The Kineo1 tags can communicate to around 1.5 m and, as they transmit through materials such as plastics or concrete, they can be embedded in hard to access locations. The battery free sensor tags provide 3-axis acceleration data with an ODR of 10 Hz. The tag comes in a variety of antenna designs and sizes to adapt the performance to the required application. Evaluation kits are available.

The main advantage of the sensor tag lies on the possibility of using the sensor without batteries at all. The feature allows for a wide range of opportunities using orientation sensors in applications where the accessibility is restricted, or where the use of batteries is not recommended. The Kineo1 claims to never require a battery change, saving maintenance.

The Kineo1 monitors the correct orientation of user’s key/high value assets. An application in which ‘This side up’ is important for the performance or integrity of the asset, such as logistics of fragile products or devices, the passive RFID accelerometer is a perfect solution.  The tag will allow supply chain managers identify process/logistics losses due to incorrect item handling.
