Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) enables automatic identification of products and shipping containers in industrial manufacture, logistics and trade. Our systems will create, print and automatically apply RFID tags. The tags comprise an RFID transponder – a microchip with memory to store, edit and delete data and an antenna. RFID readers will read and decode the data.
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. This means remote identification by radio frequency. The technology is used by send-receive systems that can automatically and remotely identify or localise objects and living beings. These RFID systems are used in a diversity of fields – in logistics, for instance.
Every RFID system comprises an electronic data carrier (RFID label) and a reader (RFID reader). Both components have an antenna for communication of data. Data is communicated via electromagnetic waves.
The reader generates an AC electromagnetic field. Two-way communication takes place should the transponder be located within range. The reader can now write data to the chip or read data in memory.
RFID applications are many and varied. The technology is fundamentally suited for automatic marking, identification, registration, storage and monitoring of components or shipping containers. A few examples:
