SMARTRAC, RFMicron Release Passive RFID Temperature Sensor Technology
The new sensors enable users to track the temperatures of products or assets via low-cost disposable passive RFID tags and off-the-shelf UHF EPC Gen 2 readers.
The sensor tags can be affixed to cardboard, plastic, wood, stone or other construction materials. According to Hyytinen, they are intended to serve as a solution for applications in which food or other perishable items, or conditions within a room, need to be periodically monitored. He says he expects the Sensor Temperature DogBone to be used in the food cold chain, as well as for industrial, health-care, agricultural and Internet of Things applications.Nordic ID handheld reader loaded with RFMicron software to interpret sensor data and manage any alarms or alerts related to temperature readings outside of preset acceptable perimeters. The tags have peel-and-stick backing, enabling them to be easily affixed to a piece of equipment. These sensor tags are made with a quad-flat no-leads (QFN) package soldered to an antenna.
The kit, Lambrecht explains, is designed to enable companies that use motorized equipment to easily monitor the temperatures of their devices and thereby identify when those temperature levels might indicate a problem. For instance, equipment often begins running hotter than normal if failure is imminent. By identifying the temperature change in advance of a failure, users can replace that piece of equipment (or provide preventative maintenance) before its failure can disrupt their operations. The system, he says, offers an easy, low-cost alternative to mounting temperature loggers on equipment that must be accessed and visually viewed wherever they may be mounted on that motor or other gear.
