Canadian reader and tag provider GAO RFID Asset Tracking has rolled out a long range active RFID UHF beacon tag appropriate for tracking mobile assets, controlling access or online inventory, and locating assets or personnel in designated areas.
The tag also offers long-range capabilities for wireless applications. Static data is written to the tag and is sent at a programmable interval without requiring a request from the reader.
This active RFID UHF beacon tag, model 137001, uses UHF radio frequency technology and transmits data to a handheld or fixed reader (interrogator) at distances of up to 100 meters. Its ultra-low power consumption and configurable ping rate enable it to operate for many years without additional maintenance.
The RFID tag automatically conducts wireless data transmission. Ping rate is customizable to ensure that the frequency band is not busy.
