How Can I Download Information from RFID Readers?

Posted By RFID Journal, 11.27.2017

Specifically, how would I download it into a client's back-office software?

Warren,

It would depend on the reader being used. Some handheld readers store tag-read data in memory and then, when you cradle the device, the information is uploaded via Wi-Fi to a back-end server. Some passive UHF RFID readers export tag reads in XML format at regular intervals, or when the data is requested by middleware. Active RFID-based real-time location systems send data continuously to the host system so tag locations can be updated automatically.

Warren, Having a middle-ware which communicates both with readers and backend system would be a perfect solution. A middleware can collect data from readers, filterout the unwanted data and send only what's required by the backend. Many more filering criteria can be applied before data is sent to backend using - - Web services - CSV/XML/Json files - Direct backend DB access TrackSeal has such middleware. You can contact us on info@trackseal.com Thanks, Naresh naresh@trackseal.com
