A TENANT OF SEZ TECHNOPOLIS MOSCOW DEVELOPES A 3D-TAG FOR DIGITIZING URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE OBJECTS
On the occasion of the 873d anniversary of Moscow, the RFID laboratory of the Mikron company has developed a new 3D-tag “Balchug” for digitizing urban infrastructure objects and small architectural forms. The chip allows to identify objects at a distance of over seven meters during inventory and accounting, it is resistant to mechanical damage and weather conditions, informed Alexander Prokhorov, Head of the Department of investment and industrial policy of Moscow.
“Since 2015, Mikron has been a resident company of the special economic zone Technopolis Moscow and enjoys favorable production and financial conditions offered by the Moscow Government to residents of the special economic zone with a zero rate for property and transport tax, as well as a reduced income tax. This enables production growth and investment in new developments. For example 3D-tags "Balchug", the start of production of which is timed to the birthday of the city. They will help preserve its infrastructure and increase the level of comfort for residents of the capital”, clarified the Head of the Department.
New RFID-tag "Balchug" Micron M-Tag 3D / 1UD is designed for remote identification of small architectural forms, taking into account their operating conditions. The small architectural forms include non-scale auxiliary architectural structures and objects, for example, stairs, fences, sculptures, fountains, gazebos, etc. The tag works properly on plastic, wood, metal and combined surfaces and has a 128-bit EPC memory with an object unique identifier code installed.
“Residents of the special economic zone Technopolis Moscow are actively implementing their own solutions in the development of the capital. And Mikron is one of the main flagships, whose developments Muscovites use every day. These are travel cards, chips for bank cards, electronic passes and much more. The new product of the compant is another important contribution to maintaining and improving the appearance of the beloved city”, shared Gennady Degtev, CEO of SEZ Technopolis Moscow.
“The line of tags meets all requirements for use in urban conditions, including in public places, sports and social infrastructure. “We are pleased to present to Moscow for the 873rd anniversary our development for marking small architectural forms, named after one of the iconic and difficult Moscow places where new marks passed the first “field” tests. Small architectural forms perform important functions in the urban environment, while the modern urban environment requires digital infrastructure. Our new tags are part of this infrastructure, helping to keep a growing fleet of facilities in order, to efficiently maintain them, to optimize costs and save time”, said Vasiliy Volosov, Sales Director of RFID and IT at Mikron.
Check and registration of small architectural forms is carried out using mobile readers with an operating frequency of 865-868 MHz (RFID UHF). A miniature but durable plastic case of the tags measuring 9x2.5x1.5 cm protects them from environmental influences and mechanical damage. It is easy to install and has holes for fastening with bolts, self-tapping screws, rivets, ties or screws, it can also be glued.
