Radiofrequency identification (RFID) is a wireless technology that makes use of electrostatic coupling for identifying and tracking objects. Both consumers and industries are increasingly adopting this technology for various purposes. RFID systems are composed of an RFID label or tag, a transceiver, and a scanning antenna. The latter components are usually combined as an RFID reader, which activates the label using radio waves. TSC rfid labels respond to this by sending their encoded data. The following are the benefits of RFID labels:
Ease of Scanning
RFID labels don’t require full visibility to be read. RFID chip signals are emitted even if obscured or packed in a container, letting readers pick them up from a wide radius. In addition, reading RFID labels is possible from a few feet away. This allows for great versatility in placing RFID labels and tags, letting users pick locations that reduce the chances of abrasion and removal.
RFID labels provide data encryption and physical protection that ensures data security. Every chip comes with a unique identification number that can’t be replicated. RFID labels can be used for printing information for general reading like product names to make sure that sensitive data stays confidential and encrypted.
The convenience of scanning RFID labels makes it possible to read and process them in batches. Simultaneous scanning of these labels is done without time lag in between item registration. In turn, this can increase efficiencies, especially in industries that manage a huge amount of inventory.
Flexibility and Longevity
High-quality passive RFID labels showcase an ultra-high frequency inlay, which doesn’t require a battery to run. The inlay can be produced in very small and thin dimensions. Also, RFID labels can be fixed to uneven and curved surfaces. Industrial RFID labels are made to be durable, unlike barcodes, which tend to be damaged and tampered with easily. These labels can withstand extreme temperatures, harsh environments, and heavy use.
Result Accuracy and Cost-Efficiency
Due to the possibility of scanning RFID labels in a wide radius, there is a slim chance of missing out on an item because of human error. Updating RFID data for even hundreds of items can be done quickly. This makes it possible to check the status of assets in almost real-time. And because processing items that have RFID labels can be done in batches, the labour and operating costs are much lower. The labels’ durability also minimizes possible replacement costs.
