When You Need Technology To Work For You
RFID cards are plastic cards that contain an embedded integrated circuit (IC) which wirelessly sends data over radio waves, usually in one direction. The radio frequency is read by an RFID system, which involves a transceiver, a transponder and an antenna. The antenna and transceiver read and transfer the data, while the transponder sends the data.
Some of the first uses of this technology were: Key-less ID entry, tracking nuclear materials, tracking cattle, tracking reusable containers.
These days, RFID is used for:
- access control
- payment systems
- anti-theft in automobiles
- supply chain inventory
Since RFID cards transmit data over radio waves, there is no need to swipe them, which means that they cannot wear out over time, like a magnetic stripe can.
Companies or organizations that are conscious of security and inventory, such as libraries, medical facilities, financial institutions or government agencies, use these RFID cards for identification, authentication and other applications. RFID cards are also used as event tickets, public transit passes and hotel room keys.
