All HireTAGs are world tags and contain 512 bits of user memory and a unique ID which is programmed during the HireTAG manufacture.
The HireTAG unique ID is constructed thus:
- The unique item serial number
- A serial number modifier – allows more than one tag with the same unique serial number on a piece of equipment
- The owner of the equipment
- The manufacturer of the tag
HireTAGs are usually supplied with a consecutive set of serial numbers.
The Barcode part of the HireTAG represents the unique serial number.
The owner of the equipment is displayed in human readable format i.e plain text or the owner's logo.
