Metalcraft Intros Tiny Tag With Long Read Range

Metalcraft has announced the availability of its Universal Micro RFID Asset Tag for identification projects that require a tiny tag with a long read range regardless of the mounting surface. The tag is the latest product in Metalcraft's Universal RFID tag line.

The Universal Micro footprint measures 1.875 inches by 0.625 inch and features a low profile, Metalcraft reports. This, the company indicates, means it can easily fit where other tags are too large and obtrusive.

The Universal Micro RFID Asset Tag
Supplying approximately 9 feet of read range on metal and up to 5 feet on plastic, wood and glass, the Universal Micro provides long read ranges compared to other tags in its class, the company reports. It features a non-rigid, durable foam core and polyester construction, allowing for greater flexibility in tag placement than molded RFID tags provide.

Metalcraft's Universal RFID tag line uses a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain a long read range on any mounting surface.
