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
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.
