The RT0005 RFID Temperature Data Logger by CAEN RFID is a low cost, semi-passive UHF Logger tag that allows to monitor temperature sensitive products like perishable foods and pharmaceuticals, during transportation and storage. The high resolution sensor, the large memory size and the standard RFID interface makes it an effective way to track and trace solutions for the cold-chain.

The temperature RFID tag can be configured to store samples in intervals from 1 second to 18 hours in the internal memory that can contain up to 3,958 samples. The user can define up to 16 temperature ranges with independent threshold alarms for a very accurate control of the temperature excursions. The tag can be started either using a button or via standard RFID commands.

The tag is also able to calculate the Mean Kinetic Temperature and user configurable remaining shelf life time as well as generate alarms in case these parameters exceeded user defined thresholds.

The RT0005 RFID logger can be used for multiple shipments thanks to the long battery life and the reset function thus allowing to reduce the total cost of the solution and anticipate the ROI.

An external probe model (RT0005ET) is also available for purchase. This model makes it possible to measure temperature even inside a shielded box where the RFID field cannot get through.
