“The Proxima RF mobile sensing product suite will extend our product line by offering our clients leading edge technology to protect food safety.”

ProximaRF Technology Corporation announced today that it has formed a distribution agreement with Meridius Inc. of Henderson. NV. Meridius will make the Proxima RF line of passive energy harvesting temperature sensors and dataloggers available to it customers in the food and cold chain industry.

Proxima RF’s combination of wireless sensing technology with HF radio frequency identification (RFID) delivers affordable, versatile and easy to implement cold chain, industrial and pharmaceutical passive sensing and data logging solutions. The passive sensors harvest energy from the high frequency RF field and require no battery. As a result, the temperature sensors can be embedded in cold chain containers and boxes to be read with a handheld device operating the Meridius mobile ProSAFE software. By adding a battery, the sensor becomes a data logger for those applications that require continual temperature data points.

“Meridius provides mobile and server based safety monitoring software to major restaurant chains, food distributors and manufacturers. Using our integrated mobile forms for safety and inspection helps our clients improve quality, minimize risks and save hundreds of thousands of dollars per year,” said Mike Whitmire, Vice President of Meridius. He went on to say, “The Proxima RF mobile sensing product suite will extend our product line by offering our clients leading edge technology to protect food safety.”

Terry Rachwalski, Vice-President of Business Development for Proxima RF replied, “Meridius is highly experienced in safety and risk management. We look forward to working with such a knowledgeable systems integrator, knowing that our products will be represented and deployed with the highest standards.” Proxima RF’s sensing technology leverages 13.56MHz RFID enabled sensor transponders with on-board antenna and temperature sensors. HF RFID enabled sensors are perfect for applications where the security and accuracy of proximity reading is required or where the water content from food stuffs, produce and beverages would interfere with UHF emissions. The technology reduces the need for costly real time wireless motes.
