HID - In Tag 500

HID Globals IN Tag 500 UHF Tag features a passive contactless transponder designed to communicate with a reader via radio frequency identification (RFID) technology.

Providing high resistance to aggressive liquids and excellent temperature resistance, the secure and reliable plastic housing encloses and protects the transponder. Easily mounted on plastic or wood using standard screws, the IN Tag 500 UHF tags optimum antenna design delivers the greatest size-to-performance ratio. This feature, along with the housings chemical resistance, ensures the tags long, useful life. For metal mounting, the specific On Metal (OM) version is designed with an additional plastic holder.

IN Tag 500 is well-suited for all applications in asset tracking and process automation, making it the ideal solution for high-temperature applications up to 140C. Its rugged construction gives it unlimited resistance to water and chemical absorption, such as salt water, acetone, mineral oil, benzene and ammonia. Durable goods manufacturing is one example of an environment where these tags are specifically used.

Featuring 512 bits user memory and 240 bits EPC number, the IN Tag 500 offers anti-collision functionality, fast data rate communication, password for data protection and a read range of up to 3 meters. Additionally, IN Tag 500 is compliant with EPCglobal-certified UHF Gen 2 readers and modules.


  • Ideal for metal and non-metal applications
  • Up to 3 meters read range when metal mounted
