RFID
Radio Frequency Identification For Inventory Control & Security

EasiID logo 02RFID is an automatic identification technology that identifies tagged objects by using invisible radio waves. 

Radiofrequency identification or RFID technology is an emerging technology that gives businesses the freedom to receive, store and transmit digital information about their products, merchandise, vehicles and more.

RFID works on the same principle as microchipping your pets – information is stored on an RFID chip or ‘tag’ and when needed, that information can be extracted from the chip. This example is RFID working at a very basic level.

Easitag provides RFID Labels to industries that improve varied aspects of their business using RFID technologies.

Manufacturing

RFID, or Radiofrequency identification stickers, tags and chips can be used in production lines by being attached to a manufactured product. This gives the manufacturer the ability to track the progress of their products throughout the assembly line.

Warehousing

RFID tags can be used in a range of different ways when it comes to tracking goods through warehouses. RFID tags can be attached to almost any product making it easier to locate, identify and track products throughout the warehousing process.

What is Radio-frequency identification?

RFID is the wireless non-contact use of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data. Typically in an RFID system or a ‘reader’ as they’re sometimes called, will communicate with a tag, which holds digital information in a microchip. An RFID system basically consists of three separate components –

The RFID reader
containing the electronics to send, receive and interpret RF communications with tags.

The RFID reader antenna
or coil that broadcasts and collects the radio signals for the reader.

A transponder (tag)
has a microchip that contains information to uniquely identify itself, such as a serial number.

How RFID Works

As the tag passes through the electromagnetic zone it detects the readers' activation signal. The reader then decodes the data encoded in the tags integrated circuit (chip) and the data is passed to the host computer.

One of the key characteristics of RFID is that it does not require the tag to be seen to read its stored data; this means that a tag can be placed either inside or outside.

What type of information do RFID tags hold?

RFID tags/labels can be used to access far more item information than can be encoded into a barcode.  So significantly more information can be associated to and travel with an item e.g. colour, place of purchase, date of manufacture, price, warranty expiry date, etc.

'Tis the season for joy, festivities, gift-giving, shopping and, unfortunately, a rise in shoplifting. As Christmas trading approaches, many businesses are gearing up for the annual surge in genuine customers and those with a less-than-honest intention when they walk into a store. Retailers are always looking for the best way to protect their merchandise, and one of the most effective strategies is anti-theft tagging with a focus on source tagging security labels.

Today’s retailers face a fast-paced and ever-evolving retail landscape. To thrive in this type of environment, companies must prioritise security and efficiency to stay ahead of the competition. One incredibly effective way to help achieve this is by implementing source-based Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) or Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tagging.

It’s hard to believe the release of the very first iPhone was only 13 years ago. If you had told the average consumer fifteen years ago that in the space of little over a decade, almost the entire population of the planet would have a mobile device that could give them instant access to the internet, pay for products, stream their favourite TV shows and music, use GPS to help them navigate, take high-quality video and replace a multitude of electronic and digital products, you could very well have been considered a nut case. Only a few short years later we’ve now come to rely on this technology and take it for granted in our everyday lives. The proliferation of mobile apps and products that integrate with mobile phones has created an entirely new market of opportunity, not only for business but for marketers and advertisers too.
