Automatic Real-Time Inventory
The INGECOM dual-frequency Active-Tag product line is a comprehensive set of products all built with a focus on the user’s requirements for tracking, tracing, streamlining the assets. The user’s cost of ownership is maximized with a typical 10 year battery lifetime for the Active-Tags. All the products are designed and produced in our premises, allowing for the Swiss-Made label to be proudly displayed.
Optimized for the logistics
The overall logistics of the dual-frequency Active-Tags is highly optimized and intrinsically safe. After the individual final production test, the tags are set in deep-sleep operation (zero energy consumption) to prevent any operation during the air-shipment in compliance with IATA requirement to suspend wireless operations before boarding an aircraft. The storage of the dual-frequency Active-Tags is also not deducting any lifetime of its internal battery. When ready for operation, the user swipes the tag over the 13MHz reader to configure the notification interval and the type of operation, read-only or read-write.
Intrinsically safe and Energy efficient
All the focus of the Active-Tag is on the energy efficiency : performing a lot with very few. The very long reading distance, typically over 100m in free space, is achieved with a very minimum output radiated power. The SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) is a measurement of how much electromagnetic radiation is absorbed by body tissue while using a mobile phone. The higher the SAR the more radiation is absorbed. In Europe, the European Union Council has adopted the recommendations made by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP Guidelines 1998). These recommendations set a SAR limit of 2.0 W/kg in 10g of tissue. The Active-Tag limits its radiation to below 0.000009 W/kg, way below any mobile phone.
Compatible with any network
The long range controllers used to read the Active-Tags are ready to operate in compliance with most of the industry standard networks : from RS232, RS485, USB, LAN, WiFi, GPRS, there’s always a controller able to connect with the required environment. Request for specific developments such as CANbus, or MODbus.
Optimized cost of ownership : Fast setup, easy software integration, reliable operation, unprecedented battery lifetime for such a small form factor makes it an ideal long term investment.
