Adopting TracLogik RFID is a logical step for any business aiming to increase efficiency and productivity. RFID provides instant, real-time management information regarding stock, asset location and attendance, driving greater efficiency and increased productivity.

A TracLogik RFID solution, in its simplest form, consists of a ‘Reader’ and a ‘Tag’.

Readers are typically located at fixed locations, for example a room in a building, and tags are attached to assets, or given to people.

When a tag, which is assigned to an asset, is read by a reader, which is assigned to a location, the time and date at which this occurred is recorded by the TracLogik Control Centre, which then processes this information to give a huge variety of intelligence to the user.

For example, a staff member’s ID tag is automatically read when they enter and leave a room, allowing the control centre to create a timesheet and calculate wages earned for attendance, for onward processing in an organisation’s payroll system.

Many thousands of tags can be read by a reader at any time, allowing the control centre to immediately tell you how many packages, and more importantly exactly what packages, are in any given location at any given time.

Where is something currently located? When did it arrive? When did it leave, and how long was it there for?

TracLogik leverages a wide range of readers, depending on the particular implementation that is required. Readers can be mounted at doorways, on shelves, outdoors on poles or in ceilings.

We also often integrate ‘hand-held’ readers into our solutions, to allow for mobile stock taking and inventory production, and we specialise in creating iOS and Android applications for use with existing IPhone and smart phone users.

The majority of RFID tags produced today are ‘Passive’ or ‘Active’ and the primary difference between these s the ‘read range’ i.e. the distance at which they can be read by an RFID reader.


Passive RFID Tags

Passive RFID tags typically do not possess an on-board source of power. Instead, the passive RFID tag receives its power from the energising electromagnetic field of an RFID reader (or interrogator). The energy coupled from the electromagnetic field is used to power the passive tag's microelectronics.

Passive RFID tags are less costly to manufacture than active RFID tags and require almost no maintenance. This gives passive tags a very long life and very low cost, making them perfect for retailers, manufacturers and any businesses with high volumes of assets or people to manage.

TracLogik sources and supplies passive RFID tags in a huge variety of designs, depending on the usage case. For example, tags can range from simple paper labels to more complex moulded plastic units allowing for a wide range of applications and mounting options.

With these huge benefits comes a trade off in read range. Passive RFID tags, have a much shorter read range (up to a few meters) when compared to active RFID tags.


Active RFID Tags

Active RFID tags contain a battery that directly powers RF communication. This on-board power source allows an active RFID tag to transmit information about itself at far greater ranges than passive tags, either by constantly beaconing this information to an RFID tag reader or by transmitting only when it is prompted to do so.

Active tags are slightly larger in size, dependant on the size of battery used and its required life span.

Our customers use Active RFID to track medical equipment, electronic test gear, computer equipment and a wide range of high value assets around their estate.

Due to the built in power source, added value features such as temperature sensors, motion detectors, or telemetry interfaces can be added to our Active tags, and as with passive tags, specialised housings can be created for specific tag applications.

Active tags are typically used in real-time tracking of higher value assets around a campus style environment, often outdoors. For example shipping containers around a port, or vehicles around a storage facility.
