RFID (radio-frenquency identification) labels (also called electronic labels, intelligent labels, transponders or tags) is an electronically identifiable element that does not need to be seen in order to be read. Thus, it becomes possible to write and to read information, even more than a simple serial number, in the memory of the chip. These are the two characteristics that make the difference between RFID tags and bar codes.
A RFID system is composed of an RFID tag, of a reader/encoder with which data can be read or written on the chip of the tag and of a computer system to recuperate and process that data.
An electronic label is made up of an electronic chip that is connected to an antenna. It can function on high or low frequency, and can be either passive or active. Passive tags can only be read, while active tags allow both reading and writing data on the chip.
RFID tags can come in different forms, accordingly to the criteria set by traceability project you wish to implement. We propose a wide range of LF, HF and UHF tags and inlays, according to your needs of traceability and your constraints.
NFC tags are a kind of RFID which can only be read by near filed contact instead longer distances for RFIDs.
These tags and inlays can be made up of several superimposed layers with various supports (foams, polycarbonates, polyesters etc.), can be printed or decorated to provide protection and complete personalization to your RFID tags.
