FAQs RFID Sensors

What are RFID Sensors?

RFID sensors are constructed with specialized sensing chips that monitor environmental conditions and wirelessly send the data when interrogated by an RFID reader.

The passive sensors take their energy from the radio waves generated by the reader, enabling entirely wireless and battery-free operations.

Rugged sensing tags, such as the Xerafy XENSE series, can be embedded in concrete or plaster, allowing for automatic identification, data collection, and data transfer over long distances and through materials.

What are the advantages of wireless RFID Sensors?

Passive RFID sensors like the Xerafy XENSE series enable immediate monitoring and control purposes, at an entry-level cost thanks to the absence of a battery.


RFID sensors provide real-time data wirelessly and remotely, eliminating the need for later download. The data captured by the sensor tag is typically transmitted to a reader, which can then be transferred to a cloud-based system or gateway for further analysis and monitoring.


Sensing loggers on the other hand will require a more complex setup involving a battery, wired sensors, etc… in order to trace a range of data over a specific period of time.

What can be measured with an RFID sensor tag?

Sensing features cover a full range of monitoring parameter options:


-40°C to +125°C (with external temperature sensor above for accurate measurement)


Percentage of humidity in the air





Detect and monitor motion, shocks



Some parameters are monitored directly by the IC chip, while others rely on resistive or capacitive sensors.


Xerafy XENSE is a fully customizable sensing platform that allows the sensor to be designed to specifications by leveraging the company’s extensive library of trusted industry-grade form factors, mounting options, materials, and sensing features.

How to read RFID sensor data?

Xerafy XENSE sensors can be read using any reader complying with RAIN RFID, the global Radio-frequency identification (RFID) standard. Sensors are interrogated using standard EPC (Electronic Product Code) commands, to retrieve the sensor data required for the monitoring software/system.

Hundreds of sensors can be monitored simultaneously, using fixed, handheld, and /or drone RFID readers. The type and power level of the RFID reader will influence the distance at which sensor tags can be read. However, the accuracy of the sensor is not impacted by this RF energy, and guidance is available for optimization.


Many reader manufacturers already have demo software available, which allows to quickly compute temperature and humidity, as well as SDKs to develop a custom software.

How are RFID Temperature Sensors used in Construction?

RFID temperature sensors are an invaluable tool in the construction industry, especially for real-time monitoring and controls during concrete curing processes.


The Xerafy XENSE Temp sensor tag has been specially engineered to withstand the harshest of environments, including heat, moisture, pressure, and even metal. As a fully wireless sensor, it is embeddable into a concrete structure with no battery nor maintenance involved.

How is RFID sensing used in Infrastructure Monitoring?

Strain sensors help detect changes in civil engineering structures, ground, and buildings. They combine both environmental and structural measurements necessary for infrastructure monitoring.

What is the role of RFID Sensors in preventive maintenance?

RFID sensing is used to anticipate wear or breakdowns. They enable maintenance technicians to focus on key issues and provide data points to build predictive models.


RFID sensors for preventive maintenance are used to monitor temperatures, vibrations, strain, voltage, contact… They are engineered to fit in harsh environments (heat, moisture, metal…) and rotating machines.

How is RFID sensing used in Logistics?

RFID sensing help minimize assembly line downtime, track supplies fill ratio, and generate alerts for replenishment.


Passive weight scale use RFID strain sensors to monitor supplies level. They are particularly well adapted to small objects (nuts, bolts, screws, nails) and liquids (paint, oil,…).
