More Needed Maintenance
We're using the CheaperTronics 8 meter RFID transmitters for vehicle tracking. The problem is they are really sensitive to voltage levels and as the 2032 battery output drops, the transmitters start dropping out. The batteries become useless after several months so today I picked up some AAA battery holders from Radio Shack. I soldered the battery holder wires to the transmitter circuit board loaded it up with a couple batteries and rubber banded it to the case. They work great now. We'll see how long the batteries and reliability last.
