Active RFID, a perfect solution for tracking & monitoring
All about Active-RFID that you need to know
Businesses have a plethora of excellent tools at their disposal in today’s rapidly expanding technological environment to assist them in achieving their objectives. One of such technologies is RFID. A wide range of everyday uses, including store security tags, employee badges as well as inventory management systems, payment terminals and even animal identification have RFID tags incorporated in them.
What is Active RFID?
Active RFID makes use of battery-powered tags that broadcast their identity to a variety of access points or readers on the network. In many cases, the position of each tagged object is sent from the access point to a gateway over a network connection. A variety of asset management and real-time locating systems will benefit from the usage of active RFID technology.
Beacons, transponders and intelligent RFID are the three distinct forms of active radio frequency identification (RFID). Each of these forms of active RFID is extremely distinct from the others and lends itself to a different set of applications than the others.
Why use Active RFID?
For real-time location monitoring, active RFID is a popular option. The following factors make this technology more appealing:
- Extended Battery Life: With a battery life having an average of three to five years, active RFID’s tend to have a lifespan up to 10 years!
- Cost Efficient: The total system cost of Active RFID is more economical compared to the available alternatives like WiFi RFID.
- Increased scalability: Active RFID systems are very scalable because of their great read range tags which can be detected even when it is 100 feet away!
Hence, Active RFID technology, as an inherent component of the Internet of Things, has unquestionably made real-time location services (RTLS) solutions easier, more cost-effective and highly dependable. The RFID industry is increasing at an exponential rate, as you could expect and they will continue to mold the future by serving as an integral part building ground-breaking technologies that will have a profound impact on the course of human history.
