Tags may be selected for compliance with certain standards. The standards may be open, such as ISO, or they may be proprietary. It is a good practice to follow the open and popular standards, because more companies manufacturing products use these standards than proprietary ones, providing a wider choice of products. In addition, these products may be cheaper due to higher volume, and support for them may be available for a longer period. With the wide acceptance of EPC Gen 2 standards (now also ISO 18000-6c), it is best to use Gen 2–compliant products if you are going to use UHF tags.

RFID tag application in manhole cover Management


The public underground utilities of communications, gas, electricity and others are increasing with the development of infrastructure in our cities, as well as the number of manhole covers of different underground utilities facilities is increasing. At recent, there are some phenomenons that manhole covers are stoled, broken and not managed in time, because of the power of managing manhole covers is not enough. How to improve the manhole covers management is a hard and hot issue that facilities management departments worry about in our country. Government and facilities management departments star to pay high attention to this issue. After losing manhole covers, it is hard to sure the property of manhole covers. Thus, we can’t find property unit and service it in time. It is posserble to monitor the management of manhole covers and maintain road by using RFID techmology with the fast development of RFID technology in our country.

We can install a RFID tag to record impformation at each manhole cover and well location by RFID technology. The property unit can be identified immediately by scanning the tag, and supplement manhole covers in the shortest time when the manhole covers lost.

RFID manhole cover management system is based on RFID technology platform. It consists of low frequency RFID tags, reader, RFID handheld machine and background management software.

RFID tags can be designed to different form, in addition to the requirement of usage. It can be applied on oil, dust, rain and other bad enveroument. Thus, adopting RFID tags as asset identifier can solve the problem of damaging tags in outside to the devices offen used in outside.Radio frequency technology using radio carrier wave communication technology to achieve data exchange and achieve a invisible way of non-touch to read label information. And RFID tags can store data. We can repeatedly write data into it for 100,000 times.

The key data of the main imformation of manhole cover can be recorded in tags by using RFID tags. Each RFID tag has only one ID number all over the world, this ID number is programmed by ROM mold when generating integrated circuit. It can’t be changed. Thus, RFID tags can’t be copied or replaced. We can read the data of RFID tags that installed in devices by handheld devices without opening the cover of devices. Meanwhile, we can quickly hold the key information of manhole covers and the status of the lost manhole covers.

Super large reading range UHF on metal tags

long read range RFID tag
long read range RFID tag

OPP130 UHF on metal tags with long reading range at 30Meters which is designed from OPPIOT Technologies ,its feature is passive RFID tags ,and it is the longest readding range UHF on metal tags in our product line .

The chip for this long range UHF on metal tags is Alien Higgs-3
Size at130*42*10.5mm ,people can install this tags freely on metal surface.then get the long reading range at 30meters ,also can get reading range at 12Meter on non metal surface .

Application industry for our tags OPP130 is at container management in seaport ,cargo management ,and also Outdoor power equipment inspection, pallet management, etc., used in area passive UHF tags and requires 20-30 meters of reading distance.

RFID tags for inventory management

RFID tag does not require a line of sight for scanning. Long range RFID readers can read all RFID tags at the same time and don’t need to scan each RFID sticker on item. For example, In conveyor-based operations, those boxes have to be oriented a certain way on the belt so that the barcode label can be scanned. But RFID tags can be read from any orientation, it can speed up the scanning process and reduce the labor associated with repositioning boxes for scanning. Also, wide range readers can read multiple tags at the same time, so an entire pallet-load of items can be scanned simultaneously.

RFID tags for inventory can reduce labor costs. Labor can account for 50% to 80% of costs in a distribution center. With RFID readers and RFID tags, inventory check-in, regularly inventory counts, picking/pack times, and shipment verification can all be done in seconds or minutes. Processes that used to require multiple employees to complete can be handled automatically with a few scans, now it can be finished in seconds.

RFID tag also improves visibility of inventory by providing real-time updates and faster scanning. With long range RFID readers placed at each portal or doorway, you can know exactly when inventory enters or leaves a location; whatever employees move an item anywhere, it will not affect data accuracy. That RFID tag can also improve the tracking of returns or recalled items by providing real-time updates as the goods re-enter the facility.

For companies that use returnable containers or pallets, RFID tag uses to track those items across the supply chain, optimize asset inventory, and reduce loss or theft. Returnable containers can represent millions of dollars in capital investments, so RFID tag for inventory management is the best way to reduce those expenses.

Using RFID tag for Warehouse Management

RFID tag in the warehouse application, which shows the RFID tag has more advantage and a lot of convenience , it makes our life became technology.

In order to improve productivity and control, warehouses are seriously considering the use of radio frequency identification (FRID) tags for day-to-day operations. This wireless technology increases efficiency of warehouse management because, Unlike bar codes, the device doesn’t have to be pointed at the tag at all and can read tags from several feet away. This is just one of the many reasons why warehouses are making the switch to RFID technology. Here are a few of the other ways your warehouse can improve its pallet tracking by incorporating RFID technology in your warehouse tracking system.

Tags do not have to be seen in order to read data. This means that tracking products or people can happen from anywhere in a specified range which maximizes speed and efficiency. RFID tags can store up to 100 times the data of bar codes, allowing you to keep track of all the data you need for your inventory such as lot and serial number, size, manufacturer, vendor, expiration date, user, location on production line and anything else you might want to know.

The main purpose of using RFID technology is to increase warehouse efficiency by reducing labor and logistic costs that are otherwise provides ever-increasing pressure on profit margins in today’s competitive environment. It is cost-efficient because the warehouses can now streamline several operational areas inside their premises. For example, picture a typical warehouse where staff receives boxes of stock accompanied by paperwork detailing items in the delivery. Staff members then manually check each box’s contents against the manifest. This wireless technology in warehouses can help establish a simple paperless, on-line communication between operations and the staff’s computer.

The position of each rfid tag is flexible since the RFID tag doesn’t need to be physically seen by the reader. For example, you can place RFID sticker tags in boxes or within a pallet. RFID technology is functional inside and outside the warehouse. The RFID technology has the capacity to withstand harsh environments and temperatures, even the custom rfid tags!

Automatic Inventory Modification which one of the biggest advantages of using RFID technology is in receiving. Because an RFID device doesn’t have to be pointed at the RFID tag, the device can be set up automatically to read and log any RFID tag.
