Choosing RFID For Industrial Applications; Part 5


Share

In the first four parts of this blog series, I provided an introduction to the 3 most common frequencies/systems used in industrial RFID, detailing Low Frequency, High Frequency and Ultra High Frequency based systems. In this fifth and final post, I will provide some application guidance and criteria to consider when choosing your next Industrial RFID system.

In the first three parts of this blog series, I provided an introduction to the 3 most common frequencies/systems used in industrial RFID, then detailing Low Frequency (LF) and High Frequency (HF) based systems. In this post, I will provide more details specifically on UHF or Ultra High Frequency based RFID.

Often times those of us in the RFID industry are so close to it that we forget that there are those just being introduced to it and want to just learn about the basics. And I am then reminded that it is our responsibility to help educate people not just on the high level conceptual use, but also continue to touch upon the technology itself. So I will dedicate the next blog posts to a 5 part series explaining the basics about RFID and just as important, what you should think about when considering RFID and discussing where the technology can be used. In this first post, I will introduced the most common frequency based technology used for industrial based RFID as well as begin to define the difference between them.

3 Important Things To Know For High-Temp RFID

Over the years, the use of RFID has expanded to cover many new applications and industries and with each new advance in range, speed and standardization, the technology becomes more widely accepted and cost effective. But one application need, especially for industrial RFID users has been there almost from the beginning. That is the use and survivability of RFID tags in high temperature applications. When I talk about high-temp RFID tags, it generally means temperatures above 120° C (248° F) to over 200° C (392° F) or higher. There are three important factors that you want to know for using RFID in these temperature conditions.

Industrial RFID becomes just another I/O point with IO-Link

Imagine if you no longer had the additional cost and complexity of connecting configurable and analog sensors, actuators and even RFID separately from the rest of your standard discrete I/O (inputs/outputs). Instead, you just plugged them in using standard low-cost 3 conductor cables with all your other discrete I/O into an I/O block. This is what the new industrial connectivity standard called IO-Link provides. Continue reading
