What is RFID?

RFID or "Radio Frequency Identification" is a technology that allows the identification of items through electronic tags equipped with microchip and antenna, with varied and quite reduced sizes.

This tag containing a microchip and antenna is placed on an object in a variety of ways, either inside it, integrated into its shape, or even through stickers or "disguises". The tag has a unique and unique identification that can be recognized by small to mid-range antennas and with the ease of not needing any external power supply. When approaching an antenna, it sends a signal informing an RFID reader that it is there.

Electronic Product Code

The Electronic Product Code (EPC) is a set of standard information. Unlike the barcodes used to distinguish one product from another, the EPC can identify a specific product or a set of them within a box for example.

In the coming years the EPC along with RFID will be as common as bar code is today, incidentally, is considered the "next generation barcode".

Companies are using and developing a wide variety of applications using RFID technology. Some of them use active tags, that is, they need batteries to work; other applications use passive tags (TAGs) and are activated by fixed or mobile readers and therefore do not need their own power source. This is the case of ControlPlus, we use passive TAGs.

RFID uses radio frequency signals to communicate and identify the TAGs and ControlPlus is prepared with the best of them for endless possibilities. This includes readers, antennas, integrated systems, etc.

What information does an RFID tag store?

As a CPF, the label ID is just a number, but we all know what that number represents and what information it can deliver to us, and it is contained in a database managed by a system and what is most interesting is that RFID and their labels allow us to go much further, such as tracking an item without the need for GPS, something that a CPF number or bar code does not do because they are just printed numbers and it is best that they do not need to be in the visual field , can be read even inside boxes.

Another interesting example is that, labeled with RFID, products can be read together, ie a box containing 100 units is easily located and identified if there are missing products.

What are the benefits to companies?

From simple automatic inventory control to tracking people and supplies / products, RFID can help any business in its controls.

Hospitals can control the administration of medicines to patients, avoiding life risks, or even the sterilization of instruments to obtain traceability of their hygiene.

Factories can save fortunes by having real-time inventories and integrated with their ERP and BI systems.

Clothing stores can optimize the relationship with their customers when they return by wearing a previously purchased item there, providing all the information about the last purchase of that customer automatically, assisting the sales team, anyway the possibilities are endless.
