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. Developed the same as our Universal Mini RFID Tag – but now you can reap the benefits of onsite printing.

The Onsite Printable Universal Mini RFID 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. Along with the Universal Mini RFID Tag, the Universal RFID Hard Tag, Universal Micro RFID Tag and the Universal MC RFID Tag, these products make up a revolutionary product line that allows you to use only one RFID tag for your asset tracking application.

This unique inlay adheres to a thermal transfer printing receptive substrate constructed from a variety of durable materials.


Potential Applications for Onsite Printable Universal Mini RFID Tags

Asset Tracking – the barcode and human readable ID number on Onsite Printable 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, containers, equipment and more. 

Work-in-Process – the barcode and/or identification number on Onsite Printable 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.

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 Onsite Printable 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 Iowa winter conditions with temperatures between -21 to -26°F with no signs of failure.
