Farsens released another product to ease the design of custom passive EPC Class 1 Gen 2 RFID sensors

Passive EPC Gen 2 RFID module for sensor development.

Farsens released V-Meter, passive UHF RFID module designed to allow easy development of passive EPC Class 1 Gen 2 RFID sensors using voltage-based sensors without wireless functionality.

Passive EPC Gen 2 RFID module for voltage-based sensors

V-Meter

Embedding a low voltage DC metering circuitry to measure the voltage applied to its input channel, the V-Meter is capable of transmitting the read voltage values along with the unique 96-bit tag ID when interrogated with any standard EPC Class 1 Gen 2 compliant reader. This passive UHF RFID module represents a convenient starting point for companies that want to develop their own EPC Class 1 Gen 2 passive sensors, since they do not need to spend efforts and resources in the design of the RF part of the product, but just select the preferred voltage-based sensors, such as load cells or strain gages, and integrate them with the V-Meter. V-Meter can measure voltage values ranging from 0 to 1.5 volts, with accuracy of ±1%. The standard product models come in non-protected PCB formats for being encapsulated in custom encasements to meet any requirement in terms of durability and mounting methods. The V-Meter is available with one or four input channels. Customers can choose among different integrated antenna designs with different radiation directivity or product versions with SMA connector to be used with external antennas.

HID Global unveiled small on-metal UHF RFID tag with large memory options and excellent resistance to harsh conditions

Large memory UHF RFID tags.

IronTag® 206, the latest product unveiled by HID Global, is a small rugged UHF RFID tag for metallic assets that stands out by its large user memory options and its flame resistant rating, which is the highest available in a UHF tag, according to HID Global.

Flame resistant, large memory UHF RFID tag

IronTag 206

IronTag 206 has an UL 94 V-0 rating that means it immediately self-extinguishes without dripping burning particles that might cause flames to spread when an ignition source standing on it is removed. Furthermore, this RFID tag is waterproof and capable of surviving mechanical stresses, high temperature with peaks up to 220°C for 10 hours, challenging thermal cycling, exposure to corrosive chemicals and prolonged use in outdoor environments. In spite of its small dimensions of just 33 mm x 30 mm x 5.8 mm, IronTag 206 provides excellent on-metal performance with read range up to 2.5 meters and accommodates two holes to be firmly mounted with screws. Leveraging integrated chips of the Impinj® Monza® X family, which are EPC Class 1 Gen 2 compliant and offer large user memory that can be permanently locked after being written, the IronTag 206 is suitable for tracking aircraft parts during assembly and maintenance and other applications that require a rugged UHF RFID tag that must securely store data about the whole history of tracked assets. The first chip option, the Impinj Monza X-2K Dura chip, comes with 2176 bits of user memory, including three 512-bit blocks and one 128-bit block that can be permanently locked. The second option is represented by the Monza X-8K Dura that has 8192 bits of user memory with four 512-bit blocks and twelve 128-bit blocks that can be permanently locked. IronTag 206 is available in versions optimized for E.U. standards (865-868 MHz) or U.S. standards (902-928 MHz). Customization services include high-bond, high-temperature adhesive and alternate embossed logo.

Please contact HID Global for additional information on this small and rugged UHF RFID tag with large user memory. Looking for RFID tags for other applications? Try our RFID Tag Search Engine or contact us at info@veryfields.net, also for suggestions about complete RFID solutions.

UHF label for cosmetics, pharmaceutical packaging

EOS-120

Measuring 36.25 mm x 25.4 mm and exhibiting strong UHF near field performance, the EOS-120 is ideally suited for applications where items that need to be tagged are very small and short read range is preferred. Thanks to its high performance when placed in close proximity to liquids, this UHF label represents a reliable solution also for tagging bottles and vials. The EOS-120, like all the TAGEOS labels, is produced through TAGEOS’ special manufacturing process that allows to attach both RFID antenna and RFID chip directly on paper without the need for a plastic inlay, leading to lower production costs without forgoing excellent performance.
