RFID technology: More efficiency, transparency and process reliability

From logistics to industry to retail: efficient work processes are crucial in every industry. The fast and secure identification of goods and products plays a major role in this. RFID readers speed up scanning processes and make work easier without compromising on error-proneness or convenience. On the contrary: RFID readers are among the most secure and fastest reader solutions and deliver the best results in data capture - provided they are optimally adapted to their individual application and the nature of the environment. To do this, you need to understand how RFID or RFID transponders and RFID readers work.

How RFID works - What is RFID?

RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification. It is the technology for contactless data exchange between an RFID transponder and an RFID reader or RFID scanner. An RFID system therefore always consists of an RFID transponder and an RFID reader (transmitter-receiver system). RFID transponders are often also called RFID tags. In order for an RFID scanner to capture data, it builds up a high-frequency electromagnetic field that activates the passive RFID transponder. The high-frequency energy it absorbs via the antenna serves as a power supply for its integrated chip during the data exchange. The information is stored on this chip. The activated chip in the RFID tag decodes the commands sent by the RFID reader, encodes the response and sends it back to the reader through the electromagnetic field. Conversely, information can also be stored on the chips in this way. For data exchange via RFID, there does not have to be any direct contact or line of sight between the reader and the RFID transponder. Thus, each RFID tag can be detected by all electrically non-conductive materials.

RFID readers: Capture multiple items simultaneously without line of sight

Unlike barcode scanners or QR code scanners, for example, RFID readers can scan multiple items simultaneously thanks to the way they work. Moreover, the readers do not have to read a code, but can scan RFID tags "blind" over a reading range of up to 15 metres. For example, if you have a packed pallet with several goods, each individual product would actually have to be scanned at goods receipt. This takes a lot of time and is error-prone. Thanks to RFID, the reader can simply scan the entire pallet or the RFID tags on it without contact. In this way, the number and type of products are transmitted securely in real time - without "touching" the pallet.

The right RFID solution for your project - many areas of application

Whether handheld, stationary or ultra-slim, our range offers the right RFID device for every purpose. The RFID readers can be used in many different ways, for example for work in the warehouse, at the checkout, for shipping inspections and in stocktaking. Our robust RFID readers work trouble-free and are also perfectly suited for rough working environments. Our readers are characterised by the highest quality in workmanship and function. See for yourself and make your selection.
