RFID Overview

User friendly, efficient and reliable

The Tag (RFID)

Each battery powered active RFID tag continually broadcasts a unique radio signal which identifies it to the RFID system every 1.2 seconds. The tags are worn or carried by personnel and/or attached to portable assets which uniquely identifies each person and the assets to the system.

Wireless Location Modules (WLM)

Wireless location Modules (WLMs) are strategically located within and around the buildings. The read/range-zone of each WLM is adjustable to detect tags and badges within that specific zone or area. The read range zone of each WLM can be adjusted to read badges or tags between 0.5 metres and up to 80 metres. The WLMs transmit radio signals to the readers to report the exact location of the badge or tag in real time.

The RFID Readers

The RFID readers receive radio signals from all WLMs within their read zone. The readers can be tuned to read all the badges or tags between 0.5 to 200 metre zones. The benefit of this system architecture is that it allows the system to effectively locate any number of personnel and assets with pinpoint accuracy, in real time.

RFID readers transmit the location of personnel and assets to the software application The software application monitors the real time location of all personnel and assets and enforces the individual business rules.
