CS8300 Cold Chain Temperature Alert Tag

The high costs of existing temperature monitoring tags make deployment down to the carton-level economically difficult. The CS8300 provides a low-cost threshold alarm and time stamp solution for cold chain monitoring applications that will enable affordable options for users. In addition, the CS8300 slim profile and light weight are beneficial for cold chain tracking at the carton and item level. The CS8300 gives longer read range, longer battery life, and lower unit cost than other RFID temperature tracking tags. Moreover, CS8300 is fully EPC Class 3 Gen 2 compliant and can be read by any Gen 2 compliant reader.
