Can HF Tags Survive High Temperatures?

Posted By RFID Journal, 01.03.2013
Are there any RFID tags with Mifare 1K chips that can withstand temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit)?

Since I was unaware of any passive high-frequency (HF) tags designed to withstand that kind of temperature, I reached out to NXP Semiconductors, which produces the Mifare RFID chips. According to the firm, your best bet would be to reach out to Balluff, which offers a variety of passive HF transponders for industrial applications.

Balluff's BIS M-132-10/L-HT tag contains 736 bytes of user memory and can withstand temperatures of up to 200 degrees. The tag is a circle with a diameter of 25 millimeters (1 inch), and is 5 millimeters (0.2 inch) thick. The company also offers another version, the BIS M-134-10/L-HT tag, which has a diameter of 50 millimeters (2 inches) and is 5 millimeters (0.2 inch) thick. In the United States, you can reach Balluff by calling 1-800-543-8390.
