Toronto , Canada (PressExposure) October 14, 2009 -- GAO RFID Inc. (www.GAORFID.com) recommends its UHF passive RFID animal tag operating in a frequency range of 860MHz to 960MHz. The RFID tag is suitable for the tracking of any medium-sized livestock, and is ideal for use with sheep due to its shape. With it, the tagged animal can be monitored and information regarding its feeding, location, vaccination and health history can be maintained.
In the past, animal tagging has primarily been done using low frequency transponders; however, the innovative EPC Gen 2 Class 1 tag addresses some of the shortcomings of using LF. Specifically, UHF tags offer a much higher read range as well as the ability to handle collisions between the signals coming from multiple tags such as which would occur when livestock are funneled through a gate.
GAO RFID Inc.'s UHF RFID passive sheep tag, model 116033, shows robust performance over the entire UHF bandwidth and operates reliably in dense reader environments while maintaining optimum read range. The tag also offers a unique custom command set, which ensures easy, secure communication between the transponder and RFID readers; the custom command set includes Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) and Read Protection. Importantly, this RFID tag has an IP67 rating which guarantees its suitability for use in harsh environments making it an ideal choice for tracking sheep.
