Your answer to your RFID requirements

RFID Technologies CC manufacture and supply a variety of UHF RFID readers and transponders to clients worldwide in 50 countries.

RFID Technologies' UHF RFID systems are among the most advanced systems available.

RFID Technologies supply fixed readers, portable readers, RFID-radar systems and passive and battery assisted transponders. Passive (no battery - 100 year life) transponders(tags) are in the form of credit card sized transponders, thin wire laundry transponders and transponders for attaching to notebooks computers and metal objects. Battery assisted transponders are in the form of stick tags and claymore tags.

RFID-radar systems are RTLS (Real Time Locating Systems) giving ID information and 2D position information.

UHF transponder systems offer long reading ranges with passive transponders having operating ranges between 8 and 24 meters, while with battery assisted transponders ranges up to 40 meters. The system allows many transponders to be in the read zone at the same time (up to 800), fast read rates (up to 70 per second), at speeds up to 300kph, and are simple to use and interface.

UHF RFID systems are data capture devices for computer systems. When a transponder enters the reader zone, the transponder is powered by the energising field from the reader and passes its identity information to the reader which then passes the information to the connected computer within milliseconds.

UHF radio energy passes through many non-metalic materials and is reflected by metalic and hard objects like walls and floors. This means that the energy penetrates most situationa and can read transponders often even if they are screened visually.

UHF RFID systems are used in many different types of applications - situations where a computer system needs to identify items passing through its reading zone. Applications such as access control, asset tracking, notebook tracking, cattle and sheep farming, sports timing, identifying uniquely trees in a forest, logistic applications, time and attendance, vehicle access to closed parking and residential areas, and even reading the contents of supermarket trolleys.

Fixed reader starter kit

Reader with patch antenna and cables

The Evaluation system is a complete reader with 100 transponders.

The systems are supplied with their famous low power transponders - among the smallest, lowest power passive UHF transponders available anywhere in the world - and the super sensitive receiver capable of reading credit card sized transponders from 2 cms to 11 meters from the reader.The tags can also be attached to metal objects still giving full operating range.

RFID Technologies have packaged the systems into a complete kit comprising a reader, antennas, cables and 100 transponders.

Additional transponders can be purchased.

Contents of kit
The kit comprises a mains operated fixed reader and 100 EcochipTag transponders . The reader is housed in a simple case and its incorporated power supplies are operated from AC mains (115volts - 240 volts). The reader plugs directly into a PC to display the received codes and connects 2 Patch antennas supplied with the kit.
