Battery-less RFID sensing tags offer a cost-effective solution for the monitoring of critical infrastructure and assets.
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.
Hundreds of data points can be monitored simultaneously using fixed, handheld, and drone RFID readers.
Xerafy XENSE sensors can be read using any reader complying with RAIN RFID, the global Radio-frequency identification (RFID) standard.
As the de facto standard for industrial applications such as asset location, counting, analysis, monitoring, and tracking, RAIN RFID compatibility ensures seamless interoperability with existing infrastructure deployed in the field, with mobile apps and software available to read the data.
Industrial IOT systems present unique requirements and challenges when it comes to the application environment, material properties, and accessibility, among others.
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.
Sensing features cover a full range of monitoring parameter options:
The Asygn AS321x is the world’s first RAIN RFID fully passive IC that includes a sensing and acquisition interface for both resistive and capacitive sensors.
The chip is fully compliant with the RAIN RFID protocol, so no special sequences or custom commands are required.
RFID temperature sensors are used in Construction to perform real-time, permanent or occasional controls in concrete curing.
The Xerafy XENSE Temp is a rugged RFID sensor tag engineered to operate in harsh environments and withstand heat, moisture, pressure, metal… The sensor is embeddable into the structure with no battery nor maintenance.
Strain sensors help detect changes in civil engineering structures, ground, and buildings. They combine both environmental and structural measurements necessary for infrastructure monitoring.
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.
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,…).
