Project Description

The only thing “mini” about this tag is its size!

With a smaller footprint and lower profile than the original Universal RFID Asset Tag, the Universal Mini RFID Asset Tag easily fits in smaller places and on assets where other tags may be too large.

Developed using the same premise as our original Universal RFID Asset Tag, the smaller tag utilizes a patented inlay design and passive RFID technology to obtain incredible read ranges on a variety of different materials – metal, plastic, even wood. And customer programming matches the printed bar code information for two tracking technologies.

Chemical Test Summary

The Universal Mini tags were attached to a sheet of glass submerged in various chemicals for a 3 week period.
Observations were made at the following intervals: 2 hours, 24 hours, 1 week, 2 weeks, and 3 weeks. A Motorola
handheld RFID reader as well as a handheld barcode reader were used to test the samples.

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 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
extreme winter conditions with temperatures between -29 to -32°C with no signs of failure.

Read Range Test Summary

In many cases the tags read intermittently for longer distances than those indicated, however, the results reported below were for continuously responding reads.
