UHF RFID BAP (battery-assisted passive) tags are a type of RFID tag that incorporates a battery to enhance its performance and functionality. BAP tags are typically used for tracking and identifying objects, assets, or inventory. UHF RFID BAP tags provide additional features and capabilities compared to passive RFID tags, which rely solely on energy harvested from the reader’s signal.

Here are some key characteristics:

  • Extended Range: The battery in these tags helps boost the tag’s signal strength. Allowing it to communicate with RFID readers at greater distances compared to passive tags. This extended range can be especially useful in applications that require long-range tracking and monitoring.
  • Improved Read Rates: Tags can offer more consistent and reliable read rates, even in challenging environments with interference or other RF noise.
  • High User Memory: These tags often include significant user memory capacity. The onboard battery allows them to store and process data efficiently.

In our production range of UHF RFID BAP tags, you can find also RFID tags with output power modules. These solutions demonstrate a new way to integrate RFID technology in automation production processes. For example, as modifiable RFID sensors for industry PLCs produced for example by Eaton and others. It is possible to modify the specification of RFID sensors via RFID commands, protected by a password.
