RFID Hardware Components
When it comes to RFID hardware, there are 3 main components and each one plays a vital role.
- Printers which digitally encode accurate, complete data in the RFID tag. Printers can be desktop, high performance, or even mobile. Printers are the first step to tracking, managing, and optimizing assets, inventory, people, and more.
- Readers that can be fixed or handheld, depending on the application. It really depends on volume, configuration, density, and visibility. Readers give you instant visibility into your operations
- Antennas work with fixed readers to read tags. They provide the vital link between reader and tag, serving as the conduit that moves data back and forth. Antennas are what allow the communication to occur, enabling organizations to capture, move, and manage critical information to and from every point of business activity.
Another important part of any RFID system is supplies, including labels and tags. Learn more about supplies.
In addition to these 3 components and supplies, there are also accessories that can help you get the most out of your hardware.
