How to Choose the Right RFID System: A Step-by-Step Guide for Energy Companies
Published: September 2011, updated June 2015
Energy companies face special challenges in choosing the proper radio frequency identification system for their needs because their operations are complex, and they often operate in harsh environments. Now, for the first time, RFID Journal provides a guide to choosing the right system for the needs of energy, mining and utility companies, and explains the pros and cons of different RFID solutions for different applications.
This report details the many types of RFID technologies, including passive low-frequency (LF), high-frequency (HF) and ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) 433 MHz, 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz active systems; ultra-wideband (UWB); ZigBee; Wi-fi; and more. Plus, it features descriptions covering a wide variety of hybrid tags, including tags that combine RFID with infrared, GPS and sensors. This ultimate guide will help ensure that you choose the most suitable system to do the job at the lowest cost—get this newly released report now, at this special rate.
RFID Journal's editors created this special report to help energy companies choose the RFID technology that can best meet their needs in both the short and long term. It is designed to walk hospital executives through the process of determining their system requirements, and then matching those requirements to the proper RFID system. This document provides detailed information regarding the performance characteristics, standards, strengths, weaknesses and common applications for each type of passive, active and battery-assisted RFID system.
No report can conclusively determine the right RFID system for an energy company's particular needs, but this guide will help those charged with selecting a system narrow the options. Our goal is to reduce the time businesses spend researching the appropriate system, and to provide the information they need to choose a systems integrator and, perhaps, hardware and software providers (a good systems integrator will help with the technology-selection process).
