ATT5557 chips in access control system

While as technology developed, the traditional EM4100 chip is no longer worked well, because the ID number could be easily duplicated, which make its safety severely be doubted.

Then ATA5557 chips emerged in the stage, it is a chip with pin code embedded, which allow user to set up the password for safety concerns.

To better protect the password, this T5557 chip also adopt a interesting settings, which if the password misread for over 3 times, the chip will permanently locked and can not be used any more.

The market’s response is so appreciated that access control systems based on T5557 chips rapidly occupy the market.

RFID Application in Access Control

UHF RFID tags for employee access control systems is being used world-wide. There are many areas in which UHF RFID tags are carried by people to allow them to gain access to facilities or services:
• Secure access to work place and residential complexes
• Controlled access to dangerous/secure equipment including vehicles and public transport
• Access to leisure and recreational facilities such as gymnasiums and sports clubs

OPP IOT Technologies produces UHF RFID tags in a wide variety of physical form factors to suit different deployment requirements. The most common form factor is a flat plastic card the same size as a credit card, often used as an access control pass to gain access to office buildings or other secure areas. Key fob tags are also quite common, designed to be attached to a key ring so they’re always handy for operating access control systems. In some cases, reusable or disposable wristbands are also used for personal identification and check-in at events.

Usage of UHF RFID tags for access & security not only allow higher measures of safety and security, but also help maintain better data records and control of monetary payments wherever involved.

what is EMV?

EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, a global standard for inter-operation of integrated circuit cards and IC card capable point of sale terminals and automated teller machines, for authenticating credit and debit card transactions.

It is a joint effort initially conceived between Europay, MasterCard and Visa to ensure the security and global interoperability of chip based payment cards. Europay International SA was absorbed into MasterCard in 2002. The standard is now defined and managed by the public corporation EMVCo LLC. JCB joined the organization in December 2004, and American Express joined in February 2009. In May 2013 China UnionPay was announced as its latest member with UnionPay now having an equal 1/5 interest in the standards body along with Visa, MasterCard, American Express and JCB. IC card systems based on the EMV specification are being phased in across the world, under names such as “IC Credit” and “Chip and PIN”.

The EMV standards define the interaction at the physical, electrical, data and application levels between IC cards and IC card processing devices for financial transactions. There are standards based on ISO/IEC 7816 for contact cards, and standards based on ISO/IEC 14443 for contactless cards.

Pharmaceutical Authentication

Pharmaceutical Authentication

Counterfeit pharmaceutical is one of the most critical issues facing the pharmaceutical industry today. The business of selling fake drugs is escalating globally. Adoption of RFID hardware and software throughout the pharmaceutical industry from manufacturing to distribution and sale/consumption can help overcome this dangerous problem. Reliable, accurate and secure measures for tracking, tracing and authenticating pharma products across the supply chain are essential to protect consumers as well as pharmaceutical manufacturers’ brands.
When the manufacturer puts an RFID tag on the product, it stores all the static information about the product such as lot number and expiry dates in a database for record keeping. When the product moves across the supply chain, from the manufacturer to the wholesaler, this information of the tags is updated in the database holding the initial information. This process is carried out through all phases of the movement of drugs, from the wholesalers to the distributors, to the hospitals and pharmacies. It increases visibility, traceability and authentication of products to safeguard consumers health and protect the pharmaceutical industry overall.

Gas Cylinder Identification

Gas Cylinder Identification
Deployment of RFID technology enables gas cylinder identification and management through the supply chain. It helps create a transparent supply chain through accurate data records. It links the assigned cylinder with its user and helps in quick and easier usage identification and billing. RFID tracking also assists in monitoring movement of cylinders. This helps in inventor optimization through better allocation of resources and with less logistical efforts. In fact, it eliminates scope for malicious intent or manual error due to carelessness. Overall, RFID tags can be used effectively to monitor, track and bill for gas cylinders quickly and accurately.

Pallet Tracking

Pallet Tracking
Pallet Tracking is essential to enhance productivity, cost efficiencies and track reusable assets to increase return on investment. Pallet movement contributes significantly towards the handling, transport and storage costs. As goods move on pallets through a warehouse or a supply chain, it becomes imperative to track their movement and collect information regarding their location, usage, process flow and available inventory. Access to such critical information enables quick transportation of goods through optimal resource planning, accurate implementation, involving least handling time and cost.
This information can be recorded with the help of RFID tags which can be attached to the pallets or built into them. Omnia’s RFID tags for pallets are designed to withstand water, chemicals, and shock and temperature variation leading to excellent performance in harsh and outdoor environments.
Benefits of Pallet tracking using RFID Technology:

* Enhanced productivity through real-time visibility and control of pallets movement
* Improved stock tracking helps in efficient transport systems
* Reduced human error and loss of assets
* Cost efficiencies through speedy accurate tracking with reduced labour intervention
* Correct billing of goods based on accurate pallet movement leads to higher revenue

The Electronic Product Code (EPC)

The Electronic Product Code (EPC)

The Electronic Product Code is the next evolution of product identification, utilizing RFID technology to identify objects in a supply chain.

Based on current numbering schemes (EAN, VIN etc.), EPC is divided into numbers that differentiate the product and manufacturer of a given item. The difference between EPC and previous numbering systems lies in the usage of an extra set of digits to uniquely identify one object. According to the EPCGlobal company website, An EPC number contains:

A Header, identifying the length, type, structure, version and generation of EPC
The Manager Number, which identifies the company or company entity
Object Class, similar to a stock keeping unit or SKU
Serial Number, which is the specific instance of the Object Class being tagged
The Electronic Product Code promises to become the standard for global RFID usage.
