RFID: Description, Use and Benefits

Computers in recent years have become an integral part of our lives. We entrust them with more and more work in all areas. However, having taught a computer with commendable speed to process and securely store data, we have not yet solved the problem of collecting and entering information output into a computer control system by any process - be it production, trade, transportation, etc.

There are not so many technologies that bring with them drastic changes. RFID-systems are used in a variety of cases where you need to quickly and accurately control, track and account for the numerous movements of various objects.

Radio frequency recognition is carried out using special tags attached to the object, carrying identification and other information.

The main advantages of RFID technology:

• for RFID, no contact or direct visibility is needed;

• RFID tags are read quickly and accurately (approaching 100% identification);

• RFID can even be used in aggressive environments, and RFID tags can be read through dirt, paint, steam, water, plastic, wood;

• passive RFID tags have virtually unlimited lifespan;

• RFID tags carry a large amount of information and can be intelligent;

• RFID tags are almost impossible to fake;

• RFID tags can be not only readable, but also with recording information;

As with any digital device, a radio frequency tag has the potential to close a password to write and read operations. In addition, information can be encrypted. In the same label, you can simultaneously store closed and open data. This makes the radio frequency tag an ideal tool to protect goods and goods from counterfeit and theft.

RF tags are not required to be placed on the outside of the package (object). Therefore, they are better protected in the conditions of storage, processing and transportation of logistic units. Unlike a barcode, they are not affected by dust and dirt.
