HID® IQ On-Metal Label™ RFID Tags

Small, thin self-adhesive NFC or RAIN® UHF Labels for on-metal use
HID IQ OM Labels family

HID Global IQ On-Metal (OM) Labels are white PET labels that may be encoded and printed in standard label printers to apply logos, barcodes, QR codes or text (except IQ OM LR). Their flexible special shielding allows application on flat or curved metallic objects like liquid containers, laptops, pipes or machinery.

IQ on-metal Labels come in different form factors to suit various applications in an optimal size to performance ratio. NFC labels are NFC Tag Type 2 compliant and may be used with any NFC compatible phone or device. RAIN® RFID UHF labels are available in FCC (US) or ETSI (EU) variants. All labels are delivered on reels for easy processing in a label printer.

For industrial applications, HF and UHF on-metal labels enhance the speed and accuracy of inventory and process management systems. Using RAIN RFID technology, each labeled asset can be identified in the supply chain or connected via Internet of Things (IoT), enabling businesses and consumers to identify, locate, authenticate and engage each item.

Key Features

  • Effortless integration — Simply apply tags to metallic assets.
  • Ready adoption — Interoperable with NFC Forum and RAIN UHF RFID compliant devices.
  • Enhanced effectiveness — Faster, more accurate than QR-codes or text transactions.

For high-security applications, innovative HID Trusted Tag® Services combines cryptographically secure NFC Inlays & Labels with a cloud-based authentication platform, powering frictionless, secure transactions for proof-of-presence, sweepstakes or product authentication.
