This beacon tag is a cost-effective long-range active RFID tag appropriate for tracking mobile assets, controlling access or online inventory, and localizing of assets or personnel in designated areas. It offers outstanding long-range capabilities for wireless applications. Static data are written on the tag and are sent at a programmable interval without requiring a request from the reader. The tag uses advanced UHF radio frequency technology and sends data to a mobile (handheld) or fixed reader (interrogator) at distances of up to 300 feet (100 meters). Its ultra-low power consumption and configurable ping rate enables it to operate effectively for many years without additional maintenance.
- 100-meter read range: Allows the longest read-range for identification and tracking using beacon technology.
- Long battery lifetime :Delivers long time maintenance-free operation, without battery replacement. The battery lifetime depends on the ping rate, which is configurable.
- UHF operating frequencies: Tags are available for both standard North American and European ISM band frequencies.
- Non-line-of-sight data transmission:Allows tags to be identified without the need of visual contact.
- Automatic transmission: Tags do not have to be “woken” – they transmit automatically.
- Industrial housing: Durable in demanding environments.
- Customizable ping rate: Ensures that the frequency band is not busy.
- Low cost: Economical choice for tracking assets with active RFID technology.
