Which Vendors Offer RFID-based Temperature and Humidity Sensors?

Posted By RFID Journal, 01.16.2014

Are there any companies that offer such a product, aside from RF Code?

—Name withheld


Yes, there are several.

Ekahau offers an active tag featuring humidity and temperature sensors, known as the TS1 Sensor.

AeroScout offers an active tag with a temperature sensor (see Shands Cuts Equipment Search Time by 98 Percent).

CAEN RFID makes a variety of temperature loggers. The company's easy2log RT0005 model, for example, is a low-cost passive temperature logger that can be used with standard passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) readers based on the ISO 18000-6C standard.

TempTrip provides RFID-enabled temperature loggers. In 2012, the firm introduced a credit-card-size device featuring a button that can be pressed to start or mark temperature measurements at multiple points throughout a product's cold chain journey. When the button is pressed, a light-emitting diode (LED) on the tag blinks red if the temperature is out of range, or displays solid green if programmed parameters have been met. The tag can be affixed to packages, cases and pallets, and is capable of logging thousands of time and temperature points (see RFID News Roundup: TempTrip Announces RFID-enabled Temperature Tag for Food, Pharmaceutical Cold Chains).

Microsensys GmbH produces a range of passive sensor tags and semi-passive tags.

Farsens, a relatively new entry into the market, makes a number of passive RFID sensors, including a model that measures pressure in sealed places.

TeleTracking offers temperature sensor tags as part of its real-time location system (RTLS).

• And Convergence Systems Ltd. (CSL) makes the CS8300 Temperature Sensing Tag.

Most of these products—and, no doubt, several new offerings—will be exhibited at RFID Journal LIVE!, which will take place in Orlando, Fla., on Apr. 8-12, 2014.
