Why Use UHF RFID for Asset Tracking?

Keeping track of assets is crucial for any enterprise,such as like business is Healthcare, Industrial, Defense or Manufacturing. Asset tracking is a necessity for streamlining inventory and equipment, as you cannot effectively manage these assets without having their real-time visibility. OPP IOT RFID UHF Asset Tracking tags helps to deliver this visibility, and hence operational efficiency, resulting in significant financial benefits across all industries.

Why you should use RFID Asset Tracking tags:
* Increase inventory efficiency
* Save time and reduce errors with real-time inventory visibility.
* Optimize order picking efficiency and inventory placement.
* Track assets such as Returnable Containers.
* Boost revenue and output
* Track WIP and deploy resources in real-time to increase output and revenue.
* Instantly locate mission-critical equipment and tools when they are needed.
* Drastically reduce loss
* Never misplace equipment or inventory.
* Eliminate theft with scheduled motion alarm detection.
* Easily add Perimeter Security.
* Detect the presence of Inventory and Returnable Containers at Third-Party Manufacturers.

Etiquetas RFID

Las etiquetas de radiofrecuencia, también conocidas como etiquetas RFID, incorporan un circuito integrado que permite almacenar datos y recuperar datos remotos. La apariencia de las mismas es la de una etiqueta normal, en la que se imprime la información que se desea y que sirve de protección del circuito electrónico. También llevan una cara adhesiva que es la que permite su fijación en el lugar en el que tengan que estar colocadas.

Con este tipo de sistemas identificativos se consigue controlar el stock en todo momento, pero además permite conocer la localización del producto que incorpora la etiqueta y realizar un seguimiento de la entrega correcta de los pedidos.

Las etiquetas RFID son fáciles de gestionar, pues se leen a gran distancia y la información que contienen se puede modificar de forma muy rápida y sencilla. Se pueden fabricar con diferentes materiales, como PVC, papel, plástico, cartón o poliéster, de forma que se pueden elegir las más adecuadas para el lugar en el que se van a colocar.

RFID radio frequency identification technology

Radio Frequency IDentification is a wireless communication technology, via radio signals to identify specific goals and to read and write data without identification between mechanical or optical contact with the specific goals of the system.

Radio signals through the tune into a radio frequency electromagnetic fields, the data from the attached to the labels on the goods sent, to automatically identify and track the items. Some labels issued in recognition from the recognizer can get energy in the electromagnetic field, does not need batteries also have tags have their own power supply, and can send out radio waves (tune into a radio-frequency electromagnetic fields).

Tag contains the electronic storage of information, within a few metres can be identified. With different barcodes is that RFID tags do not need recognition of sight, can also be embedded Tracking objects.

OPP IOT UHF tag application in Asset Tracking

Asset Tracking uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to locate assets. UHF RFID tags take the guesswork out of Asset Tracking. These tags are attached to the things that matter most to your business, anything from computers to livestock. In turn, the RFID Tags broadcast the locations of these items. This gives you real-time information on the status, movement, and position of every asset.

As an example, in the Automobile Manufacturing industry, suppliers struggle with locating returnable containers. By using RFID Asset Tracking, an enhanced visibility of the containers is provided, giving you the ability to locate them within the expanse of your supply chain. This ultimately reduces your cost of ownership for returnable containers and puts knowledge in your hands.

RFID Readers

An RFID reader, also known as an interrogator, is a device that provides the connection between the tag data and the enterprise system software that needs the information. The reader communicates with tags that are within its field of operation, performing any number of tasks including simple continuous inventorying, filtering (searching for tags that meet certain criteria), writing (or encoding) to selected tags, etc.

The reader uses an attached antenna to capture data from tags. It then passes the data to a computer for processing. Just like RFID tags, there are many different sizes and types of RFID readers. Readers can be affixed in a stationary position in a store or factory, or integrated into a mobile device such as a portable, handheld scanner. Readers can also be embedded in electronic equipment or devices, and in vehicles.

RFID For Supply Chain

Using RFID technology in Supply Chain applications optimizes visibility, security, and efficiency across every industrial sector. Tagging cases and pallets with RFID tags or labels helps dramatically to improve warehouse management while reducing out-of-stocks and improving sales.

RFID technology creates transparency to ensure continuous optimization of the manufacturing processes, compliance with legal regulations and standards as well as achieving maximum quality for the end consumer.

Almost any enterprise can use RFID technology to automate Supply Chain Management and Transportation Management functions such as proof of delivery, automated replenishment, and inventory tracking. RFID data can be easily incorporated into back-end enterprise planning (ERP) systems and exchanged between trading partners as a component of their EDI messages.

The RFID-enabled Supply Chain provide detailed information about the status and position of the goods, thus reducing costs and speeding up consumer protection.

Why UHF anti-metal tag?

Mounting or embedding RFID tags on metal is a tricky proposition for the uninformed, and the informed for that matter.

Metal surfaces reflect energy emitted from RFID readers and create interference for RFID tag antennas, which means the tag isn’t able to receive power and transmit information; however, specific RFID tags will work around metal surfaces.

RFID companies have patented technology that allows RFID to work when attached to metal surfaces and even embedded within metal products.

As long as you choose the correct RFID equipment for your situation and application, you won’t need to worry about interference from metal.
