RFID > RFID Tags > Active

Active RFID tags have their own internal power source and continually transmit a signal, or beacon, usually at a set time interval so as to optimise power. They generally have bigger memories than both passive and semi-active tags and the read ranges achievable are typically much larger also, with up to 100m ranges possible in many cases. Active tags are typically found in enclosed housings and come in a range of different sizes and designs to suit many different applications. While the lifetime of each tag is dependent on the time interval of the signal, it is possible to achieve a battery life of between 5 and 10 years.
