Tags and Readers – Data Capture Hardware

Savi tags and readers deliver real-time, accurate data, giving logisticians the visibility they need to make quick, informed decisions to ensure just-in-time delivery of the right parts at the right place.

Undeniably Impartial

Cellular, Satellite and Hybrid Active RFID

Minimum logistical footprint and backward compatibility with Active RFID across air, sea, rail and truck.

Fixed and Mobile Tracking

Active RFID tags and readers capture data at fixed, physical locations while communications-capable sensors, such as Savi IoT, collect and send real-time data from anywhere.

Fast Deployment
First, upload the device file and mount the sensor. Pair the sensor to a shipment in Savi Visibility. You’re now set to receive real-time information on shipment status and location.

Savi Tags

Savi tags are built to provide effective and accurate real-time information on the location, condition and security status of assets and shipments. Organizations around the world rely on our tags, (also known as sensors) to ensure critical shipments reach their destination. Today, Savi tags track hundreds of thousands of shipments per year in more than 50 countries across the globe. Our sensors support active RFID, mobile and satellite communications.

The Savi Locate™ for Global, Multi-modal shipments allows unparalleled reach—4G, 3G, and 2G cellular network coverage. Interior sensitive and accurate antennas use enhanced GPS technology to keep tabs on your cargo from outside or inside most shipping containers. When GPS satellites are not in view, cell tower triangulation can provide an approximate location. Sensors report in from anywhere around the globe where a cellular network exists.

The Savi Locate™ sensor is an affordable, high-performance tracking device integrated with Savi Visibility software to enable a comprehensive view of assets in transit or in theater. Savi Locate’s rugged encasement allows it to be reused many times over if desired. And when return logistics are not an option, the low cost allows it to be economically feasible as a single-use device.

Savi Secure™ sensors continuously monitor the shipment environment and instantaneously send alerts to Savi Visibility™ when exceptions to pre-defined threshold conditions occur—whether location, time, geozone, motion, stoppage or any other event combinations. All Savi Secure Parent Long Life sensors have a battery life of up to 60 days at fifteen-minute reporting intervals. Parent sensors may be used alone for anti-tampering purposes or used in conjunction with up to twenty-four Savi Secure Child sensors.

The Savi IoT™ (Interrogator or Transponder) Sensor is essential for tracking and protecting high-value assets throughout global military and civilian supply chains. For maximum real-time supply chain visibility, cellular transmission capabilities complement existing Active RFID support. This high-performance, long-life sensor is integrated with Savi Visibility software to enable a comprehensive view of stationary or in-transit assets.

Savi Readers

Fixed and Mobile Readers Savi provides a wide range of fixed Active RFID readers and hybrid mobile devices that are backward compatible with aRFID tags. Fixed readers track items moving through gates and chokepoints or monitor assets within warehouses and yards.  On-the-ground personnel connect Savi Mobile readers, (SMRs) with mobile devices and laptops to capture operational field events, such as attaching a tag to an asset, shipping an asset or consolidating a shipment.

Portable Deployment Kits

Fast and Flexible Implementation The Savi Portable Deployment Kit (PDK I) and a lighter version, the Savi PDK II are used for tracking assets on the go,  such as during military deployment. A hardened transit case protects equipment water, shock and vibrational damage. All PDKs are operational out of the box, with a laptop or mobile device. Mobile reader, pinter, software, and communications equipment included.
