RFID antennas

RFID Technology Offers Many Benefits

If you own a business or even if you’re in charge of a certain unit within an enterprise, you probably want to know what and how many assets are there, where are they located, who is using them, etc. How many times a year do you count your inventory? Once? Maybe twice? And how accurate do you think it is?

Asset tracking is essential for any business and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) can often be the perfect way to count that inventory.

What Are RFID Tags

It comes as no surprise, we humans are fallible. We forget what’s in our closets. We misplace our cell phones. We’d lose our heads if they weren’t attached!

Such fallibility is unfortunate in our personal lives, but it can be much worse for our companies.

But, then modern technology comes to the rescue.

Do RFID Systems Read In Real Time?

When considering an RFID system, one of the most attractive features is its ability to provide data in real time. But what is real time, since whenever we read RFID data - or any data for that matter - its immediacy is, by its very nature, past time. As good as antennas are, they cannot solve the time delay problem in a passive tag, active tag or BAP tag systems because a time delay always exists - albeit a very small time delay.
