Savi Introduces New Active RFID Tag
The new low-profile version of the company's active tag separates RFID components to protect the delicate electronics.Savi Technology, which develops RFID hardware and software for supply chains, is tackling harsh conditions with its latest active tag. Washington, D.C.-based Savi announced March 7 the low-profile version of its Savi Tag ST-656 that is actually split between the outside of a container and the inside to protect the more delicate RFID electronics. The ST-656s U-shaped form factor has a low profile, or flat plate, that sits on the outside of a container. The tag is armed with an antenna that communicates with readers (both fixed and mobile) and a beeper that lets personnel know where the tag is, and reports its status.
The relative flatness of the plate, clamped to the left door of a container, helps keep it protected in rugged environments, officials said.
