RFID has become the easiest way to keep track of your assets and maintain its database. Most companies store relevant information about their assets through RFID. Every company needs to track its assets! 

How RFID based Asset Tracking process works?

Companies can keep a record of their assets; also can track their movement in and out of a gateway through RFID. For Example- A warehouse full of inventory, any company would require a record of the assets. RFID is the easiest way to record and maintain the data of multiple objects at once. The company can tag every object in the warehouse; each tag consists of a unique identity number to represent the tagged material. We can manually store the data on the IC of RFID tag and retrieve it automatically using a reader when required. The type of data stored on the tag could include- a type of material, date, time, etc.

The RFID systems provide a non-contact, non-line of sight method of automatically gathering, inspecting and distributing detailed production information and are capable of reading through metallic and non-metallic objects, such as plastic conveyors. Built for reliable operation under rugged conditions, RFID systems take on a wide range of operating conditions, including harsh environments, where barcoding is not practical. RFID Tags, RFID antennas and RFID controllers are all industrially ruggedized to withstand wet, oily and other adverse conditions.

Benefits of RFID based Asset tracking:

  • No Direct Line of Sight – An RFID reader doesn’t need a line of sight for it to function; it just has to be within the range of the tag.
  • Durability- These tags are capable of reading through metallic and non-metallic objects, such as plastic conveyors. Also, works under rugged conditions and harsh environment.
  • Alignment- Read reliability of RFID is not affected by a misaligned tag.
  • Reusability- Read/write tags can be modified by the RFID reader, making it possible to add or change information stored on the tag when necessary.
