GAO Offers RFID Position Marker Series

Nov 05, 2008

Toronto, Canada - GAO RFID Inc. ( now provides advanced RFID position markers (GAO 491013 and GAO 491014). The RFID Position Marker series are used to determine exact locations of long-range, semi-passive RFID tags (GAO 137003, GAO 137004).

The Position Marker is typically positioned near the induction loop (antenna) and remains maintenance-free after setting the original parameters. As the tag passes the induction loop connected to the Position Marker, it is �woken up� and identification data from the Position Marker is downloaded onto the tag. Depending on the type of tag, current as well as previous IDs and the relative time of passage over the loop are either repeatedly broadcasted or can be read from the tag by a RFID reader (GAO 227004) at a later time. This intelligent ability to control the inductive field limits enables it to distinguish lanes and recognize directions.

�By taking advantage of semi-passive technology these position markers offer benefits similar to RTLS at a very reasonable cost,� says Dr. Frank Gao, CEO of GAO Group.

Specifications for GAO Position Markers (GAO 491013, GAO 491014):
