Online PR News – 21-January-2013 MAINtag , an emerging leader in electronic identification (EID) for the
airline and aerospace industry, has developed two new FLYtag® RFID products for cabin interior part
marking. The new FLYtag® fiber is ideal for seats and life vests, filling a need for A/C manufacturers'
expansion of cabin RFID applications in 2013.
FLYtag RFID products have been chosen by more than 50 OEMs; all are SAE AS5678 compliant. MAINtag
is AS/EN/JISQ 9100 certified. Since 2004, MAINtag has sought to leverage RFID physics to ensure
accuracy and performance of flyable ATA spec 2000 RFID tags, readers and dedicated software. The
company maintains its commitment to stay at the leading edge of R&D.
MAINtag's new global product launches include:
Developed for the life vest market, FLYtag fiber was designed by MAINtag with inflatables manufacturers'
expertise to enable identification of life vests, slides and seat covers within cabin interiors. Competitively
priced at just over US $1 (one US dollar) per unit, FLYtag fiber offers long read range while being very
lightweight and highly flexible. It may be sewn, attached with adhesive, stapled or integrated in a plastic
cavity, and can be used to tag new inflatables or retrofit existing ones. FLYtag fiber is available in both dual-
record and single-record formats and is ATA spec 2000 V.4 compliant.
This rugged ultralight "high temperature" high-performing tag was designed by MAINtag with strong support
of engine manufacturers to withstand temperatures reaching 482°F/250°C. FLYtag HT is designed for use on
metal in both non-pressurized areas and cabin interiors. It is available with high- and low-memory capacity
chips, enabling electronic identification of airborne parts for an entire life cycle. FLYtag HT is available in
dual- and multi-record formats.
"As A/C manufacturers expand their interior cabin RFID applications, MAINtag is onboard to deliver
complete state-of-the-art solution packages including tag manufacturing, readers and FLYtag manager
software. MAINtag's reputation is built on value-based and highly accurate solutions for life cycle
management of aerospace components," said MAINtag President and CEO Bruno Lo-Re.
