The TVP2 "In Line" Performance Test Tag should be specified in safety critical installations where the continued operation of the reader must to be monitored. Once adjusted the unit provides continual feedback on the status of the reader antenna being monitored. Any reduction in reading range, or probability of detection, is flagged by the internal relay changing state and the LED indicators on the front of the unit. The unit is designed to operate with all Cyphertag aerial units. The RVx reader can address several aerials, each of which must have a TVP2 to monitor each detection field.

The reader checks that each test tag/aerial combination is functioning correctly. If either the test tag or the reader is compromised, an alarm relay will operate. The reader can also generate an alarm report via the Wiegand or Serial output port. The TVP2 test tag can be used with all RVx and RVRx type readers such as the RVR1-(4-2) which have multiple loop aerials. The TVP2 cannot be used with the split transmit and receive version. This unit must be monitored using TVP1 units.
