RFID Tags - What You Need To Know Before Ordering

Various RFID Inlays

RFID (radio frequency identification) inlays use microchips embedded into an antenna to automate tracking. Radio waves are transmitted from the inlay to the RFID scanner/reader to communicate various information.

There are many ways to implement RFID to improve workplace efficiency. With the wide range of RFID inlays, finding the right inlay that works for you can be challenging! To best use this technology to the fullest, it is essential to research and test to find the right RFID system for you! Here are some things to keep in mind before ordering your RFID tags or labels…

What problem are you solving with RFID?

Are you using RFID to track a few high-dollar items, or implementing them across your entire warehouse? Knowing how you will use RFID, you can select an RFID inlay that will suit your needs. RFID is efficient in reducing high labor costs, reducing data errors in item identification and handling, accurately tracking items, and storing large amounts of data.

What is the timeline for starting your RFID project?

Are you using Passive or Active RFID tags?

What environment will the tag be in?

At what distances do you need to be able to read the tag?

What is the frequency of the RFID Inlay you wish to use?

What are the maximum and minimum dimensions of the tag?

To what surface will you affix the tag?

How are you going to encode (write data) your tags?

Will anything need to be printed on the tag?

If you are using an RFID printer/encoder, what model are you using?
