Why to choose our RFID tags?

Etik Ouest manufactures RFID bib tags used for sporting events such as running races and marathons. They track time and position of participants. RFID tags generate automated data collection, offer greater accuracy and facilitate the process of recording runners’ times.

The bib tag is made of a foam material that creates a distance between the tag and the body, allowing the radio wave to circulate and limiting interference from the human body.

For greater precision, we recommend 2 tags per bib, for the highest detection and measurement rates.
