RFID Mount on Metal and Mount in Metal Tags
SkyRFID has a very wide assortment of mount on metal and mount in metal tags in LF, HF and UHF. You can now purchase Mount on Metal Tags in most frequencies including the UHF GEN2 Heavy Duty Mount on Metal Tags that provide very long read distances and are impervious to inclement weather.
LF (125 kHz. & 134.2 kHz)
What most people don't know is that the LF 125 kHz. & 134.2 kHz. are the friendliest metal frequencies in RFID! While the read range is very short you can actually take a finished inlay such as the wedge shown below and directly attach it to metal.
If fact you can even mount it inside a cutout or recess flush in a metal object and have it read every time! - Mount in Metal!
This finished tag is only 12 mm X 6 mm x 3 mm.
It uses HDX (Half Duplex) for communication and FSK (Frequency Shift Keying) modulation.
We supply this tag in a Read Only or Read Write (80 bits) configuration.
Perfect for mounting in bearings, steel castings or any other metal asset that you need to track.
For longer read distances and with a larger finished package you can also use our 134.2 kHz. RFID Metal Mount Tag the "Hole Mount" shown below as a bare inlay and then what it looks like encapsulated or packaged.
When you need really long distances for LF - 134.2 kHz the following tags have read ranges measured in meters - not inches!
Displayed here at about 1/2 its actual size of 85 mm or 3 3/8 inches in diameter and 5.5 mm thick, this 134.2 LF tag is fully ISO 11784 and ISO 11785 compliant.
Plus it has a read range of up to 1.5 meters when attached to metal!
With an IP rating of 53 and Mechanical Shock and Vibration certified to IEC 68-2-27 and IEC 68-2-6 this tag is very suited to industrial use such as waste management, asset management, access control and more.
The tag comes in 64 bits read only or 80 bits read write.
Also shown at less than 1/2 of its actual size this 120 mm x 20 mm LF transponder tube has an incredible read distance of 2 meters! This tag is also ISO 11784 and ISO 11785 compliant. This is also a read write tag and is very usable in industrial environments.

It comes in a standard size of 102 mm x 45 mm x 7 mm. Once adhered to metal you can always use easy to make self adhesive labels to change the tags visual contents and appearance. Not sure what we mean by changing the tags visual contents? Mouse over the tag to see what we mean!
Designed as a low cost tag for mounting on metal, near liquids and duration event.
Light duty service environments are where this tag perfroms well with an extended read distance of 2 ~ 3 meters when attached to metal.
