How to Choose the Right RFID System
RFID Journal's new step-by-step guide will take the complexity out of choosing from the many options available.
Jan 17, 2011—By my count, there are 27 different types of radio frequency identification technology, hybrid systems that combine RFID and something else, and alternative systems that can be used to identify and track objects. The good news is there are many options, but the bad news is that sorting through these systems to discern which is best suited to your particular application and environment can be challenging.
Last week, we announced the publication of a new report, "How to Choose the Right RFID System: A Step-by-Step Guide," which aims to take the mystery—and the time and labor—out of trying to figure out which RFID system is right for a company's specific applications (see RFID Journal Offers Guide to Choosing the Right RFID System).
As I received more calls like this, I realized that we needed to put together a step-by-step guide that could help all of our readers determine the type of RFID technology they required. The end result is "How to Choose the Right RFID System."
The report is broken down into nine sections. Part 1 explains the major types of RFID systems available. Here, we generally discuss passive, active and battery-assisted technology, what those terms mean and how they differ, thus setting the context for the rest of the document.
