Evigia Develops Disposable Tamper-proof Electronic Container Seal

Evigia Systems, with partial funding provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, is contributing innovative sensor technology and expertise to the development of a disposable tamper-proof electronic bolt seal for use in securing and tracking maritime and intermodal containers in storage and transit.

The patent-pending disposable bolt seal provides shippers with electronic records and real-time alerts in compliance with ISO 17712:2013 standards for classification, acceptance, and withdrawal of mechanical seals used on freight containers in international commerce.

The easy-to-use electronic bolt seal minimizes the cost and complexity of conforming to ISO standards for installation and inspection. It also comes in a reusable version. The seal employs multiple measures to become tamper-proof:

  1. it detects, records, and reports breach attempts;
  2. it cannot be disassembled or reassembled without inspection; and
  3. it cannot be replaced by a duplicate or mimicked.

The seal prototype, with an accompanying mobile phone app, works with integrated near-field communication (NFC) as well as Bluetooth technology.

Evigia Introduces EVX1000 Products for Asset Visibility in IoT Supply Chains

The Internet of Things (IoT) has an innovative new set of tools for remotely sensing conditions and tracking critical assets with accuracy, reliability, and cost-efficiency.

Evigia Systems has introduced the new EVX1000 family of low-power, high-performance asset tags and network gateways for use in the most demanding field applications. These ruggedized, long-battery-life sensor devices can be used to create complete, automated wireless sensing and tracking systems to run over wide-area networks with 10,000 or more feet between hops.

The EVX1000 Series self-configurable devices operate fully untethered, without cables, while providing global network coverage. The devices’ intelligent power management technology extends battery life in the field to 10 or even 20 years without replacement.

Special materials, packaging, and coatings ensure the EVX1000 devices’ reliable operation in extreme conditions ranging from extreme heat to Arctic cold. The devices are also certified to IP67 standards for protection against dust and immersion in water for up to 30 minutes.

Products in the EVX1000 family include the:

  • EVX1001 Asset Tag
  • EVX1002 GPS Tag
  • EVX1100 Satellite Tag and Cloud Gateway
  • EVX1150 Cellular Tag and Cloud Gateway
  • EVX1210 WiFi Gateway
