Long-Distance Beaconing RFID Tag from GAO

Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) March 02, 2009 -- GAO RFID Inc. (www.GAORFID.com) announces an innovative beaconing RFID tag (GAO137001), which employs active UHF technology. This cost-effective long range RFID tag is appropriate for tracking mobile assets, controlling access or online inventory, and localization of assets or personnel in designated areas. It offers outstanding long-range capabilities for wireless applications.

This active UHF beaconing RFID tag sends data to a mobile (handheld) or fixed reader (interrogator) at distances of up to 300 feet (100 meters). Static data are written to the tags which are then transmitter at programmable intervals without requiring a request from the reader. Its ultra-low power consumption and configurable ping rate enable it to work effectively for many years without maintenance.

GAO’s active UHF Beaconing RFID Tag provides the following features: 1. Allows the longest read-range of 100-meter for identification and tracking using beacon technology 2. Long battery lifetime facilitated by the configurable ping rate 3. Delivers long-term maintenance-free operation, without battery replacements 4. Available for both standard North American and European ISM band frequencies 5. Non-line-of-sight data transmission allowing tags to be identified without the need of visual contact 6. Automatic transmission: Tags do not have to be “woken” – they transmit automatically 7. Industrial housing enabling it to be durable in demanding environments 8. Customizable ping rate ensuring that the frequency band is not busy 9. Economical choice for tracking assets with active RFID technology For more information about GAO’s active UHF beacon tag, please visit http://www.GAORFID.com or contact sales@GAORFID.com
