ProximaRF Technology Corp. announced a distribution agreement with Meridius Inc. for ProximaRF’s line of passive energy harvesting temperature sensors and data loggers for customers in the food and cold chain industry.
ProximaRF’s high-frequency RFID delivers flexible and easy to implement cold chain, industrial and pharmaceutical passive sensing and data logging solutions. The passive sensors harvest energy from the high-frequency radio frequency field and require no battery.
The temperature sensors can be embedded in cold chain containers and boxes to be read with a handheld device operating the Meridius mobile ProSAFE software. By adding a battery, the sensor becomes a data logger for those applications that require continual temperature data points.
ProximaRF’s sensing technology leverages 13.56MHz RFID enabled sensor transponders with on-board antenna and temperature sensors. High frequency RFID enabled sensors provide the necessary security and accuracy of proximity reading where water content from food stuffs, produce and beverages would interfere with ultra-high frequency emissions.
