An internal battery powers the Wavetrend L-series of Active Tags. The Personnel Tag will, for the duration of its life, transmit a Radio Frequency (RF) signal at a pre-set time-interval. The Tag life is estimated at 5 years at a transmission time interval of approximately 1.5 seconds. The lifespan of the Tag ends when the battery life is exhausted. Battery status can be inferred by interrogating the internal Tag Age Counter Value.
The transmitted Tag data includes Customer Site Code (CSC), Tag ID, Tag Age Counter Value, Movement Alarm and Tamper Alarm status.
For protection against adverse environmental conditions, Wavetrend Tags are encapsulated in a moulded ABS plastic case, which is ultrasonically sealed during the manufacturing process.
The Tag can be configured to accommodate Wiegand interfacing.
The Tag has an anti-tamper status that is set whenever the tag is tampered with. This status is not re-settable.
The Tag has an auto wake function. When it is secured with the anti-tamper kit it will automatically ‘wake-up’ after 5 minutes and start transmitting its pre-configured data.
The Tag is generally used for personnel tagging, although it may be used in other applications such as asset monitoring. The mounting and affixing of a Tag depends on the type of application. Wavetrend Tags can be mounted on a variety of items. Where permanent fixing is required VHB double-sided tape is used (Product number L-TA200), otherwise, the tags may be worn on a necklace or clipped to clothing.
