MENTORSEAL – Active RFID seal for containers
MENTORSEAL is an active RFID seal that operates on a double frequency 433 MHz -2.45 GHz. It is an innovative seal that combines the high security of an ISO 17712:2013 approved seal, with the ability to automatically identify the container or vehicle to which it is applied whilst be able to store and communicate data relevant to the seal over the course of its use.
The main security function of the seal is integrated with the possibility to optimize the traceability of the container’s logistics operations. Thanks to the presence of active RFID, the seal can communicate over significant distances (e.g. over 15m).
Some of the main innovative features of MENTORSEAL are:
- Guaranteed uniqueness of the coupling between the head of the seal with the pin and barrel;
- Timestamp of when the seal is “born” stored in the memory;
- Timestamp of when the seal is closed stored in the memory;
- Timestamp of the opening /or tampering of the seal stored in the memory.
MENTORSEAL can be read with static gateway readers or compatible handheld readers. Data received by the MENTORSEAL taken during a reading can be downloaded onto the server in off-line mode or via Wifi or GPRS. If a static reader is used the reader can be interfaced to a PC via an ethernet line. The relevant communication protocols are supplied to easily integrate the mentorseal with existing IT systems.
