Montreal, November 5, 2013HARTING has given its new VT92 transponder for North America a read range up to five metres by adjusting the antenna structure to pitch to 920 MHz.

Passive UHF RFID operates globally from 866 to 930 MHz, but within this range there are target frequencies based on the location of the user.

For Europe, it is typically 866 to 868 MHz and for North America and Asia it is 905 to 930 MHz; tags designed to transmit the same way globally sacrifice read range by not targeting a particular regional frequency. By pitching to the North American frequency, the VT92 nearly doubles the usual read range for tags on metal read by a stationary reader.

Suitable for virtually any RFID applications, the VT92 is small for such an efficient transponder, with an IP69K housing that ensure consistently reliable operations in -65° to 210°C (-85° to 410° F) storage temperatures. That high heat resistance makes it autoclavable – ideal for medical sterilization applications, like instrument and other trays used in hospitals and research facilities. Its versatility makes the VT92 an excellent choice in large-scale deployments in such fields as transportation and logistics, factory automation and machinery, like the paint shop in car manufacturing plants.
