Micro cables for durable RFID tags

RFID tag

Increase the performance of your RFID tags even in the most demanding conditions. Bekinox® cables are micro cables made of ultra-fine steel wires that are used as antenna wires. Their conductive properties can be customized to enable safe, reliable and efficient energy and data transferBecause of their unique durability properties they can be used in the most harsh industrial environments such as in industrial laundries and in tires.

Depending on the specific characteristics and needs of your application, stainless steel wires can be customized:

- Bekinox® VN: stainless steel multi-filaments

- Bekiflex®: steel core with an outer layer of nickel, zinc or copper

For electrical insulation the cable can also be protected by a protective outerlayer.

A wide range of electrical resistances is available



Durable and long lasting

Our cables meet the highest standards of durability and flex-life to ensure a long lifetime.

They maintain their conductivity over extended usage in harsh environments, even at high temperature.


Wash resistant

100% machine washable and their performance is proven to resist 200 or more washing cycles at load pressures up to 60 bar.


Discrete to the touch

The light and flexible cables can be easily processed into the tag using standard textile process techniques like embroidery.


Quick data transfer

Our cables continuously provide a fast and accurate response time for Ultra High Frequency (UHF) solutions.
