Product Description

The most durable tag for challenging industrial asset management applications


The patent pending solution of Confidex Ironside tag provides totally new benchmark for low-cost passive RFID in it's size and durability (IP68) to various customer requirements. The tag can be mounted easily on any metallic surfaces either with industrial adhesive or mechanically e.g. with pop rivets.

Ironside can be read up to 4-9 meters, enabling several on-metal identification challenges to be solved which earlier were impossible with passive RFID.

Ironside has passed the rigorous testing requirements for the Aerospace Standard AS5678 specification. It has been successfully used in tracking assets from steel pallets to train wagons.
