New tag design enables greater reliability and performance while enabling reading of hundreds of flat linens quickly and accurately in harsh commercial laundry environments 

The new WT-A533 ultra-rugged RFID tags incorporate a new mechanical and antenna design for the toughest of Laundry environments. Designed to withstand 60 bar of extraction pressure with extremely low failure rates, the WT-A533 tag is a break-through in reliability and performance. 

The industries smallest, washable Fujitsu UHF RFID tags are extremely flexible, soft and durable, ideal for flat linens and garments. The ultra-rugged nature of the tag’s design and materials is intended for long deployment cycles, allowing the tag to be reused into another linen item within the intended life-cycle time, reducing total cost of ownership. 

Fujitsu UHF RFID tags are about two inches long and less than a half inch wide - about the size of a shirt stay. When sewn into linens, the small, flexible, unobtrusive tags are virtually unnoticeable.
