Vulcan RFID Custom Universal Micro Asset Tag



Vulcan RFID Custom Universal Micro Asset Tag

Measuring at 47.6 x 15.9 mm (1.875 x 0.625 in), the Vulcan RFID Custom Universal Micro Asset Tag 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 2.7 m (9 ft) of read range on metal and 1.2-1.5 m (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.

Specialty RFID labels take advantage of sub-surface printing wherein the printed media has a protective covering. In order to remove the copy from a label, one would have to destroy the label itself.
