|RFID technology enables organisations to track goods and assets.
Hospitals can locate expensive equipment, or patients
Pharmaceutical companies can reduce counterfeiting
Logistics management is improved
The retail industry can tag pallets and cases
Mass transit, ski resort lift passes, car key fobs and security badges for building access will all benefit from RFID technology.
KEY APPLICATIONS for RFID
Access control for people - Secure access to the work place, hospital, safety, computer, trains, buses, leisure facilities
Access control for vehicle - Road tolling, fuel payment
Manufacture - Production lines, key component labelling
Logistics - Tracking location and movement of parcels, goods, assets and containers
Maintenance - Plant and equipment, fixed assets
Security - Tamper evidence, product authentication, anti-counterfeiting
Retail - Supply chain management, stock, availability
|European Antennas specialise in high quality antennas used for scanning and reading tags with RFID systems.
|RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)
A reader, or scanner, sends and receives RF (radio frequency) data to and from the tag, via antennas to a host computer.
An active tag is powered locally, is always-on and has a long range - 100+ metres.
Draw power from reader and transmits data over shorter distance, typically less than 3 metres.
SEMI ACTIVE Tags
Battery powered, operates when contacted by reader.
