Where Can I Find an RFID Reader Able to Interrogate Tags From 3 Feet Away?

Posted By RFID Journal, 09.23.2015

I am looking for a producer of a wireless RFID interrogator that can read passive tags from this distance. Does such a reader exist?

—Name withheld


Most passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID handheld readers can interrogate tags from a distance of 3 feet (0.9 meter). The exceptions are very small units designed to hang from a keychain and others that plug into the audio port of a cell phone and use the phone's own battery. So you should contact Alien Technology, ATID, Convergence Systems Ltd., GAO RFID, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility, Technology Solutions (UK) Ltd., U Grok It, Zebra Technologies and others.

We are basically cartons manufacturing company and labelling the cartons mentioning the product and its quantity on each CFC carton. 35 cartons are packed on each pallet. As of now we are taking a print out of the labels on A4 paper through ordinary HP printer in black ink. Each A4 paper consists of around 16 or 24 labels. We are encountering mix up of 1 or 2 labels some times of other items while labelling the cartons and want to avoid it through RFID by quick data scrutinizing. The contents packed in the box are not of high value but we want to avoid this issue. I hope it is clear and can you suggest the most economical solution. Added to this we should able to print out contents so that it is read by our customer. The labels should able to withstand the environmental conditions during its storing, transporting.
