A versatile and affordable RFID tag made in the USA to fit a wide array of on-metal and standard applications, the Universal MC RFID Tag is available both preprinted and onsite printable to handle whatever asset tagging application you have.

The perfect solution for tracking assets on metal or non-metal surfaces that do not allow for attachment directly to the asset. The construction protects the inlay from environmental conditions that could affect the performance of the RFID tag.

Perfect for tracking returnable containers such as pallets, crates or totes, Metalcraft’s Standard RFID Tag attaches directly to non-metal assets.

The only thing “mini” about this tag is its size! With a smaller footprint and lower profile, the Onsite Printable Universal Mini RFID Tag easily fits where other tags may be too large and obtrusive and still gives incredible read ranges compared to other tags in its class.

The Universal Micro RFID Tag measuring 1 7/8” x 5/8” is a great solution to your identification projects that require a small RFID tag with great read range. With a tiny footprint and low profile, the Universal Micro RFID Tag easily fits where other tags are too big and obtrusive.

The only thing “mini” about this tag is its size! With a smaller footprint and lower profile, the Universal Mini RFID Tag easily fits where other tags may be too large and obtrusive and still gives incredible read ranges compared to other tags in its class.

The closest thing you will find to a one-size-fits-all” RFID solution! The Universal RFID Asset Tag is a surface-independent tag that uses a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface – metal, plastic, even wood.
