RFID application in industrial Asset tracking

Radio Frequency Identification is a ideal technology for tracking assets.

RFID tags are the simpler way to track them. Every tagged asset can be tracked by reading the upcoming radio signals from each tag. Our asset tracking tags enable you to instantly get the general location of tagged objects anywhere within a specified space.

Asset tracking allows you to monitor the status, location and availability in your extended operations; manage your assets on demand by knowing where they are and boost production by getting your assets where they need to be without delay. Integrate your business processes with on demand knowledge of work-in-process manufacturing, and make more informed decisions.

Asset tracking can be used in various industries like baggage handling, parcel handling, supply chain, service industries, distribution logistics and manufacturing companies to identify goods & objects in an industrial environment.RFID Industrial Asset Management is a powerful tool to boost business activities for the maximum profits.

Passive Ultra High Frequency (860-960 MHz) tags

Passive Ultra High Frequency (860-960 MHz) tags have the longest read ranges of all passive tags (up to 15 feet, sometimes more).

They are most commonly used for inventory control and supply chain management of goods, parts and materials, and for case and pallet tracking in retail, manufacturing, pharma, logistics, military and other industries.

Passive UHF tags are also used for asset management that includes computer and IT asset tracking, furniture, equipment, uniform and laundry tracking; and returnable asset management in manufacturing, healthcare, logistics and other industries. Passive tags can be also used for personnel tracking, patient tracking and event management.

Passive tags in very small form factors can be also used for anti-counterfeiting.

Within passive UHF there are also Near Field tags that utilize the near field and these have read ranges only a few inches. Their advantage is usage of same protocols and frequency as far-field UHF combined with good penetration of liquids and moist materials and short read range.

What is UHF RFID Label and UHF RFID Tag?

We’ve redesigned the UHF RFID label from the ground up to save you money without compromising performance. A battery-assisted passive has a small battery on board and is activated when in the presence of an RFID reader. The RFID tag receives the message and then responds with its identification and other information. Since tags have individual serial numbers, the RFID system design can discriminate among several tags that might be within the range of the RFID reader and read them simultaneously.

UHF RFID label contain at least two parts: an integrated circuit for storing and processing information, modulating and demodulating a radio-frequency signal, collecting DC power from the incident reader signal, and other specialized functions; and an antenna for receiving and transmitting the signal. The UHF RFID tag includes either fixed or programmable logic for processing the transmission and sensor data, respectively.

The UHF RFID tag can be affixed to an object and used to track and manage inventory, assets, people, etc. UHF RFID offers advantages over manual systems or use of bar codes The tag can be read if passed near a reader, even if it is covered by the object or not visible.

The tag can be read inside a case, carton, box or other container, and unlike barcodes, RFID tags can be read hundreds at a time. Sewn-in UHF RFID label in garment manufactured by the French sports supplier Decathlon Front, back, and transparency scan. RFID provides a way for organizations to identify and manage tools and equipment, without manual data entry. UHF RFID label are widely used in identification badges , replacing earlier magnetic stripe cards.

The RFID antenna in a permanently installed coupling half unmistakably identifies the RFID transponder placed in the other coupling half after completed coupling. The coupling’s location can be clearly identified by the RFID transponder coding. In many countries, OPP IOT RFID tags can be used to pay for mass transit fares on bus, trains, or subways, or to collect tolls on highways. Implantable RFID chips designed for animal tagging are now being used in humans.

What is UHF passive RFID tag?

When it comes to radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions, ultra-high frequency (UHF) passive RFID tags are an extremely popular option because they are very cost-effective, yet still have one of the longest read ranges. They have no power of their own — which is why they are called “passive” tags — so they are powered by the radio frequency energy transmitted from RFID readers/antennas. A UHF passive RFID tag consists of four sub-components: and RFID chip, an antenna, an inlay, and a carrier.

The RFID chip is an integrated circuit that provides several key attributes related to operating frequency, memory type and capacity, data transmission/receipt, and power. In other words, the chip is the brains of the RFID tag. The antenna, which is attached to the chip, collects radio frequency waves used to power the chip. The antenna also transmits attribute data from the chip. Together, the chip and the antenna comprise the RFID inlay.

An inlay is typically a plastic substrate that the chip and antenna are placed on so they can be connected. Inlays come in two types: wet and dry. A wet inlay features an adhesive so it can be applied to a surface; a dry inlay has no adhesive. The choice of inlay depends on the purpose and placement of the tag on an object.

There are literally hundreds of different types of inlays, each designed with a specific application in mind. Different industries have different requirements for inlays, so there are inlays for pharmaceutical, automotive, retail, manufacturing, and healthcare applications. The inlays are designed for optimum performance when affixed to the material they are intended for. Inlay manufacturers ship their products to RFID tag producers, like Lowry Solutions, who then produce finished products that are ready to be applied.

The carrier is the material or package that the inlay is placed in. The simplest carrier is label stock (think barcode label), where the inlay is laminated into the label stock using specialized converting equipment. Examples of other carriers include plastic capsules or ID badges. Sometimes carriers are made of specialized materials that make it easy to mount the UHF RFID tag on liquid containers or metal, or in high-heat or hazardous environments. These types of carriers are often referred to as “hard tags.”

How to choose the proper UHF passive RFID tag
Selecting the proper RFID tag can be difficult because there are literally thousands on the market today. So how do you figure out what kind of tag you need?

The selection process starts with the RFID chip. Your business’s data requirements will determine the kind of chip you need because the chip’s capacity must provide the proper amount of data in the proper format.

Then you should select the RFID inlay. This process depends on the physical properties of the product to which you want to apply an RFID tag. The antennas on individual inlays are designed and tuned to specific materials. Antennas will have different designs if the inlay is being applied to metal or glass versus cardboard, and different yet again for materials with a high liquid content.

There are near-field antennas that provide short-read ranges versus full-field, long-read range antennas, depending on your requirements. It is highly advised that you consult an RFID professional to ensure that you select the right tag for your application.

Where do I place the UHF tag?
Once you’ve chosen the right tag, the challenge becomes selecting the ideal location to place the tag on the targeted item. Regardless of what the item is or what it’s made of, proper tag placement depends on how the item traverses the business process and where in the process the tag needs to be read. With this knowledge, which is typically obtained in an RFID site survey, the tag can be optimally placed to ensure that it is read.

When you’re implementing your RFID project, don’t forget to consider how you’re going to apply your passive RFID tags to your target object. There is a cost associated with this, and in some applications, it can be significant.

For example, if you’re implementing an RFID asset tracking application, you need to install an RFID tag on each asset (typically a permanent tag). Depending on the number of assets and where they reside, implementation could be expensive. This cost needs to be figured into the overall project.

Parking Management

RFID Tags assist in Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) and Vehicle Tracking. Commercial vehicles as well as personal vehicles need to be identified and tracked for secure access to gated and controlled parking areas.

RFID enabled Windshield Tags are placed on the windscreen of the vehicles which can be read when the vehicle passes through a RFID enabled gantry or parking lot gate. RFID technology allows for easy and fast communication between tag and reader. This helps in allowing access to a vehicle to a secure gated parking lot, automates billing and electronic collection of parking fees, and eliminates scope of misplacing parking tokens/tickets.

OPP IOT Windshield tags are tamper-proof which eliminates scope of theft of these tags. Any attempt to transfer or shift the tag from one vehicle to another vehicle causes the tag to lose its functionality and this helps in accurate automatic vehicle identification.
