Tiny and rugged LF HF UHF RFID tags

HID Global’s UHF Brick Tag models

The UHF models have a ceramic enclosure and are specifically designed to track small metal assets such as work tools, weapons, surgical instruments and other small metal assets. They survive prolonged use in demanding industrial environments, endure exposure to aggressive chemicals and reliably withstand repeated autoclave sterilization processes. The UHF Brick Tag transponders are available in four sizes: 10mm x 2.5mm x 2.5mm (Brick Tag 60), 5mm x 5mm x 3mm (Brick Tag 75), 10mm x 5mm x 3mm (Brick Tag 150), 23mm x 9mm x 3mm (Brick Tag 600). All the UHF Brick Tag models use the Alien Technology Higgs-3 chip.

The standard HF version, which embeds the HID Global Vigo 1K™ chip, is compatible with the ISO 15693 standard and, if NDEF formatted, offers compliance with the NFC Forum Type 5 Tag  to be read with any NFC reading device, smartphones included. Working well on both metal and non-metal surfaces, the Brick Tag with Vigo 1K chip is a great choice for hand tools, IT devices, cables and other assets with very limited space to accommodate a tag.

As per the LF frequency band, a new product that leverages a HDX chip that works at 134.2 kHz and offers 128 bits of read-only memory has joined a previously released 130 kHz model based on a Nova chip with a 160 bit EEPROM.
