Tag to Tag™ Communication
Tag to Tag™ communication technology is RFind’s patented solution to affordable and accurate RTLS. Download the various tag specification sheets from the list in the right hand side of this page (each will open in a new tab).
Reference tags used as fixed points eliminate costly reader infrastructures, which involve extensive cabling, power and multiple devices in conventional RTLS. By using Reference tags to talk to Asset tags, either to provide trilateration location finding, or simpler point to point location tracking, the installation time and equipment costs are significantly reduced, resulting in a faster ROI.Reference tags also come in various specialized models, such as Transit Reference tags and Gatepost tags.
RTLS Asset Tags
These tags are the key components of Tag to Tag™ communication technology, RFind’s solution to affordable and accurate Real-Time Locating, providing precise x, y location reporting in critical asset management solutions. With Asset tags talking to other tags used as fixed points (the Reference tags), the installation time and equipment costs are significantly reduced, resulting in a faster ROI. Extending or moving the system to new areas is as easy as adding or moving Reference tags.
RFID Asset Tags
These tags are the key components of RFind’s RFID enabled Asset Presence Detection System and are ideal for applications that don’t require the accuracy of a full RTLS system: when only presence detection, but not exact x, y location reporting is required. This system has two hardware elements: Presence Detection Asset Tags and a Gateway device(s).
RFind has the capability to design custom tags for specific customer needs. The same tag hardware platform is used, meaning that we can quickly produce a tag with the shape and functionality required. Casings to suit the asset, environment and required protection (IP) levels can be easily obtained off-the-shelf or be specially designed.
RFind has produced custom RTLS & RFID asset tags for diverse uses for our clients, from OEM tags built into restaurant service-request pagers, to smaller sized tags that can be fitted to a variety of assets, to the Actuator tag which provides a multi-functional wireless device to extend the RTLS to perform useful, non-location functions, such as line replenishment requests and other user- or switch-initiated functions.
A small asset tag is now available from RFind on request. The standard housing used measures 77.5mm x 47.5mm x 20mm (3.05″ x 1.87″ x 0.79″). See the picture below for examples of the appearance of this small asset tag.
