Selecting the right RFID labels for your application can be complicated.

We have options for general purpose, advanced and specialty use applications, in a variety of sizes and materials, using inlays from leading manufacturers to meet your needs.

Factors That Affect Your RFID Read Performance

There are a number of factors to consider when selecting RFID labels. RFID read-performance is most impacted by three main factors:

Inlay Size

A larger RFID inlay gives you longer read ranges.

Reader Type

Handheld, fixed and overhead readers often perform differently and serve different use cases.

Material Surface and Environment

Surface of the material, such as corrugate box, wood, glass, plastic, metal, etc, as well as how densely items are stacked, or what is contained within the boxes, can affect the read range.

RFID Applications

Due to the many variables that can affect read range, we recommend testing labels in your actual environment to determine which label works best for your application. Your Zebra supplies representative can provide samples for testing. Additionally, by utilizing long-standing partnerships with the leading RFID inlay providers, Zebra can create custom RFID labels to make a label specific to your needs.
