Views:1     Author:Site Editor     Publish Time: 2018-05-14      Origin:Site

The custom RFID tag has wide applications, used for warehouse and distribution management, anti-counterfeit protection, laundry tracking application, asset tracking, livestock management, microchip identification, IT asset tracking, etc.. Do you know how to choose the best RFID tags label for your application? Now, we will show you 6 key factors to consider.

1. The frequency range of RFID Tag

The RFID inlay has three common kinds frequency: 134.2Khz, 13.56Mhz, 860Mhz.

Working in the general operating frequency of the low-frequency sensor from 120KHz to 134KHz, low frequency can pass through objects any material without reducing its read range, except the impact of metal materials.

2. The usage environment of RFID Tag

It is true that there is no universal technology or RFID tag which can overcome the issue of environment. Some RFID tag frequencies and packaging types are more suitable for using with neutral materials such as cardboard or plastic. Other RFID tags are specially designed to be read in metal environments or in the presence of water. The current performance of these RFID tags is comparable to that of classic inlays on neutral materials.

3. The mounting surface of RFID Tag

Each RFID tag is designed to be applied to a specific set or sub-set of materials. RFID tags generally work well on materials such as plastic, wood, or cardboard, but only certain tags have the ability to work well on more complex materials such as metal or glass. RFID tags that can be mounted on metal or glass usually cost more than typical RFID labels or RFID inlays.

4. The size of RFID Tag

Sunorient has own factory. So we are in different sizes and shapes to better accommodate for unique applications. Depending on the specific application and the amount of space on the object to be tagged, size can play a critical role in determining the ideal tag. At the same time, we have the customized size of RFID tags.

5. The read range of RFID Tag

True physical tag maximum read distance is determined by the individual RFID reader and antenna power, the actual Integrated Circuit used in the RFID sticker tag, the material and thickness of material the tag is coated or covered with, the type of antenna the RFID tag uses, the material of the tag is attached to and more! 

134.2 RFID tags which produce read distances of 1-2 meters in industrial environments.  

13.56 readers with RF power outputs up to 10 watts for multiple antenna connections and over 1 meter tag read distances. 

Ultra High Frequency(UHF) Passive RFID Tags - minimum read distance of over 1 meter or 3 feet.  

Gen2 tags can have a read range of up to 12 meters or 37 feet.

6. Custom Printing & Encoding

Custom printing and encoding do not necessarily narrow down the RFID tag choices; however, both are important to consider before purchasing. If your application is customer facing, custom printing may be a feasible option to keep your RFID tags looking professional with a logo or a barcode on the front. Custom encoding may be beneficial if you lack the time, equipment, or manpower to encode your RFID tags with a custom sequence of data. Access control applications are a primary example of where custom encoding plays a crucial role.

These are 6 key factors for the custom RFID tags. If you have any question for the RFID tag, welcome to consult us by any time - a professional China custom RFID tags manufacturer and supplier.
