What are RFID Tags?

RFID tags are small integrated circuits equipped with antennas that transmit data using radio waves. There are 2 broad types of RFID tags, including active and passive RFID tags.

Active RFID tags have a power source and can transmit data at longer distances.

Passive RFID tags draw power from RFID readers and are ideal for shorter-range applications.

Semi-passive RFID tags are RFID tags that have a battery to power certain functionalities like onboard sensors or data storage, but rely on the RFID reader’s energy for communication and transmission of data.

RFID tags are revolutionizing the way businesses manage their inventory, from small enterprises to large-scale operations.

Do You Use Active or Passive Tags?

UHF (Ultra High Frequency) RFID tags fall under the category of passive RFID tags. UHF RFID technology is widely used for a variety of applications due to its longer read range and higher data transfer rates compared to lower frequency RFID tags.

Each passive RFID tag is well-suited for applications that require longer read distances and higher data transmission speeds, making them ideal for use cases such as inventory management, supply chain tracking, and PPE tracking.

With UHF RFID tags being passive, they do not have their own power source and rely on energy harvested from the RFID reader’s signal to operate. This makes UHF RFID tags cost-effective and practical for large-scale implementations where a high number of tags need to be deployed.
