UL certification for PCBs with embedded RFID
Two years ago Beta Layout’s Embedded RFID technology, named Magic-PCB, was patented in the USA. In a continuing process this technology has been evaluated according to US safetyClass X capacitors are used in “across-the-line” applications where their failure would not lead to electric shock. Class X safety caps are used between the “live” wires carrying the incoming AC current. In this position, a capacitor failure should not cause any electrical shock hazards, rather, a capacitor failure “between-the-lines” would usually cause a fuse or circuit breaker to open. standards for electronic products.
As Beta Layout recently obtained the Certificate of Compliance from the Underwriters Laboratory they now meet the requirements of the industry.
By embedding Murata’s Magicstrap UHF RFID module into the Printed Circuit Board, every PCB is identifiable from the cradle to the grave. Each RFID module has a unique identifying code and a user memory. Typical fields of application are process control, product security and recycling.
