Farsens Announces Prototype UHF RFID Temperature Data Logger
Farsens, a Spanish developer of RFID sensor tags, has unveiled a prototype semi-passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID temperature data logger designed for cold-chain monitoring. The Logos-T data logger works with EPC Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C readers, the company reports, and requires no custom commands to operate.
The Logos-T can be configured to perform temperature measurements at specified time intervals. If this function is enabled, the temperature data, along with a timestamp, can be stored in the device's internal nonvolatile memory. The prototype is ready to be shipped, Farsens notes, though as a product under development, the Logos-T may change before being finalized, and materials, sizes and other features can be modified to suit a user's particular application.
The data logger comes with two main interfaces: RFID and manual. The RFID interface allows detailed configuration and data extraction from the device. Once the device has been correctly configured, the manual interface can be used for visual status indication and start/stop operations. A multi-color LED is included for status indication, Farsens adds, and a push button for interacting with the device in the field without the need for further equipment. In addition, the Logos-T supports several alerts that provide basic information about the tag's status in a single read that can be performed within milliseconds, the company says.
