Radiochastotnaya identification (RFID)

intermec-rfid(1)Retailers and brands are turning to EPC RFID-enabled in order, to quickly and accurately identify, capture and share information about the product and the location.

Each RFID-tag uniquely identifies the object, so you can use the EPC-enabled RFID-tags to track individual objects, the movement across the supply chain.

Some companies also use the EPC to significantly improve their internal processes and logistics operations. for example, companies can use EPC RFID-based inventory tracking and reordering inventory.

What is RFID?

Radio Frequency Identification Technology (RFID) It is used to monitor and control objects using radio waves. This technology is part of a family of automatic identification and data collection technologies (AIDC), which starts from the traditional one-dimensional bar code and two-dimensional barcodes (such GS1 2D Datamatrix) It comes to RFID and beyond.

Each RFID application consists of RFID-tags, readers and computer systems. Tags consist of a microchip and an antenna, and come in various shapes and sizes.

What is EPC?

The Electronic Product Code (EPC) is a unique number, which is used to identify a particular element in the supply chain. This unique number (EPC) stored on the RFID-tag. EPC is very similar to a number of commercial products Global (GTIN), which is the standard bar code. EPC is a method, allowing the unique identification of the pallet, box or an individual product.

This new generation of barcode”, but unlike a barcode, who needs “line of sight”, EPC tags use radio waves for quick and effective reading product information.

What are the differences between RFID and EPC?

Radiochastotnaya identification (RFID) It is the common name for automatic identification using magnetic fields to transmit information from the "chips" to "readers". EPC is a standardized format RFID, GS1 developed specifically for use in the supply chain.

When you need to use RFID?

If you need to identify a large number of objects very quickly, the RFID can count and identify multiple objects simultaneously.

If you need to identify objects, which are part of other things (eg, part of body, medical kits, boxes of goods) – RFID does not require line of sight as the bar codes, so there is no need to disassemble the components of a particular product.

If you work in a hazardous environment, or in an open space (eg, next to the road or rail) – RFID can “read” at large distances, spared from harm employees.

If you can not afford to allocate human labor to meet the challenges for RFID identification is not required -podschet and scanning of objects of human participation is automatic.

If you need to add information, associated with the product for a long time – Most RFID tags are now writable, or may be recorded in the segment, therefore, information can be easily added to the RFID-tag after expiration of a long time.
