Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders. The technology requires cooperation of an RFID reader and an RFID tag.
An RFID tag is an object that can be applied to or incorporated into a product, animal, or person for the purpose of identification and tracking using radio waves. Some tags can be read from several meters away and beyond the line of sight of the reader.
Most RFID tags contain at least two parts. One is an integrated circuit for storing and processing information, modulating and demodulating a radio-frequency (RF) signal, and other specialized functions. The second is an antenna for receiving and transmitting the signal.
There are generally two types of RFID tags: active RFID tags, which contain a battery, and passive RFID tags, which have no battery.
Today, RFID is used in enterprise supply chain management to improve the efficiency of inventory tracking and management.
Contactless cards are passive transponders according ISO 7816. They are built with the most advanced antenna and assembly technologies.
Keyfobs combine the RFID technology with good looking and practical keyfob housings. They can easily be fitted to a normal key ring. CompTAGS RFID Adhesive Labels do perfectly fit for the identification of products / persons in many RFID indoor applications, such as supply chain, document identification, book identification in libraries and access control.
Adhesive labels have blank matt paper on the top, which protects the chip and the antenna underneath. Thanks to their permanent adhesive layer with release paper (on the backside of the label), they can be easily fixed to the items. They can be personalized at the customer site with a HF printer or can be ordered pre-personalized from CompTAGS, for example with barcode.
Disc Tags is a perfect fit for identification of objects in industrial and logistics applications. They are very robust and have been designed for rough environments.
LR panel antenna is the perfect device for access control, supply chain and library applications. This antenna fits perfectly with CompTAGS EzScan LR reader.
Long Range Reader - a Read/Write device for ISO 15693 transponders (ISO 18000-3). It is easily possible to get a connection to a PC/Host thanks to the integrated RS 232 and LAN interface.
