Ultra high frequency CREATES THE MOST VALUE

Ultra high frequency technology is the fastest growing segment on the RFID market. The majority of new RFID projects are using UHF, as opposed to HF or LF systems. To date, UHF technology has over 20 billion connected items providing real-time visibility and data to a myriad of everyday items. UHF systems are known for generating long read ranges, up to twelve meters (forty feet), whereas HF systems carry a much shorter read range of approximately one meter (three feet). UHF allows for a faster data transfer rate, up to 20 times the range and speed of HF systems. This enables quicker transaction capture times and faster data processing.

As UHF solidifies its position as the global standard and preferred RFID technology across vertical markets, tag prices continue to drop. In 2017, UHF RFID tags cost approximately $.05 to $.15 per tag, whereas HF tags range from $.50 to $2.00 per tag.

Using a UHF RFID system eliminates the need for manual processes, thus increasing inventory visibility and automating workflows. There are countless benefits to incorporating UHF RFID systems into healthcare and life science markets, including:
* Gain real-time visibility of inventory
* Automate inventory tracking and workflows
* Prevent use of expired or recalled products
* Remotely monitor temperature and inventory alerts
* Reduce shrinkage and prevent inventory stock-outs
* Secure access to specified areas or products
* Improve overall business operations

UHF RFID Frequency Regulations

UHF RFID Frequencies vary in each country based on each country’s regulations. Each country adopts an UHF RFID frequency that best fits within that country. These frequency ranges and standards were first put in place by a group of organizations – the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), ASTM International, and EPC Global. These frequency bands are now known as the ISM bands, or the Industrial Scientific and Medical Bands.

UHF RFID Technology uses two main frequency ranges — 902-928 MHz and 865-868 MHz; however, a few countries have adopted either multiple bands or unique ranges on the ISM standard. One such country is Brazil who has adopted two uncommon frequency ranges within the 902-928 MHz range — one being 902-907.5 MHz and the other being 915-928 MHz. In order for UHF RFID equipment to be in compliance with Brazil’s regulations, the RFID reader needs to be set to broadcast within Brazil’s specific frequency ranges. This means that if you bring a UHF RFID reader to Brazil and operate using the full 902-928 MHz frequency range, you are in violation of local governmental regulations.

Frequency ranges also are subject to change. Japan, who previously used two very unique frequency ranges — 952-956.4 MHz and 952-957.6 MHz — has now changed to a frequency range within the 902-928 MHz range. Japan’s frequency range is currently 916.7-920.9 MHz (although 925-957.6 MHz will still be effective until March 31, 2018).

The map above shows the most common UHF frequencies for each country, but some countries have not adopted any frequency range yet. An example of a country that has not adopted a set frequency range would be Egypt who is currently working on getting that into place (as of the time of this article’s original published date).

Future UHF RFID technology development trend

For the increasingly sophisticated UHF RFID technology, the future development of ultra-high frequency RFID technology is how it? In April 2016, the world’s largest RFID industry, Alien’s global product manager Mr. Ouquan “retail industry RFID application difficulties and core technology analysis” as the title of their own views, pointed out that the future development of UHF RFID technology has three main directions: Positioning, encryption, sensor integration.
It is noteworthy that, in the fast-growing market expectations, China’s UHF RFID market there are still some constraints. Over the past two years, ultra-high frequency electronic label prices fell rapidly, but from the RFID chip and including readers, electronic tags, middleware, system maintenance and other overall costs, UHF RFID system prices are still high, and the project Cost is an important indicator of the end-user trade-off investment income.

RFID tags application in industry and logistics

Radio Frequency Identification is a ideal technology for tracking assets.

Now there is no need to store full description about them every time. 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. The Tag Factory tag products meet the requirements of harsh industrial environments.

RFID Tags for every business need

There is a wide range of RFID Tags available for different applications. RFID Tags can be passive, active or battery assisted passive. They can be read only or read/write. The business need and the environment they will be used in will dictate which tags are best suited for each client.

Different types of tags have different data capacities. Typically tags have 224 bits to circa 1k bits of user memory for LF tags, 2k bits for HF tags, 64k bits for UHF tags.

The relatively low capacity of data that can be held on tags means that applications need to be carefully designed and generally involve linking data held on the tag with data held on an external database.

Tags can be read only (supplied with pre-coded identity data only) or writable, allowing for limited updating of information on the tag.

Different tags have the ability to cope with different physical environments, shock and vibration, exposure to magnetic fields, moisture and chemicals and so on. The size of different tags will also determine antenna size and performance. The size (and in some cases the orientation) of the tag’s antenna can affect read ranges, read response times and read reliability rates. As a result it is important to consider the performance of the tag in a particular application before selecting the tags to be used.

What read range of UHF tags do you need?

“Everybody wants a small tag with long range – it’s probably the single most wished-for tag people ask me about. They only have room for a 1” by 1” tag, but they want to read it from 40 feet away. And that’s something that physics just cannot deliver in an inexpensive, passive UHF tag. Generally speaking,” smile LV from OPP IOT explains, “with passive tags, the longer the read range, the bigger the antenna.

“Do you want to read items from a distance, like for identifying inventory in a warehouse, or is this a security or authentication application, where you’d want the tag to come into much closer contact with a reader before registering? Be ready to answer those types of questions, because read range definitely influences tag selection.”
