GAO RFID Asset Tracking launched its 433 MHz RFID rugged asset tag used for outdoor asset tagging applications, particularly those operating on metallic surfaces.
This RFID rugged asset tag, model 124017, transmits signals at preset time intervals which include customer site code (CSC), tag ID, tag age counter value, movement alarm and tamper alarm status. It offers a typical transmission range of 0 to 50 meters depending on antenna configuration.
For protection against harsh environmental conditions, the asset tag is encapsulated in a molded plastic case. In addition, the tag can be configured to accommodate Wiegand interfacing. A collision avoidance algorithm is also used to disperse the transmissions around the mean repetition interval.
The tag’s life is estimated at five-years at a transmission time interval of approximately 1.5 seconds.
