XERAFY PICO small and most rugged RFID on-metal tag for Manufacturing Hand Tools and Equipments, MRO Tool Tracking, Military Equipments Tracking

PICO small and most rugged RFID on-metal tag for Manufacturing Hand Tools and Equipments, MRO Tool Tracking, Military Equipments Tracking

Packaged Design For Production

The Pico Plus relies on high-performance engineered polymer to offer a small and most rugged RFID on-metal tag for production applications where critical and potentially hazardous situations require reliable identification of assets.

The IP68 rated tag achieves stunning read ranges and can be attached to tools, equipment, medical devices.


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.​

How to customize

PICO SERIES XERAFY are standard tagging solutions that are fully personalized for RFID systems, to the exact specifications of the critical assets and equipment they are tracking.

Service Bureau customization options are available to mark and program RFID tags. On the other hand, RFID labels printing can be done in the field or taken care of by the Service Bureau.

And for unique requirements and features, it is also possible to custom build a tagging solution.


PICO SERIES are customized using physical markings to feature an asset identification number, a barcode, or a logo for instance.

Custom asset tags can be custom marked in the field, or be taken care of by the Service Bureau of the manufacturer or distributor.


PICO SERIES are Programmable tags use RFID chips that are specifically designed with memory that can be written.

This allows for the tags to be encoded with custom EPC ranges for unique identification, serialized or unserialized. The quantity of information that can be encoded will depend on the specifications of the chip being used.

RFID Engineering

PICO SERIES can be designed specifically for a tracking system’s application and deployment requirements: Form factor, material, mounting system, read range, accuracy, user memory, fixed and/or handheld RFID readers, on-site printers and encoders, software configuration.

Connected assets are an example of custom-built RFID tagging solutions that refer specifically to equipment that OEMs have designed with RFID and IOT features built-in.
