Barcode vs RFID - Relative Benefits
Using RFID used to be thought of as an expensive solution but new developments in RFID technology and reducing prices, mean that RFID can now deliver real ROI. This short guide provides a list of the areas that should be considered by those creating a cost-justification for RFID based systems.
1. LINE OF SIGHT ISSUES
RFID Tag - Battery Assisted Passive Tags - CoreRFID
If you need greater read distances or quicker response times than can be achieved with ordinary RFID tags, the answer may be in battery assisted passive tags.
Conventional RFID tags use the power from the readers signal to turn on and then to run the chip, power the memory and power the transmission back to the reader. As a result the distance between the reader and the tag has to be close enough...
NFC and RFID - CoreRFID
The NFC Near Field Communication standard focuses on three activities. Firstly it allows a reader device to interact with a passive radio frequency device, typically a contactless smart card. Secondly the reader device incorporates its own contactless smart card which it can use as part of the transaction. Thirdly it allows two reading devices to exchange data.
Examples of NFC and RFID style...
GE Power utilising RFID Tool Tracking System - CoreRFID
by Lewis Tandy
GE, needed a process which was less manual and unmanned when tracking the tools issued on site. They were finding that tools often got lost or unaccounted for and that they needed to man the containers, which can be expensive.
RFID Gateways - Track goods on the move
RFID SYSTEMS: PORTALS
RFID Gateways and Portal applications keep track of goods on the move, locating them to sites or checking their movement around buildings. RFID readers, with appropriate antennae mounted at a doorway can record every tag that passes through it.
RFID at the Gateway
Checking goods shipment and movement of products through the manufacturing chain can all be helped by the...
