Farsens presented HygroFenix, passive RFID temperature and humidity sensor

Passive UHF RFID sensors.

New product of Farsens’ broad family of battery-free UHF RFID sensors that work with EPC Class 1 Gen 2 RFID standard readers, HygroFenix is a passive RFID temperature and humidity sensor that allows accurate measurements of temperature and relative humidity while providing wireless data transmission with read range up to 1.5 meters.

Passive RFID temperature humidity sensor

HygroFenix

HygroFenix represents not only a cost-effective option for simultaneous RFID-enable asset tracking and measurement of temperature and relative humidity, but also an easy solution for situations where there is the need for automatic temperature and humidity measurement, but electrical wiring is not possible or the use of batteries is not convenient. Such situations can be identified for example in data centers where the environmental conditions must be monitored to assure the correct working of IT assets. HygroFenix is able to measure values of relative humidity from 0% to 100%, with maximum accuracy of ±4.5% and resolution of 0.004%. As per the temperature measurement capabilities, the measurable values range from -30°C to 85°C, with maximum accuracy of ±0.5°C and resolution of 0.016°C. A variety of antenna models with different directivity are available to match specific application requirements within the 860-960 MHz band. Additionally, Farsens can deliver fully customized encasements to meet any need in terms of mounting options and protection for use in the harshest environments.

RTEC released small passive UHF on-metal tags with sensing and auto-retuning capabilities

On-metal RFID tags RFMicron Magnus-s2Using the RFMicron Magnus-S2 chip with RFMicron’s Chameleon technology, the new RTEC products — Proton-Magnus, Atom-Magnus and Rs-Magnus — are small passive UHF on-metal RFID tags capable of sensing the proximity of objects and the surrounding pressure and moisture variations and automatically adapt theirselves to these de-tuning factors to provide high performance constantly.

The innovative RFMicron’s Chameleon technology dynamically adjusts the chip’s input impedance to correct mismatches that occur when external factors alter the impedance of the tag’s antenna. Leveraging the same chip capabilities, these RTEC tags can be employed for security purposes, for instance to check if an object is moved away from close proximity to the tag, and as low-cost pressure and moisture sensors. The RFMicron Magnus-S2 chip has two possible memory configurations: 128 bits of EPC memory + 144 bits of user memory, or 272 bits of EPC memory and 0 bits of user memory.

Atom-Magnus

Proton-Magnus and Atom-Magnus are engineered to track metallic work tools, IT assets, medical equipment and Work in Process metallic parts. Their rugged encasement, which is rated IP68 and withstands temperature up to 150°C, allows these small passive UHF on-metal RFID tags to be reliably used in the harshest industrial environments.
Proton-Magnus measures just 10 x 5 x 3.2 mm and provides read range up to 2.5 meters. A bit larger with dimensions of 25 x 9 x 3.2 mm, the Atom-Magnus can be read from up to 5 meters.

Avery Dennison AD-172u7 and AD-806u7, small high performance UHF inlays for retail and healthcare applications

Avery-Dennison-UHF-RFID-tags-retail-healthcare.

Recently unveiled by Avery Dennison, the AD-172u7 and AD-806u7 are UHF inlays designed to provide excellent performance in retail and healthcare applications that require very small RFID tags.

Retail UHF RFID tags, jewelry

AD-172u7

.

.

Featuring an antenna of 22 x 12.5 mm, the AD-172u7 is strongly suggested for retail applications where handheld readers are used. This small UHF RFID inlay is a great solution for jewelry, small apparel items, cosmetics and other goods in retail applications. The product is suitable also for tracking items in healthcare applications. The AD-172u7 offered in wet inlay format with die-cut dimensions of 24 x 15.5 mm.

Healthcare UHF RFID tags, foil blisters

AD-806u7

.

.

The AD-806u7 has an antenna that measures just 16 x 16 mm and is specifically designed to deliver high read performance in pharmaceutical items tagging and other healthcare applications. The product works well in dense tag populations and when placed on containers filled with liquids. Furthermore, in certain situations this UHF tag can take advantage of close proximity of foil blisters and similar packaging used in the pharmaceutical market. Thanks to its small dimensions, the AD-806u7 is suitable also for small apparel items tagging and other item-level applications. The tag is available in dry inlay and wet inlay formats.

.

Both the AD-172u7 and AD-806u7 leverage the NXP UCODE 7 chip that provides enhanced read sensitivity, 128 bits of EPC memory and a 48-bit serialized and unalterable Tag ID number.
Please contact Avery Dennison for additional information on these UHF RFID tags for retail and healthcare applications. Looking for other kinds of RFID tags or a complete RFID solutions? Try our RFID tag search engine or contact us.
