Asset Tracking in Marine Applications

Asset tags used in ocean environments must be resistant to corrosion from salt spray. Camcode has worked with offshore oil rigs, shipping containers, Naval vessels, and ports around the world to tag and track assets deployed on or near the ocean.

Proven Saltwater Resistance

Specified by the US Navy (NAVSEA Corona Division IUID Center Environmental Survivability Testing Report), Seatrax Off-Shore Cranes (case study) and the Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute (Marintek), Metalphoto asset tags are trusted remain scannable in saltwater operating conditions as per ASTM B117.

In conjunction with Metalphoto’s resistance to sunlight fade, chemicals, heat and abrasion, Camcode’s Metalphoto tags ideal for a wide variety of marine operating conditions.

In other situations, 304 or 316 stainless steel barcode labels will be recommended.


The Hidden Cost of Inferior Labels

The cost of scan failure due to barcode degradation pales in comparison to the relatively low cost of an asset tag. When tags fade or detach, replacement can cost (both tag and installation labor) will far exceed the initial tag cost. Further, missing or un-readable tags can delay asset-critical maintenance.

Don’t be penny-wise, but dollar foolish. Install the asset tag with a proven technology and track record to last – Metalphoto asset tags are certified to remain scannable and legible during the operating lifespan of your asset.

Dealing with More Than Salt Spray?

Camcode has asset tracking options engineered for all extreme operating conditions:

“Camcode had the knowledge and experience to help us select a bar code label that will survive the average life span of our assets”

Branford A

“We needed the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of tags.”

“It was necessary to have an asset tag that could withstand the outdoor elements, yet was simple enough to meet basic tracking needs. We achieved both with Camcode’s asset tags.”
