WHAT IS RFID?

RFID is an acronym for “radio-frequency identification” and refers to a technology whereby digital data encoded in RFID tags or smart labels (defined below) are captured by a reader via radio waves. RFID is similar to barcoding in that data from a tag or label are captured by a device that stores the data in a database. RFID, however, has several advantages over systems that use barcode asset tracking software. The most notable is that RFID tag data can be read outside the line-of-sight, whereas barcodes must be aligned with an optical scanner. 

WHY IMPLEMENT RFID?

• Ease of product identification

• Speed of reading

• Long read range

• No need line of sight

• Allows multiple readings

• Unique ID, no duplicate ID

• Durable

 

RFID Technology converts items identities into usable data through an interface to a host computer system. The data will be stored in a database and analysed at a later time by the businesses.
