What is UHF RFID tags?

UHF RFID is an acronym mouthful. UHF stands for ultrahigh frequency, while RFID stands for radio frequency identification. In some instances, this technology is replacing barcodes as a method of managing warehouse inventory and the supply chain. RFID tags are placed on each object and UHF radio frequencies read the stored data. A UHF RFID tag allows stock to be managed and tracked without an employee manually scanning each item.

UHF is a large radio band that ranges from 300 MHz to 3 GHz. Cell phones, pagers and satellite communications use this band, because it can be broken up into numerous sub-bands. The distance the tag is able to transmit depends on the UHF sub-band used, with lower frequencies having shorter ranges. The UHF RFID tag may use sub-bands that provide a range as small as 6 feet (1.8 meters).

UHF RFID requires three components: a transponder, an antenna and a transceiver. The transponder, or tag, contains data and is attached to the item. The antenna transmits the UHF radio signal to the transponder, powering and activating it. The activated transponder then transmits the data stored on the tag back to the transceiver. Data such as who is in possession of an item, where the item is during shipment and the location of an item in a warehouse can all be read from the RFID tag.

The UHF RFID tag has numerous benefits over the more common barcode. The tag can hold much more data and, unlike a barcode, data can be added, updated or changed. While a barcoded item needs to be oriented so the barcode faces outward, the RFID tag does not have to be visible. Printed barcodes are also susceptible to wearing or weathering during shipment. A UHF RFID tag can be placed inside the packaging for protection.

There are two types of UHF RFID tags, active and passive. Active RFIDs have a battery, allowing them to be self-powered and store a large amount of data. Governments use these active tags to audit shipments because they cannot be erased. Passive RFIDs are the most widely used and the typical tag can store between 8 kilobytes (kB) and 32 kB of data. Passive tags can be erased, allowing data to be rewritten and the tag reused.

One drawback is that UHF RFID tags rely on radio waves, and some material can cause radio interference. Factories with steel frameworks, metallic products or liquids may be a challenge for RFID. Barcodes may be a more reliable option for managing these types of products in the supply chain.

Security and privacy may also be an issue with the UHF RFID tag. The information on the tags is generally not encrypted and the radio waves are easily received. It may be possible for a hacker to collect information from tags simply by standing near a loading dock. Private information such as a customer’s name or special pricing can be picked up and exploited.

Passive RFID in Construction

Retail, Automotive, and other industries have been utilizing RFID technology for years but not until recently did RFID technology in the construction industry become common. More and more companies are adopting the technology and realizing the benefit and value that RFID can provide to the industry. So much so, we are now seeing RFP’s from Owners mandating that the EPC/Contractor utilize some form of RFID traceability in their materials management approach and strategies.

Active RFID Tags have been the primary form of RFID utilized in typical “Track and Trace” applications., they are rugged and have provide read ranges up to 100m. However, Active RFID Tags are often viewed as “too costly” to implement throughout a construction supply chain. Active RFID Tags are typically used on tracking Structural Steel and Pre-Fabricated pipe spools. This provides immense value, however, we are missing a huge piece of supply chain visibility that often plagues construction projects.

Active RFID Tag’s “little brother”, the Passive RFID Tag, has been viewed as unreliable and a non-value add for use in construction materials management. In my opinion, this is a false view.

Taking a proactive approach to integrate Passive RFID Technology into your construction supply chain, materials management and laydown yard strategy will (and is) paying dividends for construction firms across the globe.

Supply Chain Visibility – Moving further upstream with identification of materials at a supplier’s facility by leveraging Passive RFID Tags to identify smaller critical components, valves, instrumentation, etc. has allowed for an unprecedented amount of visibility into the dreaded “Supplier/Vendor Provided Ship Loose Component” battle that we’ve all faced during project execution.

Automated Receiving – Short and Sweet – Being able to pop a lid to a crate (full of ship-loose from vendor), engage a reader, and populate a receiving report (including overages and shortages) would make any material manager smile.

Laydown Yard Management – Typical laydown yard grids (A1, B1, etc.) are approximately 10m x 10m. Often times in rows of (2) making them approximately 20m wide. During recent testing, Passive RFID Tags with Vehicle Mounted Antennas have been read at over 20m with ease. This coupled with deliberate handheld sweeps in the laydown yard provide material managers with 100% automated cycle counts resulting in a significant PMLI (Positive Material Location and Identification) score otherwise known as “your laydown yard accuracy”.

Downsides – Passive RFID tags come with their downsides. The #1 downside, in my opinion, is visibility after issuance to construction. Passive RFID Tags will provide extremely accurate locations within a laydown yard, however, once issued to construction, tight grid locations are eliminated. Materials are placed under piping racks, behind connex’s and up on top of scaffolding. This can be mitigated though. Incorporating deliberate (“purposeful sweeps”) sweeps into your materials management strategy of the workface (and driving the Vehicle Mounted Reader) through the workface, will dramatically increase your PMLI after issuance to construction.

Overall, Active RFID Tags will has a place in construction materials management but Passive RFID Tag technology is giving it’s “big brother” a run for its money. Atlas RFID Solutions currently has over 1.5 million passive RFID tags deployed across the globe for construction materials management applications.

RFID application in Food & Wine

Each year about 1 in 6 people in the United States gets sick from eating contaminated food, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Analysts estimate that as much as 70 percent of the Chateau Lafite floating around Chinese wine cellars is fake.

Modern life created abundant goods for everyone, when we enjoy the rich life that modern science created, do we realize that the safety of foods is become a severe problems?

Some of the black-heart manufactures will take other’s health aside by using the cheapest or contaminated material to make the foods or beverage, while others will forge their products as branded ones.

How to guarantee food safety, how to protect us from faked products? The traditional method is by printed label with some security features, however as fake technology developed, this methods seemed childish for the professionals.

Therefore RFID technology emerged. Not like the traditional printed label, each label contains an embedded chip, which bears its unique ID and is unable to copy or revise by current technology. When each rfid tags are made, the database will store this ID into their database through wireless network, and in retails, the sold products will again scanned, selling statues will refreshed as sold out. Through this tracking system, manufactures not only guarantee their interest, but also increase customer’s satisfactions and sales cycles.

So what on earth RFID technology can bring to Food and Beverage industry?
