The 433 MHz M131 Thin Tag is a battery-powered RF transmitter
that attaches to items that need to be tracked, located and identified.
Every tag broadcasts its unique ID and a status message at a periodic
rate (that is programmed at the factory). With their low profile
and rounded edges, M131 Thin Tags are specifically designed for
tracking IT equipment and shareable resources such as handheld
and laptop computers that slide into carrying cases and frequently
move between different locations.
The M131 tag’s adhesive backing allows for easy installation
and helps prevent tampering or removal of the tag. M131 Thin Tags
are designed to be used for the entire lifespan of a single asset.
Simply peel the adhesive backing off of the tag, apply the tag
to an asset, and you’re done. RF Code’s patented communication
protocols allow for very high tag densities. Large populations
of tags can be deployed in highly scalable asset tracking environments.
M131 tags are programmed to operate at 2.5-second beacon rates,
and can be customized to support an integrated tamper detection
sensor. Once applied, if the M131 is removed from the asset it
will broadcast a tamper detected signal, enabling you to react
Tag cases are impact resistant, splash resistant and temperature
stable. Read ranges up to 150 feetare typical. The standard tag
operates with a very low duty cycle that translates to long battery
life (typically > 3 years at a 2.5-second beacon rate). Based
on the ratings and specifications from the battery manufacturers,
RF Code develops usage models to calculate the life of the active
RFID Tags. Like all models, there are assumptions and approximations
involved. The values are to be taken as engineering estimates
- not guaranteed performance. Exposure to extreme temperatures
will shorten the battery life. RF Code warrants all tags to be
free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of
