RFID applications are about to break out. What factors need to be considered when applying RFID technology?
Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology is being applied to more industrial scenarios. Factors to consider when applying RFID include distance, speed, and data transfer rate. Radio frequency identification (RFID) systems for industrial environments have evolved over the years since the 1970s. Since then, every new development has been designed to increase performance and extend the possibilities of various applications. For each industry, there are specific factors that need to be taken into account when selecting the most appropriate RFID system for different applications.
Factors to consider when applying RFID Generally, three main aspects need to be considered to achieve a balance point for RFID applications. They are: the distance between the tag and the head; the speed at which the object can pass in front of them; the data transfer rate.
Although RFID system manufacturers offer some complex formulas, there are online configurations available that allow users to mimic their applications and find optimal settings.
Like many innovative concepts in the field of automation control, the automotive industry has become one of the key industries for the development of RFID applications driven by the consumption of personalized vehicles. Today, consumers can determine exactly what will fit in the car they buy. This, to a certain extent, necessitates the use of information about individual characteristics that needs to be matched to the vehicle to mark each vehicle, providing transparency for each time period throughout the manufacturing process.
For automotive manufacturing that uses almost all of the classic manufacturing processes, the challenges are unique. In addition to mechanical engineering, factors that may be encountered include transportation technology, processing technology, logistics, and stamping and general metal processing techniques. These techniques add more differentiation to the internal associated process, so you'll run into more complex situations.
RFID Applications in the Automotive Industry Data carriers or tags that can withstand high temperatures are an important added value for systems offered to automotive manufacturers. They are also increasingly used in coating curing processes where data carriers can be used because they can pass through the furnace on the vehicle rails. These data carriers can operate at temperatures of 200 degrees Celsius and do not require cooling prior to read and write operations.
A good system will provide tags with EEPROM and FRAM memory, which can provide almost unlimited number of read and write operations. Many traditional RFID systems only have the ability to read and write tags statically, but better systems can perform fast read and write, typically at a rate of 0.5 milliseconds per byte.
For early system developers, producing a read/write head with a usable sensing range is a major challenge. However, it has now become possible to use a head with a sensing range of 500 mm.
RFID for the food and beverage industry Currently, for the catering industry, special heads with a speed of IP69K are already common, and future developments are data carriers that can be mounted directly on metal. Tracking and traceability are critical to many manufacturing companies today, and these can be achieved through the use of RFID's multifaceted capabilities.
The increased demand for RFID technology has led to the emergence of more cost-effective solutions. New technologies have also played an important role in this round of growth. For example, advances in printed electronics have helped create new levels of thin, flexible RFID tags that can be combined with printed sensors, printed batteries, thin film photovoltaic solar cells, and other technologies. The antenna design has also been improved to improve the performance of the tag.
RFID for monitoring and asset management Integrating RFID with passive sensors that measure temperature, humidity, pressure and vibration provides more information for asset monitoring and management.
RFID can be applied to most new applications in major industrial sectors. In the past, managing cloud traffic from thousands of tags brought big problems before cloud technology came. Now, with cloud-based applications and services, the burden of IT support can be reduced, and companies can deploy centralized management and centralized implementation without the traditional support and deployment costs.
