RFID Journal Selects Phase IV Products as 2016 Finalists

Phase IV Engineering is proud to announce that we were honored twice by the RFID Journal in 2016.

New Product of the Year 2016 –

Phase IV’s Innovative Patent-Pending RFID Sensor Reader that is optimized for reading sensors and interfacing with a wide variety of machine and cloud interfaces.

Most Innovative RFID Product of the Year 2016 & Most Innovative Use of RFID Nomination –

The article below highlights Phase IV’s work with deploying the ultra-thin RFID temperature data logger. The RFID Journal also nominated the Micro-T Data Logger “Most Innovative Use of RFID” in 2016. Read the article below for details on how Reichhold helps a fiberglass pipe manufacturer improve production, saving time and money.

Reichhold worked with Phase IV Engineering to develop a solution that can pinpoint exactly when the snap cure of the resin occurs—as indicated by a temperature rise in the composites being cured. Phase IV’s RFID-enabled Micro-T Data Logger captures the temperature of pipes as they cure in the customer’s ovens. With that information, production managers can choose to either shut down portions of the oven farther down the line from where the resin curing takes place, in order to save energy, or speed up the line to use the full length of the oven in less time. Betts and his team are working with the customer to fine-tune the manufacturing process.

“For the first time ever, the Micro-T has enabled the engineers that are trying to dial in these fiberglass processes to get very, very accurate temperature readings of the fiberglass assembly while it’s curing,” says Scott Dalgleish, Phase IV Engineering’s CEO. That enables the pipe manufacturer to save time and energy during the production process.

New Developments in Passive RFID Sensing – Energy Harvesting Circuits for Longer Range and Better Sensing

UHF is the latest evolution in RFID technology offering longer read range and enabling new types of sensing applications.  As capable as UHF RFID is, passive sensing tags still must operate all of their circuitry by capturing RF energy transmitted from the reader.   As RFID systems add more sophisticated sensors, you can run into limitations as some sensors take more energy to operate and the accuracy of certain sensors is dependent on the stability and quality of input power.

One way the RFID sensing industry has addressed these limitations is with Battery-Assisted Passive (BAP) sensors.   BAP sensors provide stability and quality input power to the sensing circuits, and allow the RF communication circuits to be more efficient, often doubling the effective read range over a passive RFID sense tag.  But there are still applications that will not accommodate a battery, so Phase IV has developed novel Energy Harvesting technology that brings many of the capabilities of a BAP sensor tag to a purely passive RFID tag.

Phase IV’s Energy Harvesting circuit captures and stores RF energy for the sensor circuit separately from the antenna circuit, effectively giving the sensor many of the advantages of a battery assist.   Our Energy Harvesting technology effectively doubles the read range of the same purely passive standard tag, and allows more power-sensitive sensors to be used.

The Phase IV Long-Range RFID Passive UHF EPC Pressure and Temperature Sensor is an example of leveraging this technology for industry-leading advantages in purely passive RFID sensing.  Breakthrough Energy Harvesting Technology is just the latest example of how Phase IV, the inventor of RFID Sensing, continues to lead the industry in technical innovation.
