RFID SnapAround® Cable Markers


  • Part No. WFS-SM-SA
  • Easy to install RFID tag
  • Mount around metal pipes, wires, cables
  • Size can be adjusted to allow other RFID inlays and frequencies



A completely unique design, the SmartMarkSnap-Around® RFID tag (WFS-SM-SA) combines the benefits of RFID with the ease of visually identifying fiber optic copper wires and other circular surfaces. Use these simple-to-install RFID tags to mark cable runs, carts, pipelines and wires. They quickly and easily snap around any circular surface.


Easy Installation


Brightly colored SnapAround cable markers are made of coiled PVC plastic and install in seconds. Just unroll and “snap” around the existing cable, optical fiber, pipe, duct or tube. The cable marker furls up and holds its tight coil around the cable for the life of the marker. Available in standard messages or custom graphics/messages.

Test* Temperatures and Duration Results
Maximum Temperature Long-term at 10 hr: 150°F (65°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: 170°F (76°C)

Short-term at 90 sec: 180°F (82°C)
Minimum Temperature -40°F (-40°C)
Temperature Cycling The tag was cycled to 400°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 lengths are available upon request.

RFID Performance


RFID Protocol UHF Class 1 Generation 2
Chip Manufacturer Impinj (96 Bit) or Philips (512 Bit)
Read Range Up to 10 feet


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 on a foam pipe, thermoplastic pipe, dry wood pole, and a steel pipe. Actual read ranges may differ depending on conditions such as environment, tag placements, hardware, etc.

Shelf Life

Stored at 70F / 50% Relative Humidity

Completely stable at room temperature
