RFID - RF Stock Management Controller

RF Stock Management - RFID Controller

The Proteus RFID Stock Management Controller provides the ability to record the unique details of each stock item that has an RFID Tag/Label. The tags are read by the RFID Reader to record the location and movement of stock into, around and out of the warehouse providing complete track and traceability of stock. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a technology to electronically record the presence of an object using radio signals. It is used for inventory control or timing sporting events. RFID is not a replacement for the barcoding, but a complement for distant reading of codes. The technology is used for automatically identifying a person, a package or an item. To do this, it relies on RFID tags. These are small transponders (combined radio receiver and transmitter) that will transmit identity information over a short distance, when asked. The other piece to make use of RFID tags is an RFID tag reader. It is useful in the warehouse environment if you have products that do not require line of sight to read the bar codes. After leaving the warehouse, stock can be tracked further along its journey as it passes through gates that have the ability to emit radio signals and receive signals back.

The other piece to make use of RFID tags is an RFID tag reader. Tags are either active tags, passive tags or battery assisted tags.  An active tag has an on-board battery and periodically transmits its ID signal. A battery assisted passive (BAP) has a small battery on board and is activated when in the presence of a RFID reader. A passive tag is cheaper and smaller because it has no battery. Instead, the tag uses the radio energy transmitted by the reader as its energy source.

It is useful in the warehouse environment if you have products that do not require line of sight to read the bar codes.

After leaving the warehouse, stock can be tracked further along its journey as it passes through gates that have the ability to emit radio signals and receive signals back.
