Proven Durability, Accuracy and Reliability

Explore RFID Tags

Our line of durable on-metal RFID tags and labels are perfect for your metal surface application projects.  Designed to work on a variety of metal surfaces, our on-metal RFID tags work well for asset tagging, work-in-process and returnable container applications.

Our RFID tags for glass offer specialized inlays to be read through windshields and more, providing a read range of 18+ feet. We also offer a removable adhesive, perfect for those times you need a “temporary” tag - whether it’s for rental cars, rental equipment or controlling guest vehicle access

For items like plastic bins, crates and more, our variety of RFID tags can conform and provide durability, security and be tamper-proof for anti-theft RFID applications. For example, our RFID pallet tags for plastic pallets stay put under extraordinary conditions, with tough adhesive and even ext

Our Stick and Staple RFID products are ideal for applications involving hard-to-adhere surfaces (pallets, crates, barrels)with the tag’s construction protecting the inlay.

For wristbands, racebibs or credential tags, the added element of people wearing RFID solutions means color, performance but low-profile. Check out our customizable solutions for trackable, company branding.

For bales, key fobs or general hanging tags, we have RFID products that are durable, removable and reusable. Our tag’s polymer construction protects the text and RFID inlay from the elements, offering superior access control and tracking.

RFID can be used for so many different applications, like even measuring temperatures as they fluctuate or moisture levels. This can be critical for certain applications where steady levels need to be maintained. So how does this work?

What are RFID Tags?

Radio Frequency Identification, or RFID, refers to a technology where information is transmitted wirelessly over radio waves. RFID tags and labels have 3 main components:

• IC (integrated chip) which executes commands and stores data
• Antenna which absorbs RF waves and helps broadcast the signal
• Substrate (polyester, paper, etc.) which is the material that the chip and antenna are attached

How do RFID Tags work?

RFID tags work by sending and receiving information through an antenna and an attached microchip or integrated circuit. An RFID reader, a device that can generate and read the information on radio waves, is used to communicate and interact with the RFID tag. These RFID readers can both read and write to the memory on the RFID tag's microchip. This means different pieces of data (unique identifying numbers, serial numbers, etc.) can be read and written onto the tags, which can be attached to any item or product for easy tagging and tracking. Download our handbook for more.

What are the types of RFID?

There are two primary categories of RFID tags: tags with batteries and tags without batteries. Tags with batteries are called battery assist or active RFID tags. Battery enabled RFID tags incorporate a battery as a power supply or to supplement the power provided by the RFID reader.

A passive RFID tag does not use a battery and instead works by using electromagnetic energy transmitted from the RFID reader. When a passive label is read/scanned by an RFID reader it is energized (interrogated) by the radio waves coming from the reading device. The energy received from the radio waves are received via antennas attached to the passive tag's chip which powers the chip and responds to the reader all in a matter of milliseconds. Learn more in our guide.

What is the difference between an RFID "tag" and an RFID "inlay?"

Think of an RFID tag having a construction. For example, the top, first layer is the substrate or material that can be printed. The second layer is the actual RFID inlay, and the last layer is the attachment adhesive. Whereas the RFID inlay is a component of the RFID tag. It consists of the integrated circuit (IC), antenna, and substrate. Get your nine other questions answered in this informative article.
