RFID in Industrial Environmentsmotorola fixed RFID readers

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology is indispensable in many industrial environments. If you operate in a challenging environment and need fast, accurate, real time data, talk to RMS Omega specialists about an RFID solution for tracking and managing your inventory, whether consumables or fixed assets.

Perhaps you use a manual system or barcode technology for inventory management but think you can do better. Absolutely! A typical RFID package consists of:

  • RFID tags which can store up to 100 times the data of barcodes, ensuring you can keep track of all the details you want about your inventory such as lot and serial number, size, manufacturer, vendor, expiry date, user, location on production line and anything else you might want to know
  • RFID printer which can be desk top or mobile and print a range of tags
  • RFID reader which can be active or passive, fixed or mobile, incorporated into a handheld computer or standalone, depending on your particular operational needs

RFID Features

You might be interested in some or all of these RFID system features:

  • High density of data storage on tags
  • Range of options for HF and UHF printers
  • High number of tags that can be read at any one time even in a busy environment with various production lines close to each other
  • Readers with diagnostic function to detect problems with recording and transmission of data
  • Flexibility according to the volume and movement of inventory
  • Capacity to function in harsh environments, inside or outdoors, including extreme temperatures and exposure to dust, dirt and chemicals
  • Capacity to tracking items being customized on a production line

RFID Benefits

The benefits of RFID inventory technology are immediately obvious, including:

  • Accuracy and speed of data capture and transmission, no matter what the industrial environment
  • Accurate, real time inventory counts result in eliminating stock shortages and over supply and preventing theft
  • Increased consistent productivity
  • Automated process means reduced opportunity for human intervention and error
  • Information for performance management and quality control

Our team of specialists can work with you to translate these features and benefits into increased customer satisfaction and profitability for your operation.

Components of RFID Tracking Systems

There are three main components to RFID tracking solutions:

  • Printers which digitally encode accurate, complete data in the RFID tag; either desk top or handheld to be at point-of-application
  • RFID tags or labels that are available with many options such as Gen1 or Gen2, HF or UHF, depending on what you need for storage capacity, substances in environment, reading distance and volume to be processed at one time
  • Readers that can be fixed or handheld, depending on flexibility needed for volume, configuration or storage facility, density of data images and visibility in the field; some devices can also read barcode images

Featured Solution Components

  • Motorola Symbol Zebra RFID Readers

    RFID Readers & Portals

    Improve operational visibility with enterprise-class and industrial high-performance readers.

    Motorola’s RFID portfolio includes a business and industrial line of fixed, handheld, hands-free and mobile RFID readers for inventory and asset management, complementing Motorola’s broader enterprise mobility portfolio of radio communication devices, wireless infrastructure, data capture and mobile-computing products.

  • Zebra RFID Printing

    RFID Printers

    Radio frequency identification (RFID) printers and encoders help you implement instant, measurable improvements in operating efficiency, accuracy, and supply chain visibility. You can digitally encode error-free data in an RFID tag or smart label, then wirelessly transmit that data to an RFID reader–even in harsh environments.


  • RFID Tags and Smart Labels

    RMS Omega provides RFID tags for Datamax, Intermec and Zebra printers. We offer stock HF and UHF, Class 1 Gen 2 inlay options and provide multiple face sheet, inlay and adhesive combinations for your custom RFID labeling needs.

    RFID smart label advantages:

    • Enhance process efficiencies
    • Solves difficult logistical tracking of inventory or equipment
    • Work efficiently even in harsh environments with excessive dirt, dust, moisture, and extreme temperatures
    • Simultaneous multiple read capability – rapid data acquisition
    • Reduce operation costs – Increases Revenue
