RFID tagging solutions for all instruments and materials
Compatibility across manufacturers
Anything at a dental clinic can be connected to LM Dental Tracking System™ with complete RFID tagging solutions. In addition to LM products with integrated RFID technology an advanced RFID chip can be tagged into materials from different manufacturers integrating all dental materials for tracking with LM DTS™ scanning readers.
LM DTS™ RFID tags are available for two different UHF frequency bands:
• 865.6-867.6MHz i.e. ETSI used in e.g. EU-countries and some countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania
• 902-928MHz i.e. FCC used in e.g. North America, Australia and some countries in South America, Asia, Africa, Oceania and Europe *)
*) The appropriate frequency band allocation need to be checked with local authorities and regulations
RFID tagging principles
All the instruments in general are preferably RFID tagged using LM DTS™ RFID Flat or Round Surface Tags. If that is not possible, there’s also other options available. Please see the table below for general tagging solutions and principles. For more information and guidance, please see more information at www.dentaltracking.com, or contact your LM representative for technical help.
