TMxxxx Active Tag
TM and RC system components are an intelligent, „Radio Frequency“ based System. It consists of the
TM-Tag, a battery powered transmitter and a
small and mobile controller and reader FSK-C™.
tags starts with the size of an Euro coin and a reading distance of 10
to 20 meters and ends with a tag size of a half post card with a reading
range of up to 500 meters.
has a microcontroller and non-volatile memory on board and controls a
bidirectional communication unit with up to 4096 transmitter and receiver
channels. With these unique features the RC/TM series is suitable for many
reason to keep the battery life of the
for years the tag is in a stand-by or sleeping mode when he is not in use. In the
stand-by mode the Tag is quite and did not send a signal but he is
always in the receiving mode, listening for a wake up signal from a
controller RCxxxx. The controller sends periodically a signal for checking if
a TM active tag is in his environment. As soon as a TM tag is in the zone of the
RC controller the Tag will be waked up. The RC sends his identity to the
TM and tells his function. Such functions can be in
applications as access control, object identification, temperatur
control, smoke sensor, anti-theft control, parking, logistics, road
pricing and many many others. The TM tag validates if he is programmed
for this application.
If he does, the he sends its identification number (UID)
to the controller. The controller RC examines the validity of the UID and forwards
the request to a superordinate system, in most cases a PC. Depending
upon application it might be necessary to confirm an action, e.g. to
switch of a device or the purchase of goods. This confirmation can be
done by pressing a switch on the TMxxxx.
Features of the TMxxxx™
The life span of a TM tag is individual and determined
by many factors caused by the application. The TM tag has an internal
battery control circuit that does inform the owner either at the place
of work or via SMS when the battery voltage is dropping below a certain
Depending on environment and settings the radius of a
TM is between 0.3 and 500 meters.
The TM tag is fully programmable for up to 256
applications and includes secure encryption.
The TM tag is available with different housings and sizes.
Customer designed outlines are feasible upon request.
