Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags are small smart devices that use low-power radio waves to receive, store and transmit data to nearby readers. A microchip or integrated circuit (IC), an antenna, and a substrate or protective material layer that binds all of the components together make up RFID tags.
RFID tags can be passive, active, or semi-passive (battery-assisted passive) (BAP). Passive RFID tags are powered by electromagnetic energy transmitted from an RFID reader instead of an internal power supply. So they work without batteries. Active RFID tags have their own transmitter and power supply (battery) on the tag. Semi-passive or battery-assisted passive (BAP) tags have a power source built into their design. RFID tags are also available in three frequency ranges: Ultra-High Frequency (UHF), High Frequency (HF), and Low Frequency (LF). The best example of active tags is the OGS tags that we use in our vehicles. The HGS tags that we employ in our vehicles are the best example of passive tags.
RFID tags come in a variety of sizes and designs and can be affixed to surfaces. Wet inlays, dry inlays, labels, wristbands, hard tags, cards, stickers, and fobs are just a few of the form factors available for RFID tags. Altis offers branded RFID tags suitable for many different environments and applications, including logistics, supply chain, race scheduling, access control, laundry management, vehicle tracking, and IT asset tracking.
