RFID is an acronym for “radio-frequency identification” and refers to a technology whereby digital data encoded in RFID tags or smart labels (defined below) are captured by a reader via radio waves. RFID is similar to barcoding in that data from a tag or label are captured by a device that stores the data in a database. RFID, however, has several advantages over systems that use barcode asset tracking software. The most notable is that RFID tag data can be read outside the line-of-sight, whereas barcodes must be aligned with an optical scanner.

RFID takes advantage of electromagnetic fields to identify and track tags attached to various objects. AccQtrax uses RFID in a few different ways. For starters, our RFID Tracking System locates, inventories, and, when implemented into your system, checks files both in and out.
Through the use of RFID, our customers can simultaneously print, encode, and verify RFID labels with confidence. These printers can integrate themselves into your industrial manufacturing, logistical applications, and warehouse with ease.
In regard to RFID readers, they come in either handheld, fixed, or forklift styles. Handheld readers allow the user to take the technology wherever the work is. Fixed readers are designed to meet the highest industry and deployment standards. They’re easy to configure, providing control over whatever peripheral devices you may have. Forklift readers deliver ultimate mobility to your business, upgrading the way you manage supply chains without having to upend your entire process.
