The Xerafy OUTDOOR series tags are long range RFID tags designed to offer the weatherproof durability required for RFID container tracking and the management of cargo and RTI.
The passive RFID hard tags are engineered to perform exceptionally in outdoor tracking systems, where distances and operational conditions cannot be controlled, alongside the TRAK inventory tags and METAL SKIN RFID labeling solutions.
OUTDOOR tags have the capacity to use the metal in the asset to reach distances of 20 meters and beyond.
“Xerafy is a highly regarded specialist in the field of RFID for mission-critical applications, and their RFID tag came out on top of our evaluation.”

Passive long range RFID tags enable cost-effective tracking of shipping containers, trucks, as well as the pallets and RTIs used in logistics and manufacturing.
The rugged RFID metal tagging solutions are engineered to perform on plastics and wood, outdoors and indoors.
The OUTDOOR series tags operate at either the RAIN RFID frequency range of 902-928 MHz for US frequency version, 865-868 MHz for the EU frequency version, or 860-960 MHz for Global frequency version.
The OUTDOOR series tags are all standard passive UHF (Ultra High Frequency) tags that comply with EPCglobal Gen2v2 and ISO 18000-63 standards, also referred to as RAIN RFID.
A wide range of fixed and handheld RFID readers is available, with frequencies and antenna polarization matching the tags’ to ensure compatibility and optimal performance.
Passive RFID technology typically operates at shorter ranges compared to active RFID systems, as it relies on the energy transmitted by the RFID reader to power the RFID tag.
However, the range of passive RFID systems can be extended with optimized RFID tags such as the Xerafy OUTDOOR series.
When it comes to RFID readers, more power means more range, with fixed readers achieving longer ranges than battery-power handheld readers.
The range of a passive RFID system can be increased by using a higher-power reader or by using specialized antennas such as phased array antennas or patch antennas. These antennas can help to focus the RFID signal in a particular direction and increase the range of the system.
Another way to increase the range of passive RFID systems is to use a larger RFID tag antenna. A larger antenna will receive more energy from the reader, allowing the tag to respond at longer distances.
