RFID Identification Solutions That Matches Your Needs
What is RFID?
Radio-frequency identification Device commonly known as RFID is a wireless non-contact system. It is generally use for automatic identification and tracking purposes.
An RFID system comprises a reader, its antenna and tags (there is also a build in antenna inside the tag) that carry the data. The reader and tag uses radio frequency to transfer data through vie their respective antenna to transfer data. The data received by the reader is then sent to a controlling computer for processing and management.
Unlike a bar code, RFID tag does not need to be within line of sight of the reader and may be embedded in the tracked object.
Type of RIFD
RFID can be group into three general varieties, namely Active, Passive and Semi-passive (also known as Semi-active or battery-assisted). Active Tags use a local power source such as battery and emit radio waves. Passive tags require no battery and are powered by the electromagnetic fields used to read them. Semi-passive also containing a battery that operates the circuitry inside the tag, but must draw power from the magnetic field created by the reader in order to communicate with the reader via radio frequency.
There are four commonly used frequency bands for RFID applications. They are: low frequency (125 kHz), high frequency (13.56 MHz), UHF tags (868 to 956 MHz), and microwave (2.45 GHz or 5.8 GHz).
RFID are used in many industries. An RFID tag attached to an automobile during production can be used to track its progress through the assembly line. Physical stock in a warehouse can be tracked through warehouses. Livestock and pets may have tags injected, allowing positive identification of the animal.
