SATSAFE RFID SOLUTIONS FOR SECURITY
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is another SatSafe location-based technology that electronically records the presence of an object using radio signals. It is used for inventory control or timing sporting events. RFID is not a replacement for the barcoding, but a complement for distant reading of codes.
SatSafe provides a wide range of RFID solutions which are used for automatically identifying a person, a package or an item. To do this, it relies on RFID tags – small transponders which transmit identity information over a short distance, when asked. The other part of the RFID system is the RFID tag reader.
An RFID tag is an object that can be applied to or incorporated into a product, animal, or person for the purpose of identification and tracking using radio waves. Some tags can be read from several metres away and beyond the line of sight of the reader. Most tags carry a plain text inscription and a barcode as complements for direct reading and for cases of any failure of radio frequency electronics.
Most RFID tags contain at least two parts. One is an integrated circuit for storing and processing information, modulating and de-modulating a radio-frequency (RF) signal, and other specialized functions. The second is an antenna for receiving and transmitting the signal.
There are generally two types of RFID tags: active RFID tags, which contain a battery, and passive RFID tags, which have no battery.
