HBW2 Small Footprint Metal Mount RFID Tag

  • Excellent metal-mount performance
  • Long RFID read range (over 10 feet)
  • Ceramic outer shell provides superior durability
  • Extremely small form factor



The HBW2 Small Footprint RFID Tag from William Frick & Company is our stealth tag, perfect for discreet use in asset management and telecom equipment administration. The HBW2 RFID tag, which comes with a high-performance permanent adhesive backing, can be mounted directly onto metal surfaces, or embedded or hidden in most electronics equipment to assist in discovery and tracking. The adhesive can be changed to meet the needs of any application.


Tools and Firearms Tracking


Because this tag has such a small footprint and works on metal, it is perfect for tracking firearms, tools and metal containers. A tag can easily be hidden or embedded into small assets and securely applied with an aggressive adhesive backing.


Network and Telecommunication Equipment Administration


Frick's HBW2 RFID tags can be used to identify metal cabinets, computer equipment and telecommunications equipment. They are perfect for managing technology and telecom equipment because of their small form factor, long read range, and high durability of the outer ceramic casing.


They also can be used to discover powered down or off-network resources. The large storage size of the HBW2 RFID tag can keep an audit trail of critical IT information–from the equipment's purchase date to maintenance records to destruction date.


Metal Mount Capability


The HBW2 RFID tag can be directly attached via adhesive to metallic surfaces without degradation in readability.

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 slab, standard steel slab, standard window glass, and standard thermoplastic. Actual read ranges may differ depending on conditions such as environment, tag placements, hardware, etc.
