RFID Radio Frequency Identification

Radio frequency identification (RFID) tags are popping up everywhere.

As is the case with the versatile adhesive, clever problem-solvers are using RFID in ways its original innovators couldn’t have possibly predicted.

RFID is an ideal building block technology…Simple, scalable, and inexpensive.

RFID adopters are leveraging the technology to answer the questions of  “what is it” and “where is it” in an ever-expanding set of instances- Author: Adam Bluemner – RFID Arena

We will customise a system for your specific needs.  Talk to SEQ Electronics & Entrance Systems about how we can solve your asset problems.

RFID in intralogistics offers:

  • Identification: What kind of an object it is and is this object known or not? And what variant of an object is in question
  • Inventory: What do we have in stock?
  • Location: Where is the object at the moment?
  • Tracking: History of the item’s movement and current movement
  • Condition of the object: What environmental influences affected the object (e.g. temperature, pressure)

Let SEQ Electronics & Entrance Systems show you how to improve productivity and quality control with RFID technology.  RFID increases the productivity of your assets, and their safety. It allows you to track corporate assets and optimise your assets.

RFID allows you to record a large amount of information about the history of each item.

Advantages of RFID:

  • Item-specific identification
  • Overall solution for monitoring and locating goods
  • Traces moving assets in real time
  • Reports from remote locations and multiple locations
  • Easily renewable system
  • Scaleable system
  • Simplifies audits and stock-takes
  • Centralises all your records from multiple locations
  • Implementable down whole supply chain
  • Ensures delivery 

What is RFID?

Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) uses radio waves to read and capture information stored on an electronic tag.  RFID tags have an electronic chip and antenna.  A tag can be read from up to several feet away, and does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the reader to be tracked.  It does not rely on the literacy of the users and is an automated process.

An RFID tag can be attached to one, or to many objects.  RFID is useful if you have many items to track, or wish to track the history of tagged items for auditing or quality control purposes.  You can utilise RFID for many reasons to solve a multitude of issues you may have.

RFID is used for many different applications, and SEQ Electronics & Entrance Systems can tailor make a system to meet your particular needs, such as:

  • Measure the weight of items by integrating with scales
  • Multiple tag reading utilising anti-collision software
  • Read every item on a truck instantly, as it passes the reader
  • Logistics along whole supply chain
  • Rental Cars
  • Ticketing for automated reading to reduce queues
  • Tea and coffee plantations where workers may be remote, unskilled and not literate.  Combine system with access control for pickers for complete record keeping

The Advantages of RFID over barcode technology

  • No line of sight required
  • RFID tag can stand a harsh environment
  • Long read range
  • Portable database
  • Multiple tag read/write
  • Tracks people, items, and equipment in realtime
