RFID transponders and labels

RFID transponders and labels

One portfolio for every application

All RFID systems need transponders that are custom-tailored to the specific requirements of the application. In addition to environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity, technical properties such as read range are also crucial. Siemens offers a comprehensive transponder portfolio that can be adapted to every application.


HF range: ISO 15693 transponders

The portfolio of ISO 15693-compliant Siemens RFID transponder is especially varied. All products are compatible with the SIMATIC RF1000 and RF300 systems in ISO mode and the compact SIMATIC RF200.
