Understanding RFID

Tag Reader RFID Positek

Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object. The tag can be read from several meters away and does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the reader to be tracked.

A significant benefit of RFID over bar code is that the chip does not need to be in a particular place to be read, it simply needs to pass through the field generated by the antenna. This benefit provides the ability to handle more garments per hour and read multiple garments at a time.

Companies in a wide variety of industries are seeking solutions to help them improve the efficiency of their textile management processes. Whether its garments, flat goods, blankets, pillowcases, privacy curtains, sheets, towels, microfiber mops, aprons, coveralls, hospital gowns, scrubs or uniforms, Positek RFID helps manage textile needs more efficiently, improving customer service and boosting your bottom line.
