RFID tags for tools
The tool tagging system integrated with fleet management will help you reduce loss or theft, organize tools and equipment. The tool tagging system automatically identifies and tracks the RFID tags that are attached to your tools and equipment, which will do a good favor for tools management and reduce human error.
RFID tags for tools have a number of advantages :
An RFID tag can be read even if it is passed near a reader, so you don’t have to position the item as exactly as when reading a bar code.
RFID tags can be read when they are covered or not visible – a tag can be read even if it is inside a box, carton or case.
You can read multiple RFID tags at once – unlike bar codes, which can only be read one at a time.
Like other RFID applications, choosing the right RFID tag for tools should consider what the tag cost, the type of read distance you need to achieve and the method that the tag will be affixed to the tool, asset or piece of equipment.
No matter what type of solution you are handling, there are some things that you need to take into account when choosing the right tag for your application:
What size is preferable? It will affect the reading distance on tools.
What memory you need for data storage? Need encoding?
How will the tag be attached to a surface or item? Glue? Tie? Screws?
Metal can present readability problems for RFID tags. Do you need an on-metal tag solution?
What type of read distance do you need?
Will the tools pile together?
What kind of reader you choose, handheld or fixed reader?
