|What are the benefits of RFID ?|
As compared to conventional identification techniques, RFID technologies provide flexibility and considerable productivity savings. They save time, optimize reading operations and improve the reliability and capacity of the traceability system.
Remote, contactless and non-directional reading
RFID tags can be read through most materials (cardboard, plastic, glass, etc.) and do not require contact or line-of-sight to function. Depending on the wavebands, they can also be read from large distances. Tag reading can, however, be obstructed by metals and liquids. Picdi provides RFID solutions that are specially designed for restrictive environments.
Simultaneous reading of tags
The technology can read a large number of tags simultaneously. Data from an entire pallet of stock can be retrieved automatically using an RFID reading system.
Adaptability of the tag
RFID tags can take the form of a conventional paper label or can be incorporated into various materials (credit cards, hard tags, high-temperature tags, etc.) to suit the object and environment.
Flexibility over the information
The read/write function provides the flexibility of changing what information is stored in the tag and therefore tracking the lifecycle of a given object.
It also means that tags can be reused.
The memory of the electronic microchip can store a large amount of information, which is directly associated with the identified object.
Unique object identification
RFID technology provides a unique identification number for each RFID tag in order to identify each object individually.
