Impact Resistant RFID Tag

  • Best harsh-environment RFID tag
  • Versatile attachment methods (wires, clips, hooks, etc.)
  • Metal-mount capable



Constructed of solid vulcanized rubber, the SM-0030 RFID tag offers extreme impact resistance and durability. It is perfect for harsh environment applications such as tagging factory equipment and valuable pipelines. A variety of sizes, shapes and attachment methods are available. This tag also is available with a rounded top (WF-SM-0030R).


Impact Resistant RFID


The core of this RFID tag is a small rugged circuit board with a metal wire antenna. This patent pending process allows for embeddable RFID tags that are extremely durable. The SM-0030 has been tested for use in harsh environments where impact, pressure and abrasion are likely.

Test* Temperatures and Duration Results
Maximum Temperature Long-term at 10 hr: 315°F (157°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: 350°F (177°C)

Short-term at 90 sec: 375°F (191°C)

Minimum Temperature


-40°F (-40°C)
Temperature Cycling The tag was cycled to 375°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 UHF EPC Class 1 Generation 2
Tag Type Passive Read/Write
Read Range Up to 30 feet
Frequency Range 860 ~ 960 MHz (Global)
IC Alien Higgs 3 - 480 Bits
NXP - 512 Bits
Impinj - 96 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.
