    RFMicron devices are fully compatible with the controlling standards known as Gen2.  The reader ICs are also thought to be fully compliant to the Gen2 standard.  However, readers are designed for specific uses and may not expose all of the Gen2 commands in their software.  This means that some reads will not engage with all sensor functions.

    All, or nearly all, readers can access sensor code values and RSSI signal strength values.  Many readers can execute a temperature sensing operation.  A narrower set of readers has access to the full range of Gen2 functionality and can execute a high-precision temperature measurement.

    RFMicron sensors are usually available in FCC and EU/ETSI frequency ranges and can be read by RAIN/UHF compliant readers. RFMicron sensors can be purchased separately or as part of a kit that includes a RAIN/UHF compliant reader. To learn more, click HERE.

    Although RFMicron does not recommend any specific reader, the following table summarizes the readers that have been confirmed to work with RFMicron sensors, up to and including full high-precision temperature access.

    So, does this mean that not all RAIN compliant readers will be able to support reading temperature data from your temperature sensor tags?

    Seth,

    Thank you for contacting RFMicron. Our sensors are compatible with the UHF RFID Gen-2 specification (RAIN-compliant), but due to quirks and variabilities in the firmware of different reader manufacturers, we have found that it’s not safe to just assume any reader will work. If you are planning to use or have any specific reader in mind, RFMicron will be happy to share whatever we may know about it.

    Click HERE to access a list of readers that are compatible with RFMicron sensors.

    Is there a particular application/ need that you can share with us so that we can help you find the right solution? Feel free to contact RFMicron directly by clicking HERE.

    I’m using Impinj R2000 series UHF reader ,  I can get the temperature value with protocol, Why?

    We were not able to get Impinj readers to read the temperature codes due to issues with SELECT commands, but maybe they have updated their firmware since our tests.  What reader model are you using, and what versions of the firmware and Octane API are being used?
