Farsens S.L., San Sebastián, Spain, announces Kineo1, 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. 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 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.
