Radio Frequency Identification Antennas
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is technology that uses radio waves to transfer data from an electronic tag (RFID Tag), swipe card or label to track vehicles, equipment, packages or people through to a reader. It is effectively an electronic bar code.
Passive RFID tags (those without a battery) can be read if passed within close enough proximity to an RFID reader’s antenna. It is not necessary to “show” the tag (unlike barcodes) therefore they can be read even if enclosed in a box, carton or container. RFID tags can be read hundreds at a time, making it very efficient & cost effective.
RFID can be used in many applications such as tracking and managing inventory, assets or people. Tags can be affixed to just about anything - cars, computer equipment, books, mobile phones, etc.
RFID is a superior and more efficient way of identifying objects than manual systems.
