Farsens offers RFID and Bluetooth sensor solutions for all industries

Spanish sensor specialist Farsens specialises in proprietary RFID and BLE sensor solutions for numerous applications. The company's ICs are able to supply and communicate with external components. Farsens' product portfolio also includes battery-free RFID sensors and actuators of all types: temperature, pressure, force, LED, relay, switch monitor, and much more. In addition, they also offer battery-assisted Bluetooth sensors. Mario Rey, Commercial Director, Farsens, reports about possible application areas in predictive maintenance, condition monitoring, or temperature control. He gives insights into current projects in healthcare and agriculture.

Full control over configurability of RFID ICs and sensors

The company develops and produces its RFID ICs in-house, giving Farsens full control over the configurability in the development of battery-free sensors, actuators, and other external devices. “Our Rocky100 RFID tag ICs offer a power output to supply external devices with a configurable low-dopout regulator from 1.2 Volt to 3 Volt. Via an SPI port end users can select between a Master and a Slave SPI depending on their specific design. The IC either works in full passive or battery-assisted passive mode. Customers can control battery life with an integrated battery switch. Based on its ICs, the company focuses on three main product lines: battery-free RFID sensors, battery-assisted passive sensors, and Bluetooth sensors for application areas such as predictive maintenance in industry, condition monitoring in agriculture and healthcare, or cold chain management,” Mario González del Rey, Commercial Director, Farsens, explains.

Additional information on identity, location, status, and condition

The passive RFID sensor portfolio is of special interest for users who want to extend their pre-existing RFID tracking system. “For example, numerous hospitals already track their assets via an identification solution such as RFID. Some wish to extend their RFID solution with condition monitoring for temperature-sensitive assets such as blood and plasma bags. In this case, our passive RFID sensors give status reports on condition and temperature history of the tracked items. Due to the configurability of our products, they can be modified to be comparable to the customer's firmware, including readers, handhelds, and antennas. Hence, customers do not need to install a second infrastructure or replace their hardware. Ultimately, the sensor extension provides additional information regarding identity, location, status, and condition of the asset,” Mario González del Rey states.

Hence, customers do not need to install a second infrastructure or replace their hardware. Ultimately, our sensors provide additional information regarding identity, location, status, and condition of the asset.” Mario González del Rey, Commercial Director, Farsens

Optimisation of agricultural irrigation systems via sensor technology

In another, US-based project, Farsens supplies humidity and temperature sensors for condition monitoring in agriculture. Mario González del Rey explains: “Colorado and California execute strict irrigation regulations in agriculture, due to the danger of droughts. Thus, farmers need to optimise their irrigation system. We provide our customers with battery-free sensors to monitor the moisture and temperature level of the soil in both greenhouses and open fields. In the greenhouses, parameters can be checked via handheld while the sensors deployed in the open field are monitored via drones. As a company, we try to offer our customers configurable, specialised, and customised sensor solutions for all areas of applications, tailored to their needs.”
