Stockare has always had a very proactive and strong R+D+i department, ready to bring new ideas in, and today we are going to talk about: Battery Assisted Passive UHF RFID tag for Cold Chain Monitoring.
New products, technologies and innovation are entering the market every day, and keeping an eye on them is essential if we are going to bring our Vision to a reality: "to be known as an innovative company capable of bringing disruptive technologies to apply them on the market"
In this case, we carried out the UHF RFID Temperature sensoring project developed by an intership program in collaboration with the Telecomunication department of EHU-UPV, University of the Basque Country.
The aim of the project was to develop a complete UHF RFID Temperature sensoring system, using Stockare KF500 Fixed RFID Reader and a special UHF RFID temperature logger, commercialized by another young yet successful RFID sensoring start-up from San Sebastian, FARSENS "Endless opportunities", which for us has been an example to follow. Logos-T was the temperature logger used for this project, in order to be applied to the cold-chain and supply chain process, due to its durability and low cost. After concluding the testing period by heating and cooling the sensor, it logged the registration of the temperature and time stamp in the system. Wooooow! It was working!
These kind of projects push our knowledge forward and we realize that even the RFID is a very old technology, recently new ways to jump from identification to sensorization are emerging in the market, opening the doors for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
