The tags are compatible with commercial EPC C1G2 readers and communicate a unique ID and the associated switch status data without the need of battery supply on the sensor tags. The tag comes in a variety of antenna designs and sizes to adapt the performance to the required application. The reading distance for the battery free pressure sensor tag is around 2.5 meters (8 feet) and it can be embedded in a wide variety of materials such as plastics or concrete. The device features one of three different connectors for users to connect their switch: a 2.00 mm Pitch SIL Latched Vertical Pin Header, a 2.00 mm Pitch Male 1×2 Header or just the 1×2 Header Footprint (pitch 2.00 mm).

The sensor is fully passive to allow for a wide range of opportunities.  The battery free switch sensor is ideal for hard to access or restricted areas and those where the use of batteries is not recommended. Because batteries are not needed, the switch tags will never have to worry about autonomy.

The X1GLADIO is best used in applications where monitoring of open/closed or connected/disconnected components is needed. Often times in electric/electronic installations there is a need to check if wires are correctly connected. Using the X1GLADIO, a single readout with a handheld reader will update the status on your database. There is also the possibility of using multiple switches with a single RFID tag. Evaluation kits are available.
