Understanding RFID

Radio frequency identification is the wireless use of electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. RFID is similar to barcoding in that data from a tag or label are captured by a device that stores the data in a database. RFID, however, has several advantages over systems that use barcode asset tracking software. The most notable is that RFID tag data can be read outside the line-of-sight, whereas barcodes must be aligned with an optical scanner.  


RFID System Components

At a simple level, RFID systems consist of three components: an RFID tag or smart label, an RFID reader, and an antenna. RFID tags contain an integrated circuit and an antenna, which are used to transmit data to the RFID reader. The reader then converts the radio waves to a more usable form of data. Information collected from the tags is then transferred through a communications interface to a host computer system, where the data can be stored in a database and analyzed at a later time. 


Accurate Counting 

  • UHF RFID readers can count hundreds of RFID tags per minute. This is achieved by passing RFID tags under the reader or antenna. Tags are highly durable and are waterproof. 

Improves labour efficiency 

  • Up to 70% labor saving through removal of manual recording systems which can be subject to errors, and which require constant accuracy checks. 


  • Automated health and safety reporting, reducing the need for separate inventory and health and safety systems
