As part of the cooperation Smartrac announces immediate availability of the Smartrac Dipole inlay based on TegoChip that is highly resistant to extreme temperatures, survives gamma radiation and electron beam sterilization, and can be tightly embedded into materials used for finished goods.
By leveraging TegoChip technology, Dipole inlays will enable digital data to survive on physical assets at the beginning of the product manufacturing process allowing additional data storage throughout the product’s lifecycle even if spanning many decades. Thus Smartrac inlays based on TegoChip also lay the foundation for a wide array of solutions that will be developed using Smartrac’s Internet of Things platform Smart Cosmos.
“Smartrac and Tego together have strong capabilities to develop solutions that meet the requirements of very demanding industrial applications” said Timothy Butler, CEO of Tego, Inc.
“We are happy to work with Tego as their TegoChip technology and application software can be used for solutions to better monitor and manage parts, tools and machines, automate processes, make intelligent decisions at the point of use and provide knowledge of history, condition and status,” said Thomas Wythe, VP sales EMEA, Intelligent Things Business Division at Smartrac Technology Group.
