What is an electronic product code label?

Electronic product codes are the development of global product codes that identify targets outside the field of view. The electronic product code is not just a radio wave barcode, it contains a series of data and information, such as origin, date code and other key supply information, which is stored in a small silicon chip, using tags, readers Networking with computers allows producers and retailers to keep track of accurate product and inventory information.

What is the price of the RFID tag?

RF tag prices range from 30 cents to $50 depending on the type of tag and application. In general, smart tags used in high-end products are more than 50 cents, and active tags are much more expensive, with complex sensitive components. The price is above $100.

Can RF tags be used for metal objects? Can it be used for items with high water content?

can. Radio waves are reflected back from metal objects and are absorbed by water. This can make it difficult to track metal objects or objects with higher water content. But a well-designed system can solve these problems.

What is the difference between read-only and read-write tags?

The memory has a tag for reading and writing microchips, which can add information based on existing information and is applied in some professional fields, but since it is much more expensive than a read-only chip, it is not for a low-value product. Too realistic. Some read-only chips store information when the product is manufactured and cannot be changed.

What is a label conflict?

The reader can read the information sent back by multiple tags at the same time, which will cause label conflicts. The merchant adopts different systems to make the tags send back one message at a time. The reader can read multiple tags at the same time, so all tags can be read at the same time.

How much information can the RF tag store?

The tags can store data ranging from 512 bytes to 4 megabytes depending on the type of merchant. The data stored in the tag is determined by the application of the system and the corresponding standards. For example, labels can provide product production, transportation, storage, and identify the identity of machines, animals, and individuals. These are similar to the information stored in the barcode. The tag can also be connected to a database to store product inventory number, current location, status, price, lot number information. Correspondingly, the RF tag can directly determine the meaning of the code without reading the database when reading the data.

Can the RF tag be connected to the sensor?

Yes, the RF tag has been connected to many sensors, including temperature and humidity. Labels can be prompted when environmental conditions change, especially when changes have a significant impact on the storage and use of the item.

What is the difference between a transponder, a smart tag, and a radio frequency tag?

Originally in the technical field, transponders are electronic modules capable of transmitting information and replying information. In recent years, due to the rapid development of radio frequency technology, transponders have a new meaning and meaning, and are also called smart tags or tags. Smart Labels are, to be precise, an innovation in RF tags that consist of sticky labels and ultra-thin RF tags. Smart tags combine RF technology with the convenience of flexible label printing. Smart tags with read and write capabilities can be programmed multiple times, following the coding rules at the time the tag was originally created.

Which label is right for my customer's product?

Can the label work properly in a watery environment? Does metal destroy its function? At what temperature does it work? Products with high water content, metal objects, high or low temperatures can be a challenge for label work. But well-designed systems can overcome these shortcomings, so the types of labels vary widely depending on the application's capabilities and objects. The purpose of the RF tag is to use a uniform standard of electronic product code to enable the product to be identified in different areas.
