Issuance,Marketing & Recharging Of RFID Tags
What is RFID Tag
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) Tagging is an ID system that uses small radio frequency identification devices for identification and tracking purposes. The Tag contains electronically stored information. An RFID tagging system includes the tag itself, a read/write device, and a host system application for data collection, processing, and transmission.
RFID tags that contain their own power source are known as active tags. Those without a power source are known as passive tags. A passive tag is briefly activated by the Radio Frequency (RF) scan of the RFID reader. The electrical current is small -- generally just enough for transmission of an ID number. Active tags have more memory and can be read at greater ranges.
Increasingly, RFID tagging is used as an alternative to bar code technology. Although more expensive to use than the bar code stickers, RFID tags don't get dirty or fall off or require an unobstructed line-of-sight between the tag and the reader.
