New from Harting, the Ha-VIS RFID VT 86 (HT) is an RFID transponder that combines robustness, a high protection class and resistance to the effects of high temperatures and chemicals and to achieve optimal performance in difficult environments.
Originally developed to meet the requirements of the aviation industry, the new transponder meets the regulatory requirements for operation in both the EU and the US/ASIA frequency bands (865-868 MHz and 902-928 MHz, respectively), and is therefore qualified for global use.
The transponder is suited to on-site applications in maintenance, repair and operational scenarios in industrial environments. It also meets the increasing need in integrated industrial plants for RFID transponders that are capable of recording and storing extra information: for example, the documentation of the maintenance history of a safety-critical object.
The new unit measures only 41 × 11 × 5.15 mm, incorporates a user memory of up to 3 kbit capacity, and has a range of up to 5 m when mounted on metal. It is EPC Class 1 Gen 2 compatible, and has an operating temperature range of -50°C to +160°C.
