Pico Tag


  • Compact in size for increased versatility
  • Maximal performance-to-size ratio
  • Excellent identification performance even with its small size


This small tag, the Pico Tag, can fit into the head of a bolt to RFID-enable any aviation, automotive or manufacturing product. It also is ideal for use in electronic devices and tracking weapons. Because of its small size, this tag can be combined with a variety of closures such as cable zip ties. This tag has a high performance-to-size ratio, provides superior identification from more than three feet yet is smaller than half-an-inch in length.

Test* Temperatures and Duration
Maximum Temperature Long-term at 10 hr: 302°F (150°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: 340°F (171°C)

Short-term at 90 sec: 360°F (182°C)
Minimum Temperature -40°F (-40°C)
Temperature Cycling The tag was cycled to 360°F at equilibrium for five times. Between each cycle, it was air cooled to room temperature and read with an RFID reader.


RFID Performance


RFID Protocol EPC Class 1 Gen 2; ISO18000-6C
Tag Type Passive Read/Write
Frequency Range 902-928 MHz (US)
Memory 512 bits


Tested Polarization:


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* on Different Material Surfaces:


*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.
