R114-i IR-Enabled IT Asset Tag


R114-i IR-Enabled Tags are equipped with on-board infrared (IR) sensors. These tags are designed to be deployed in concert with RF Codeís A740 Rack Locators and A750 Room Locators. IR-enabled tags monitor their environment for incoming IR signals and periodically report both their own unique ID and IR location codes. Tagged assets can be rapidly located with rack-level or room-level precision. The R114-i enclosure is injection-molded using an IR-transparent material with an integrated optic lens that synchronizes the tag with the nearest IR transmitter. Since the location is determined via the IR code, there is no need for redundant readers, signal strength calculations or triangulation algorithms.

Designed for flexible mounting scenarios, the R114-i battery-powered 433 MHz RF transmitter attaches to assets such as blade servers and tower equipment. The R114-iís form factor works as a complement to R104-i IT Asset Tags and these tags are perfect for use in mixed-equipment deployments.


These affordable tags feature both an industrial-strength adhesive backing and circular mounting holes (for zip-tie lanyard loop or hardware mount), providing for quick and easy installation in a variety of scenarios. The R114-iís form factor ensures clear signal transmission in high-density rack and data center deployments. Every tag broadcasts its unique ID and IR location using RF Codeís patented communication protocol, allowing for very high tag densities and ensuring accurate real-time collection of asset inventory and location data.

Powered by a coin cell battery, the R114-i tag will perform reliably in extreme temperature environments (from -20 to +70 degrees Celsius). In addition, the tag performs well after exposure to humidity and hot / cold cycles. R114-i tag cases are impact resistant and temperature stable. The R114-i tag operates with a very low duty cycle that translates to long battery life (typically > 5 years). These tags provide an economical solution for a variety of asset tracking environments. 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. In most deployment scenarios, IR-enabled tags with a have a useful life that exceeds 5 years. 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 1 year.
