HellermannTyton has developed a range of RFID cable ties, accessories and RFID readers to make your RFID tracking and identification processes more efficient.
What is RFID? Radio frequency identification, or RFID, is a generic term for technologies that use radio waves to automatically identify people or objects. There are several methods of identification, but the most common is to store a serial number that identifies a person or object, and perhaps other information, on a microchip that is attached to an antenna (the chip and the antenna together are called an RFID transponder or an RFID tag). The antenna enables the chip to transmit the identification information to a reader. The reader converts the radio waves reflected back from the RFID tag into digital information that can then be passed on to computers that can make use of it.
Benefits of RFID technology: •Increase efficiency in production: Many steps are eliminated because cable ties with RFID tags Increase efficiency in production (fastening, bundling, labelling, identification product safety, product RFID tracking and much more.) •Reliably label and identify products also in harsh environments: stored information on the RFID tag remains readable even in extreme production and operational environments at any time. •Marking and identify inaccessible parts with RFID cable ties are a reliable alternative when conventional identification such as barcode labels can be read only with difficulty – e.g. through space restrictions or can’t be labelled because of material reasons.
