Coats develops thread antenna for use with RFID tag

Industrial threads producer Coats Group said it has developed a metallised thread antenna specifically for use with a revolutionary radio frequency identification (RFID) tag.

Convergence Systems Limited (CSL), a provider of RFID products, is launching a RFID metallised thread tag designed for tracking applications in the industrial laundry, leather, textile and uniform sectors.

“The patented CSL CS8200 RFID tag includes an integrated circuit and a partially metallised thread, specifically developed by Coats for CSL,” a Coats press release informed.

According to Coats, the thread acts as an antenna while also securing the tag to clothing, leather or other thin flexible materials.

“The small, flexible RFID tag can be easily and securely sewn into a uniform, table linen, handbag or other textile in an inconspicuous location, such as in the garment seam or behind the brand label,” it added.

The development of the thread is of particular significance for Coats as it marks the successful first commercial step for its conductive threads.

Building conductivity into thread means it is then possible to incorporate intelligence which opens up many new and diverse product markets.

CEO at Coats, Paul Forman said, “This RFID metallised thread tag provides an outstanding solution for quick and accurate inventory management as well as brand authentication of garments and textiles.”

“It is a prime example of Coats' innovation as we extend beyond traditional thread and develop 'clever thin lines' which can transmit and even carry data,” Forman too added.

“With exceptional durability for washing, drying, dry cleaning and ironing, the CS8200 is a cost-effective solution for efficient laundry process control, such as batch check in or check out of linens or uniforms,” it noted.

“In addition to enabling accurate tracking and management of commercial laundry, the CSL tag is ideal for brand authentication and security of fashion apparel and accessories,” Coats observed.

CSL managing director Jerry Garrett said, “This is the only RFID tag that allows the user to customise the application read range by altering the metallised thread length.”

“Our unique solution is tailor-made for helping industrial laundry, textile and uniform businesses save time and money in logistics, security and processing,” Garrett observed. (AR)
