An RFID tag, also known as an electronic tag, a smart tag, or a transponder, is an electronic identification technology which does not need to be seen to be read. It is possible to read and write information, beyond a simple serial number, stored in the memory on the chip. These two characteristics set them apart from bar codes.
An RFID system is composed of an RFID tag, a reader or encoder which can be used to read or write data to the chip on the tag, and a computer system able to collect and process this data.
An electronic tag consists of an electronic chip connected to an antenna. This can function at low or high frequencies, and may be passive or active. Passive tags have read-only functionality, while active tags make it possible to read from and write data to the chip.
An RFID tag may have several forms, depending on the criteria defined for the desired tracking project.
We offer a wide selection of tags and LF, HF and UHF inlays, depending on your tracking needs and constraints.
These tags and inlays may be complexed, printed and decorated with various support materials (foams, polycarbonates, polyesters, etc.), to ensure total protection and personalisation of your RFID tags.
Don’t hesitate to contact us with any request. Gravic will assist and advise you on your complete RFID project, relying on all our partners.
ELECTRONIC RFID TAG
An RFID tag, also known as an electronic tag, smart tag, or transponder, is an electronic identifier that does not need to be viewed in order to be read. It is therefore possible to read and write information other than a simple serial number in the chip’s memory. These two features distinguish it from a barcode. You can trust Gravic Group, an expert in printed and stamped material, to help you deliver your RFID tag project
How does an RFID tag work?
An RFID system consists of an RFID tag, a drive or encoder that can be used to read or write data on the tag’s chip, and an IT system allowing these data to be collected and processed.Not to be confused with an engravable tag, an electronic tag consists of an electronic chip connected to an antenna. It can operate at high or low frequencies and be passive or active. A passive tag is ready-only, whilst an active tag allows data on the chip to be read and written.
What are the different types of rfid tag?
An RFID tag can come in different forms based on the criteria defined by the level of traceability you wish to aim for in your project.We offer a wide range of RFID tags and LF, HF and UHF inlays to meet your traceability needs and obligations. These tags and inlays can be bound, printed and decorated with different materials (foam, polycarbonates, polyesters etc.) to ensure full protection and personalisation for your RFID tags.Feel free to contact us if you have any enquiries. All our partners at Gravic will be happy to give you help and advice for your global RFID project. Also discover all our adhesive tag making services.
