RFID, Inc., an Aurora, Co.-based developer and manufacturer of RFID tags and readers, has launched a new RFID ecommerce website, at which visitors can purchase RFID tags, readers and antenna hardware. The products include low-frequency (LF, 125 KHz), high-frequency (HF, 13.56 MHz) and ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) passive RFID tags and readers, as well as active RFID products operating at 433.92 MHz.

“With more than 1,000 different product SKUs [stock-keeping units], this site is, without a doubt, the most comprehensive RFID ecommerce site in the world,” says James Heurich, RFID, Inc.’s CEO. “Our forte, for 34 years, has been as a provider of custom RFID tags and readers addressing the needs of users or OEMs [original equipment manufacturers] with unique applications demanding product that doesn’t currently exist.

The new website allows users to choose from a plethora of off-the-shelf RFID tags and readers, and visitors can request customized products and free RFID consulting. Down the line, the company plans to add product manuals, drawings and links to chip specifications for each RFID tag it sells.

RFID, Inc. was founded in 1984. It initially offered LF tags and readers operating at 125 KHz and 148 KHz. LF hardware continues to be a major source of its revenue, but the firm has grown into the HF and UHF markets throughout the years, including applications of RFID-enabled processes on factory floors.

The company offers high-temperature tags, custom medical RFID solutions, automated pharmaceutical refill centers, solutions for mining (specifically stacker-reclaimers), CNC tooling and molds, automated guided vehicles and carts, consumables and product authentication (to defeat counterfeiting), personnel and asset tracking, warehousing, supply chain, automatic vehicle identification—both for gated entrances and for identifying trucks on scales—and the entertainment and hospitality industries, such as museums and theme parks.

RFID, Inc.’s LF Smart Antennas are specifically designed for the challenging application of automated pharmaceutical refill centers. According to the company, 97 percent of all pharmacy centers have installed this technology, which can operate on metal or in a high-metal environment, and at great speeds, without interference or crosstalk issues among RFID readers located within 3 inches of one another.

“We need to make RFID solutions easier to price and acquire,” Heurich states, “and I am confident our new ecommerce site does that.”
