EU Universal Mini RFID Tag

Features

  • Smaller footprint and lower profile while still achieving excellent read range sets this product apart from others
  • Patented inlay design obtains excellent read ranges regardless of surface–metal, plastic, even wood
  • Subsurface printing on durable polyester protects printed copy against moderate solvents and caustics/acids
  • Excellent read range in European frequency

The closest thing you will find to a one-size-fits-all RFID solution! The European Universal Mini RFID Tag is a surface-independent tag that uses a unique inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of the surface – metal, plastic, even wood allowing you to use only one RFID tag for your asset tracking application.

The European Universal Mini RFID Tag features an inlay design that offers the lowest profile of any tags in its class – solving a common issue many customers have with other metal mount RFID tags where a thick standoff creates an obtrusive nuisance for the user.

This unique inlay adheres to a subsurface printed label constructed of durable, yet flexible polyester. This process protects the copy, logo, and/or barcode against moderate solvents and caustics/acids while our four-color processing capabilities allow you to promote your company with a label that shows off your company name or logo. Our digital printing process ensures even the most detailed logos will look crisp and clean.


Potential Applications For European Universal Mini RFID Tag

Asset Tracking – the barcode and human readable ID number on European Universal Mini RFID Tag can be used to track information about the metal asset the RFID tag is adhered to, i.e., laptops, furniture, containers, equipment and more.

Work-in-Process – the barcode and/or identification number on European Universal Mini RFID Tag can identify a “batch” OR “lot” of product or just simply identify each product as it travels through the production process.

Chemical Test Summary
Chemical soak test - The E Universal Mini tags were attached to a sheet of glass submerged in various chemicals for a 3 week period. Observations were made at the following intervals: 2 hours, 24 hours, 1 week, 2 weeks, and 3 weeks. A Motorola handheld RFID reader as well as a handheld barcode reader were used to test the samples.

Temperature Test Summary
High-temperature resistance test - These tags were attached to a sheet of glass at raised temperatures for 10 minutes. Tags were then removed from the oven and tested for readability immediately.

Low-temperature resistance test - The E Universal Mini tags were attached to a sheet of glass at low temperatures outdoors. Tags were then checked for readability with a Motorola handheld RFID reader. Tags survived and were readable for 19 hours in winter conditions with temperatures between -29° (-20°F) to -32°C (-26°F) with no signs of failure.
