What is new at iDTRONIC?

Do you have questions about RFID technology or systems? We have the RFID expertise!

Ultra High Frequency (UHF 840 – 960 MHz)

  • Very high transmission speeds and ranges
  • A dipole instead of a coil is sufficient for the antenna

High Frequency (HF 13.56 MHz)

  • High transmission rates and high clock frequencies
  • Short wavelength requiring only a few antenna turns –> RFID transponder antennas can be made smaller and simpler
  • Inlays (chip + antenna) can be produced as continuous films –> further processing towards large quantities in a roll-to-roll process considerably simplified

Low Frequency (LF = 125 kHz or 134.2 kHz)

  • Low transmission rates and distances
  • RFID transponders are relatively insensitive to metal and liquids in this frequency range

Ultra High Frequency (UHF 840 – 960 MHz)

  • RFID Readers: up to 30 cm

  • Contactless data collection: Exchange of electronic storage and programming of data
  • High reading ranges: Identification of an RFID chip and data acquisition take place at a distance of a few centimetres to several metres
  • Application-related types: Size, shape, range or storage medium
  • Key role in the automation: Improving the efficiency of industrial workflows and processes and increasing profitability
  • Material permeation: Radio waves penetrate materials such as cardboard, wood, plastic and textiles
  • Robust component: Microchip is robust against environmental influences such as dirt or moisture and can be used in challenging environments
  • Bulk reading: Simultaneous detection of up to 1000 parts marked with transponders accelerates processes and makes RFID technology suitable for mass use in industry

RFID readers are equipped with a high-frequency module, a controller and an antenna as a coupling element. They generate a magnetic field with a special RFID frequency. This enables them to identify the corresponding transponder and read its data. Usually they are called readers, but they can do much more. They can also be designed as a read and write unit to supply the RFID chip with data. There are mobile RFID readers, handheld systems and fixed RFID readers for different applications.

Data is transmitted via a magnetic or electromagnetic field that supplies the passive RFID transponder with energy. As long as the transponder is in the electromagnetic field, data can be exchanged. No direct contact or line of sight between reader and transponder is necessary. Transponders can be read through all electrical non-conductive materials. RFID readers can be subdivided into place of use, reading range, power supply, frequency range, application and mobility.

RFID transponders can be powered actively (from a battery) or passively (from the electromagnetic field). With the help of the integrated battery, active transponders can transmit data over a greater distance (up to 100 meters). Passive RFID transponders receive their energy for data transmission solely from the electromagnetic field of the RFID reader. There is also an intermediate type, semi-active/semi-passive RFID transponders. They have their own power source, but do not appear completely as their own transmitter. Since the power supply is provided by a battery, no power has to be taken from the electromagnetic field. However, the response is made by modulating the magnetic field, which means that it is not amplified anew.

If a RFID reader needs to be more stable and robust (industrial environment), the inlay (chip + antenna) can be cast in a plastic housing. This results in the most robust, durable and insensitive form of packaging.

Transponder antennas take the energy from the radio waves and transmit it to the RFID chip to switch it on. In general, the larger the antenna, the more energy can be collected and made available to the chip, increasing the read range. Current chips typically manage with less energy. Whether certain objects can be detected with RFID technology is therefore always a question of energy.

RFID reader and RFID antennas work as one system to read RFID transponders. RFID antennas convert electric current into electromagnetic waves, which are then radiated into space where they are received by a transponder antenna and converted back into electric current. Just like transponder antennas, there are a variety of RFID antennas. The optimal antenna varies depending on the specific application.

The two most common antenna types are linear and circular polarised antennas. Linear polarised antennas offer long ranges and radiate with high power. These allow different materials to be penetrated. Linearly polarised antennas are sensitive to the antenna orientation of the transponder. The wrong position of an object can lead to it not being read correctly. Conversely, circularly polarised antennas have circular fields. These are less sensitive to transponder alignment, but are not able to radiate as much power as linear polarised antennas.
