Jovix in Extreme Temperatures

Extreme Temperatures
Example: Project is located in Northern Alberta, where -40° is common. Battery performance is impacted significantly by extreme hot and cold temperatures.Barcode, Active & Passive – Both active and passive work down to -40°C, while barcodes have no limitation. The challenge lies with mobile readers operating only to -20°C in most cases. We mitigate that by using Vehicle-Mounted Reader sweeps and limiting reader exposure when temps hit -40°C, allowing the readers to be used for short durations during Find once they are close to the material, based on GPS locations.
Jovix Barcoding and RFID
Outdoor Storage
Example: Project requires tracking spools in an outdoor laydown yard.Active – Combination of read range and isotropic RF pattern makes active RFID an optimal solution Passive – Tag orientation is crucial, but this can be a great solution. Barcode – Possible solution, depending on future movements of material
Jovix Barcoding and RFID
Indoor Storage
Example: Project requires tracking tagged valves inside a warehouse. Must read all tags in a bin without reading all of the tags in the warehouse.Barcode – Requires deliberate scan of each item Active – While there is a large read range on active tags, the Jovix tags have a built-in passive tag. Passive – A variety of passive tags exist, and read range can be optimized for a specific deployment scenario.
Jovix Barcoding and RFID
Outside North America
Example: Project is outside of North America. Not all auto-ID technologies are accepted in all countries. Barcode & Passive – 
  • No inherent limitation
  • Widely accepted international standards
Active – Standards just beginning to emerge
Jovix Barcoding and RFID
Supplier Onboarding
Example: Project requires the auto-ID tag to be applied at the supplier.Active – Provides a durable tag, able to withstand exposure to elements, vibration, shock, crushing, and much moreBarcode & Passive – Possible options, depending on project scope
Jovix Barcoding and RFID
Long-Distance Transfers
Example: Project requires tracking materials over long distances. Tags are exposed to vibration and shock during transit.Barcode & Passive – No inherent limitations Active – Jovix active tags (P400) are built to withstand harsh journeys from supplier to jobsite and are MIL Standard rated to withstand significant shock and vibration.
Jovix Barcoding and RFID
In-Transit Locating
Example: Project requires real-time, off-site location information. It is not feasible to have infrastructure all over the world.Active – Fixed readers can be used to identify location at choke points but cannot provide location updates in between. Barcode & Passive – Not a viable option
