IoT Applications

An all-in-one scalable solution for the cold chain

How it works

The RFLink solution is an Active RFID gps tracking system that is comprised of small, battery powered RFTags packaged in an IP67 waterproof enclosure.

The RFTags are placed on trailers, containers or any asset to be monitored and a Piccolo Plus with an RFLink module is installed in any truck.

The RFTags communicate via RF at 2.4GHz to the Piccolo Plus Gateway at a radius of up to 250 feet (70m). 

In addition to sending GPS position, driver behavior, and via-the-air engine diagnostics, the Piccolo Plus communicates wirelessly to the RFTags placed on every asset and receives unique tag ID, signal strength, and temperature data.
Each RFTag automatically detects and connects to any number of Piccolo Plus units defined within a system.

The data received from the RF Tags is processed by the Piccolo Plus and routed to the Fleet.Net platform with the date, time and GPS location where the link was established
(which is the pickup and drop off location).

 

The RFTag has a powerful 32bit CPU with a 2.4 GHz IEEE802.15.4 transceiver and is packaged with a small 200mAh or 500mAh rechargeable lithium battery capable of powering the RFTag for up to 24 months.

For cold chain monitoring, an external digital temperature sensor can be added for wireless temperature monitoring.

Product Features

External digital temp sensor: High accuracy of +/- 0.9°F (0.5°C). 

Up to 24 months of continuous operation with an integrated 200mAh or 500mAh rechargeable lithium battery.

Extends battery life to 5 years

For certain applications in which the 210ft (70m) communication range is too powerful, the RFTag communication range can be shortened to 3ft, 6ft, 15ft, 30ft (1m,2m,5m or 10m) as needed.

Designed for harsh working environments, each RFTag is packaged in a robust IP67 rated enclosure.

Can also function as a wireless remote I/O for detecting door open/closed events.
