Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

A circularly polarized, ultra high frequency (UHF) antenna—an antenna used by any UHF reader that is attached to a spectrum analyzer to measure the RF field received from the signal generator. A ¼ wave dipole, 915 MHz–antenna and a ground plane plate—an antenna that will radiate an RF field of 360 degrees. Two tripod stands—one stand to mount the antenna, the other to support the UHF antenna outside the interrogation zone. A laptop computer. Procedure Step 1 Read More

At Last-A Complete (and Successful) RFID Implementation


A radio frequency identification implementation is a major undertaking for any organization—a project with ample risk of failure. This entire series is a step-by-step guide to the process, with this final part including a comprehensive glossary of key terms for better understanding.

rf frequency  : Radio frequency identification. RF : Radio frequency. SA : Spectrum analysis ; refers to a range of values of a quantity or of a set of related quantities. Measurements of radio waves and the frequency emitted. Signal generator : A device that produces RF signals at preset frequencies, strengths, and durations. This will be hooked up to a ¼ wave dipole antenna via a coaxial cable; it will transmit the generated RF field. Smart label : This is a label that contains an RFID tag. It is considered Read More

RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part One: RFID Technology


For retailers and the other vertical industries, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags present enormous opportunities to improve supply chain operations, since real-time inventory control, tracking, and alerting capabilities could be very important advantages of RFID. As tagged inventory goes through ports, terminals, freight forwarders, and into a distribution center, the RFID tag should provide near real-time visibility of an item's whereabouts at all times.

To facilitate this dual mode of operation, RedPrairie has integrated RFID functionality with traditional processing so that distribution operations are independent of the data capture source, which should enable customers to take early advantage of RFID benefits, such as increased inventory visibility and accuracy, reduced labor costs and faster cycle times, without disrupting existing operations. Finally, as RFID technology matures, it will Read More

The Seven Types of Power Problems


Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime, software, and data corruption are the result of a problematic power supply. Compounding the problem is that there is no standardized way to describe power problems. Learn more about common power disturbances, what can cause them, and how to safeguard your critical equipment—all described in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard terms.

rf frequency  EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) and RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) can create inductance (induced current and voltage) on systems that carry data as shown in Figure 16. Since the data is traveling in digital format (ones and zeros that are represented by a voltage, or lack of voltage), excess voltage above data operating levels can make the appearance of data that does not belong or the opposite. A classic example of noise created by inductance is when network cabling is run through a drop ceiling Read More

RFID Workbench: Understanding the Basics


Radio frequency identification (RFID) helps actualize the perfect integration of logistical and commercial chains and its use is rising in the US and Europe among large companies; government departments; and industries. Setting up RFID requires a validation test on a defined perimeter that involves the processes that have the most direct impact on your activity to see how RFID will affect your environment.

IT Epidemic: Treating IT Client Relationship Breakdown


The frequency of breakdowns in the IT client relationship is reaching epidemic proportions. Indeed, an IT client breakdown is comparable to the onset of an illness. If caught early enough, treatment is often relatively painless. However, if left to advance to the later stages, or full maturity, the treatment will not only be invasive, but also require significant recovery time.

Taking Stock of TAKE Supply Chain Solutions - Part 1


Over the past several years I’ve repeatedly heard of a supply chain management (SCM) software and professional services company called ClearOrbit that was recently renamed TAKE Supply Chain.

Electronic Product Code (EPC): A Key to RFID


The real benefits of radio frequency identification will be achieved, when the integration of the EPC data will be a substantial part for the control of supply chain business processes.

rf frequency  (EPC): A Key to RFID Introduction In simple terms, the electronic product code (EPC) is a unique number that identifies a specific item in the supply chain by linking serial numbers to the product information stored in a central database, and which is stored on a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag. Once it is retrieved from the tag, it can be associated with dynamic data such as where an item originated or the date of its production. Users of EPC codes will have to purchase the numbers from Read More
