Low Power Sensing Drives Affordable Cold Chain Monitoring
Cheyenne, WY (PRWEB) March 10, 2010
ProximaRF Technology Corporation and Melexis have partnered to create a unique low power sensing development kit that reads the output of resistive sensors with high frequency (HF) RFID. The combination of low power sensing with HF radio frequency identification (RFID) delivers affordable, versatile and easy to implement cold chain, industrial and pharmaceutical data logging.
The DVK90129 development kit uses the 13.56 MHz RFID enabled Melexis sensor transponder with on board antenna that may be used as an inexpensive data logger by adding a coin size battery or for battery-less embedded sensing. Since the applications would not require costly wireless motes – the kit is perfect for design applications where the security and accuracy of proximity reading is required or where UHF emissions could interfere with sensitive equipment such as in healthcare.
