The Universal Micro measuring at 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 (57 mils.), the Universal Micro RFID Asset Tag easily fits where other tags are too big and obtrusive.

Supplying up to 9 ft. of read range on metal and 4-5 ft. on plastic, wood and glass, the Micro provides incredible read ranges compared to other tags in its class. Its non-rigid, durable, foam core and polyester construction sets the Micro apart from molded RFID tags allowing for greater flexibility in tag placement.

Developed using the same premise as our original Universal RFID Asset Tag, the Universal Micro is a surface-independent using a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain excellent read ranges regardless of mounting surface.

Specifications Data

Destructive Test Summary
Impact resistance test - Impact test consisted of 10 pound cylindical weight being dropped vertically from a height of 15.75”. Tag samples were placed on concrete floor. A tag passed the test if the inlay still reads with Alien ALH-9000 handheld reader. All tags tested all were still readable after being subject to impact with a 10 lb. weight dropped from a vertical distance of 15.75”.
Chemical Test Summary
The Universal Micro tags were attached to a sheet of glass submerged in various chemicals. Observations were made at the following intervals: 2 hours, 24 hours, 48 hours. A Motorola handheld RFID reader as well as a handheld bar code reader were used to test the samples.

24 hours no effect no effect no effect adhesive ooze tag delaminated no effect no effect no effect
48 hours no effect no effect no effect adhesive tag delaminated no effect no effect no effect
Temperature Test Summary
High-temperature resistance test - These tags were attached to a sheet of glass at raised temperatures for 15 minutes. Tags were then removed from the oven and tested for readability immediately.

Low-temperature resistance test - The tags were attached to a sheet of glass and exposed to -40°F for 24 hours. Tags were then checked for readability with a Motorola handheld RFID reader. All samples were readable while at temperature just prior to removal from freezer. No tag construction defects were observed and adhesive still had a strong bond while in the freezer.
