RFID Asset Tracking


Solar panel tracking - from individual modules to large power generation deployments

Essen RFID’s SOLANNA™ tags provide enhanced read range compared to standard passive UHF tags for similar usage - over 12 feet with hand held readers, under European ETSI standards.

Absolute reliability and accuracy, with superior read rates on solar panels and modules. Meets full data storage guidelines set by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India. One side coated with industrial grade adhesive for good bonding with glass or fibre.

Having an enhanced read range and reduced size, SOLANNA™ tags combine the best of both worlds - tags that can be read at longer distances, but having a smaller footprint. This makes them ideal for:
- Tracking solar panels
- Individual panel identification
- Ensuring adherence to MNRE standards
