The small on-metal RFID tags from Xerafy’s PICO series enable item-level tracking with small industry-grade form factors ready for deployment.

With their exceptional size-to-read-range ratio, Xerafy’s PICO series of ceramic RFID tags are proven in the field at production facilities around the world, enabling asset tracking for small equipment and tools, alongside the MICRO high temperature tags, and XS smallest RFID tags.

Size matters to RF performance with read-range and accuracy decreasing with the tags’ dimensions. Not all RFID systems can track at close ranges, and Xerafy’s early innovation in small tag sizes as well as with embeddable RFID tags that can be flush-mounted into the asset helped break the expected range/size ratio barrier for RFID systems.​

“Xerafy had the smallest tags, and they were willing to work with us on tuning so we could get exactly what we needed. We needed that size and flexibility to make this work.”
