At the trade show, Smartrac invites system integrators, converters and end users to discover ‘Solutions for a Smarter Internet of Things,” the motto the company has chosen for its appearance in Phoenix.
First shown at RFID Journal Live! 2017, Proofs is serving as an example for what a smart combination of RFID and IoT technologies can do. By embedding a Proofs-empowered NFC tag into a physical product, customers can now turn their products into a media hub and easily deliver secure and exclusive mobile content to consumers. Moreover, Proofs is a powerful tool to help verify product authenticity and minimize counterfeiting. Leveraging Smartrac’s latest, purpose-built NFC tags, equipped with NXP Semiconductor’s NTAG 413 DNA chip, and its enablement platform Smart Cosmos, Proofs complements the company’s Experiences solution.
Besides Proofs, Smartrac is showcasing its passive RAIN RFID sensor family, such as Sensor Temperature DogBone and Sensor Tadpole, the first-ever passive water sensor tag that works on metal surfaces like the harsh environment of an automobile chassis. The passive temperature-sensing inlay Sensor Temperature DogBone enables gapless temperature monitoring at package or item level, ensuring unbroken cold chains in pharmaceutical and food industries at an affordable price. The sensor family is equipped with the latest RFMicron Magnus chips, to create passive UHF single-chip sensor solutions offering cost-efficiency and hassle-free implementation.
“The Internet of Things is a reality, and our innovative solutions are actively shaping it and actually making it smarter – that is Smartrac’s message at RFID Journal Live! 2017,” said Ted Danhauser, VP sales Americas, at Smartrac.
