AT5414 Transportation Tag
The AT5414 Transportation Tag is a dual-frequency, battery-powered field disturbance device used in applications requiring long-range operation. The tag is ideal for use with TransCore Amtech-brand and TransCore Encompass multiprotocol reader systems. It is packaged in a factory-sealed case, which makes this tag ideal for mounting on vehicle chassis, intermodal containers, or in any environment requiring a durable, weatherproof tag.
The tag can be factory-programmed, as specified by the customer, or user-programmed in the field using TransCore’s new AP4600 Multifunction Tag Programmer, and can store up to 10 six-bit alphanumeric characters of data (60 bits) compatible with previous ATA/AAR read-only readers.
The tag’s mutual authentication feature, in conjunction with TransCore Encompass readers, uses hardware-based protection that is more difficult to compromise than software-only protection. Mutual authentication prevents unwanted data from being written to the tag’s protected memory space.
Two small lithium batteries energize the AT5414 Transportation Tag. The batteries are compliant with U.S. DOT 49 CFR § 173.185(c) regulations for unrestricted shipment. Consult local agencies for regulations if the tag is to be shipped outside the United States. With continuous use, the average useful tag life is 8 years. The number of tag reads and external RF fields from other sources do not affect battery life. The AT5414 Transportation Tag’s integral battery power improves its responsiveness, permitting reliable performance at extended range.
