GAO RFID announced a new semi-passive RFID badge card designed for asset tracking applications such as vehicle yard management and IT asset tracking.
The card, model 136008, operates over a frequency range of 902 – 908 MHz for North America and 865 – 868 MHz for Europe and India, and boasts high signal-received sensitivity and backscatter efficiency.
It incorporates a clip-on slot for tagging to clothing and offers long-range operation of up to 50 meters in open space and 35 meters in other environments. The tag has 64 kilobytes of on-tag memory to store personnel information, authentication keys, history or other data directly on the tag.
The RFID tag is said to provide good visibility of the asset or person, enhancing control, security and accountability.
