RF Code

RF Code provides wire-free environmental and power monitoring and real-time IT asset tracking solutions that significantly reduce the time and cost of discovering, tracking, and monitoring IT assets and the environments in which they’re located—across the enterprise and down to the rack level. Built on open technology, RF Code solutions can be used alone or integrated easily into a customer’s existing DCIM, BMS, ERP, EAM or other software platform. This open approach enables data centers, IT, facilities, and building professionals, among others, to easily consume the asset and environmental data RF Code captures.

Based on award-winning active RFID technology, solutions consist of  active hardware (tags, sensors and readers) and software that manages the real-time asset and environmental data captured by the hardware. Because RF Code offers the most affordable, easiest to deploy solutions, customers get immediate value. Moreover, solutions require no cabling or wiring: they are virtually wire-free, so all expenses related to installing and maintaining wires are eliminated. Consequently, there are no barriers to installing asset tracking and environmental instrumentation wherever and whenever it’s needed. ROI is typically one year.
