(RFID) tag is designed to withstand temperatures as high as 200°C (392°F) for limited exposure times. This compact tag, which measures only 40 × 22 × 6.5 mm, easily mounts in many locations.

The tag is commonly used to track parts and trace the manufacturing process for quality improvement, error proofing, and maximizing the reusability of product carriers like pallets or conveyor segments. As the data carriers are not active during high-temperature exposure, data is preserved. Reading and writing data usually takes place outside of the high-temperature areas at 70°C (158°F) or less. The tag also allows unlimited reading and writing of data with user memory up to 112 numerical bytes or ASCII characters.
