Applications for Active RFID and Passive RFID Technology ...

No comments

RFID technology is divided into three categories - Passive, Semi-passive (also called battery assisted passive or BAP) and Active - based on how the tags obtain power and how they use it to communicate with the interrogator. More technical details regarding differences between these three categories are discussed on our Explore Portal .

What are the technical differences?

The passive...

Comparison of NFC & Barcode to RFID Inventory Tracking ...

This is a second part of Comparison of RFID, NFC and Barcode for Inventory Tracking. You can review the first part related to RFID here .

NFC Technology (Near Field Communication)

NFC Technology lays under the umbrella of RFID technology. While the RFID technology that we discussed above for inventory tracking uses the UHF frequency (860 - 960 MHz), the NFC utilizes HF (13.56 MHz) and specific...

Active RFID versus passive RFID | RFID4U

Requires presence of interrogator to work

Limited amount data storage

Require higher power interrogators

Low read range (few inches to 20 feet)

Note: A low read range might be considered an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on a tag's application. When a tag is used for credit card or for access control card, a low read range is an advantage, because you do not want somebody to be able to...

How to pick the right RFID tag for uniform and laundry ...

As we mentioned earlier RFID has been used for laundry tracking for a long time. Main challenges were:

Attachment of tags

Read range


All these aspects have massively improved from the first time RFID tags were used for laundry years ago. There are several good options when looking for an RFID tag to track your uniforms or laundry. Interestingly RFID tags for uniform and laundry tracking...
