RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), is a non-contact automatic identification technology. It automatically identifies the target objects and gets relevant data through radio frequency signals. The identification work does not require manual intervention. RFID technology has the advantages of waterproof, antimagnetic, high temperature resistance, long service life, long reading distance, encrypted data on the label, larger data storage capacity, and freely changeable information, which is not available in barcodes. It bring revolutionary changes to industries such as logistics and retail.
Components of RFID system
RFID system is consists of three parts: RFID tag, antenna and reader;
Tag: it is consists of coupling elements and chips, each tag has a unique electronic code, high-capacity electronic tags have a user writing area, which is attached to the object to identify the target object;
RFID Reader: It reads writes tag information equipment, there are handheld or fixed RFID readers;
Antenna: Transmitting RF signals between tags and readers;
Data storage: Compared with the traditional tags, RFID tag has larger capacity (1bit-1024bits), and it can read write tags at any time.
Reading and writing speed: Compared with barcode, there is no need to scan in a straight line, and it has faster reading writing speed. RFID reader can read multiple tags even under movement.
Easy to use: small size, easy to pack, can be embedded into the product;
Security: Special designed chip, unique serial number, difficult to copy;
Durable: no mechanical failure, long lasting life, resistant to harsh environments;
RFID asset tracking system
The RFID asset management system adopts radio frequency technology (RFID). Each fixed asset is equipped with a globally unique ID number RFID tag, and a handheld or fixed reader is used for asset inventory. It can quickly read the RFID tags information on the equipment, and the information is sent to the server for processing through the built-in communication wireless communication module.
The fixed reader is used for access control. With the circularly polarized antenna, it can read tags at multi-angle. The installation of the reader at the elevator entrance (staircase entrance) can realize the tracking of assets tracking.
The real-time tracking of the assets that enters into the building and monitoring of all types of fixed assets from newly added, allocated, idle, scrapped, maintained, and counted, combined with asset classification statistics and other reports to truly achieve “accounts, cards, properties” Match.
This solution mainly installs RFID equipment at the staircase entrance to locate assets in the office building and know the location of the assets at any time.
Compare the data in the RFID handheld reader with the data in the database, and process the normal or abnormal data to get the actual situation of the fixed assets. You can generate the inventory profit schedule, inventory loss schedule, Inventory summary table.
The whole system has the features of long reading distance, fast identification, high reliability, high security, and easy operation. The advantages are mainly below:
RFID technology is easy to operate and more efficient
The traditional management method is to read each tag at a short distance, which is inconvenient to operate; now with non-contact reading and writing, which can reach a few meters or even a dozen meters, which is more convenient to read.
Strong anti-pollution performance and durability
The current UHF RFID tags are durable, not easily damaged, can last up to ten years, and have strong anti-pollution performance.
The RFID tag can repeatedly add, modify, and delete the data stored in the RFID tag to facilitate the update of information.
