High-Performance, Metal Mount RFID Label
High-Performance Metal Mount RFID Label
Long read range makes this label a cost-effective alternative
Use this foam-backed, RFID and barcode tag in a variety of applications such as identifying rack locations in a warehouse, tracking metallic assets like fleet trucks, forklifts and tractors, as well as IT assets. The customized antenna offers a long read range, making this label a cost-effective alternative to higher priced metal mount models. It reads up to 10 feet on metal with a handheld reader; 20 feet with fixed-mount readers.
Three ways to identity your assets
Easily obtain information via RFID, barcode or human-readable data. This label is available with custom printed barcode information, serial numbers, or your corporate logo and message. Label will read directly on metal.
Attaches directly onto metallic surfaces
Multiple mounting options available, from aggressive permanent adhesive to a magnetic backing for quick removal and re-use.
- Reads farther than other inlays
- Long read range of up to 20 feet
- 1D and 2D barcode, and human readable information available
Foam-backed Metal Mount RFID Label
|Dimensions||4.103" x 1.200" x 1.250"|
|Overall Thickness||13 mils|
|Service Temperature Range||0ºF to 140ºF|
|Oil Resistance||Very Good|
|Test*||Temperatures and Duration
|Maximum Temperature||Long-term at 10 hr: 140°F (60°C)||No effect on tag. Tag remained the same in appearance and RFID performance/function. There was no sign of peeling, tearing or destruction. The tag read normal after the tests. *Test is not limiting.|
Standard at 5 min: 158°F (70°C)
|Short-term at 90 sec: 168°F (76°C)|
|Temperature Cycling||The tag was cycled to 168°F at equilibrium for five times. Between each cycle, it was air cooled to room temperature and read with an RFID reader.|
Custom colors and text are available upon request

Tag performance was experimentally measured in an anechoic chamber and a known set of experimental variables. The antenna used for measurements was linearly polarized and of monostatic configuration. The direction of tested polarization is as follows.
Optimal Read Range*
*Tag performance was measured free of material influence, on a dry wood, window glass, thermoplastic, and steel slabs. Actual read ranges may differ depending on conditions such as environment, tag placements, hardware, etc.
