New addition to Farsens’ portfolio of passive RFID sensors, Photon is a UHF RFID field strength meter that uses its high-brightness green Light Emitting Diode (LED) to provide a visual feedback on the magnitude of the surrounding UHF RFID field.
Battery-free device working with any EPC Class 1 Gen 2 RFID reader, the Photon is a useful tool to assess the performance of new or aging UHF RFID implementations, allowing to identify and eliminate weaknesses and therefore deliver better system installations. The on-board LED, which is based on a InGaN technology and provides wide viewing angle of 120 degrees, gives qualitative information on the RF strength. The stronger the RF field in a specific position and a specific orientation, the brighter the LED shines. Photon’s applications are not limited to the assessment of UHF RFID field strength. In fact, the product can be used as visual alert generator when carried by a person who enters a specific area or has to perform a certain task at a particular location. This UHF RFID field strength meter can be delivered in non-protected PCB formats or encapsulated in customized encasements to meet any requirement in terms of mounting options and durability. Diverse antenna models are available to offer different directivity and read range up to 3 meters.
