RFID

浩亭的 RFID(射频识别)系统可在要求严苛和恶劣的工业环境中识别金属容器、机器、工具、列车、具体部件或其他资产。

为了实现过程的数字化,必须能够正确识别组件、工件载体和工具。生产中吞吐时间的优化、铁路交通中的准时性分析以及简化产品的经典标识:这些任务越来越多地通过 RFID 来实现。

RFID 芯片与 RFID 标签的相互作用

浩亭提供的 UHF RFID 产品具有您已在我们的连接器中所习惯的坚固性和可靠性。我们的产品组合包括面向交通运输应用的特殊应答器(称为 RFID 标签),以及用于容器/工具识别和智能标签的金属应答器。我们的阅读器(均具有读写功能)和天线还可以满足几乎所有工业要求;近距离、栅极应用和宽温度范围是浩亭产品的常见特性。

使用我们的产品,您可以在没有视线的情况下进行分组读取,将阅读器添加到叉车上,当然还可以将信息写入应答器。我们的硬件始终根据最新的 RFID 标准运行。我们还提供具有 WLAN、低功耗蓝牙和 GSM 的产品,因此可以确保您的投资完美适合未来的需求。

Ha-VIS RFID 中间件

令人信服不只是我们的硬件 – 我们的 Ha-VIS 中间件还可以帮助您将这些阅读器连接到您的基础架构。它使您能够管理多个阅读器、操作数据字符串、连接到更高级别的系统(例如 ERP 系统、数据库)、控制输入/输出等。该软件可以直接在我们的阅读器 (RF-R350) 上运行,也可以作为容器或作为服务器基础架构上的虚拟机在我们的 MICA® 上独立运行。如果您对自己完成集成没有信心,我们很乐意通过我们胜任的合作伙伴(我们的 MICA® 网络)为您提供支持。他们可以帮助您解决特定问题,根据您的意愿将我们的硬件集成到您的环境中。

通常,您的要求与我们在生产或物流、透明流程、运营数据验证、降低成本和运营可靠性改进方面的要求相同。这是因为我们在供应链管理中也使用 RFID 硬件来实现这些目标。

RFID FAQ

What does RFID mean?

RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification It involves a process which uses radio waves to read or write data of an electromagnetically coupled data carrier (transponder).

How does an RFID work?

Put in simple terms a reader for the UHF frequency band uses an antenna to send a signal and power to its environment. An exchange of data can take place if a transponder can be activated by the power. The transponder also sends signals in response to the commands of the reader. The advantage of RFID is that it does not need a line-of-sight connection between reader and transponder, such as optical processes using barcodes or QR codes. Moreover, the data contents of the transponder can be read as well as changed as required.

Where is RFID used?

The application areas differ greatly; they are used wherever it makes sense or is of interest to identify objects or living beings. RFID is the first choice particularly when a line-of-sight connection is not possible between the objects or the data needs to be changed.

For example: access control, tool ID, pallet tracking, theft protection, tier identification, product identification

What is an RFID reader?

An RFID reader is a piece of hardware for recording and generally also for writing to transponders.

What is a RFID-transponder?

A transponder is a small data carrier. It is normally attached to the object to be identified and contains a small circuit with a memory area and an antenna for reading and writing. Passive transponders do not require a battery. They function using energy harvesting, i.e. they draw the required energy solely from the energy provided by radio waves. This enables them to be used self-sufficiently and maintenance-free over long periods of time.

Does RFID also function on metal?

Special conditions require special solutions. Special transponders (on-metal transponders) are tuned to compensate for the effects of metal or they provide a physical distance to the metal.

What is the difference between RFID and UHF RFID?

There is no difference, UHF is merely a frequency band for RFID. In addition, there are other popular RFID frequency bands, such as LF (low frequency) or HF (high frequency). UHF stands for Ultra High Frequency and works in the frequency range from approx. 850 to 950 MHz and above.

What are the advantages over other ID methods, in particular barcodes?

RFID does not necessarily need a line of sight with the object to be identified. The transponder can be read and written to as long as it is in range. On the other hand, a barcode must always be "seen" by the barcode reader.

Normally, a RFID TAG can be overwritten repeatedly, however, with a printed barcode changes are unfortunately not possible. Another big advantage of RFID (particularly UHF) is bulk reading, which enables quick detect of multiple transponders (up to a few hundred depending on the reader). For example, you can use a device to detect the objects on a pallet while driving by it in a forklift truck. With barcode systems, this could only be done for a relatively small number of objects using sophisticated vision systems and only with line-of-sight.
