Original Press Release:

Battery Free Orientation Tag

Correct orientation of items or machinery can now be monitored through the Kineo1 passive sensor tag

The Kineo1 from Farsens S.L., San Sebastián, Spain, is a battery free RFID sensor tag capable of transmitting a unique identifier and the associated orientation data to a commercial EPC C1G2 reader without the need of a battery on the sensor tag. The Kineo1 tags can communicate to around 1.5 meters (5 feet) and, as they transmit through materials such as plastics or concrete, they can be embedded in hardly accessible locations. These battery free sensor tags provide 3-axis acceleration data with an ODR of 10Hz. The tag comes in a variety of antenna designs and sizes to adapt the performance to the required application. Evaluation kits are available.

The main advantage of the product lies on the possibility of using the sensor without batteries at all. This feature allows for a wide range of opportunities using orientation sensors in applications where the accessibility is restricted, or where the use of batteries is not recommended. The Kineo1 will never require a battery change, saving the costs associated to maintenance.

The Kineo1 monitors the correct orientation of user’s key/high value assets. An application in which “This side up” is important for the performance or integrity of the asset, such as logistics of fragile products or devices, the passive RFID accelerometer is a perfect solution.  It will allow supply chain managers identify process/logistics losses due to incorrect item handling.

Farsens designs and manufactures full passive RFID sensor solutions. Their proprietary UHF RFID IC allows Farsens to develop long range solutions for asset tracking – via the unique ID – and monitoring – via the attached sensor – without the need of any battery on the tag.
