Common questions What is an RFID module?

What is an RFID module?

What is an RFID module?

RFID or Radio Frequency Identification system consists of two main components, a transponder/tag attached to an object to be identified, and a Transceiver also known as interrogator/Reader. A Reader consists of a Radio Frequency module and an antenna which generates high frequency electromagnetic field.

How do RFID modules work?

RFID belongs to a group of technologies referred to as Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC). RFID tags contain an integrated circuit and an antenna, which are used to transmit data to the RFID reader (also called an interrogator). The reader then converts the radio waves to a more usable form of data.

What is the use of the RFID module?

Explanation: The RFID Module is primarily used for object identification and tracking. It’s abbreviation stands for Radio Frequency Identification Module. It’s working is mostly wireless and uses electromagnetic fields.

How do I enable RFID?

You can activate your TNG RFID Tag following the below steps:

  1. Click on the RFID icon on the home screen of your Touch ‘n Go eWallet app.
  2. Click on the ‘Activate’ button.
  3. Fill/Check your account details.
  4. Register your vehicle.
  5. Enter the 24-digit RFID Tag number or scan the bar code on the TNG RFID Tag packaging.

Where is RFID used?

The most common RFID applications in hospitals are inventory tracking, control access, staff and patients tracking, tracking tools, tracking disposable consumables, tracking large/expensive equipment, laundry tracking, etc.

How do I know if my RFID reader is working?


  1. Go to ‘Start’ > ‘Settings’ > ‘System’ > ‘Intermec Settings’ > ‘Main Menu’ > ‘RFID’
  2. ‘RFID’ > ‘Enable RFID’ should be ON.
  3. ‘RFID’ > ‘Application connection’, ‘Allow External BRI Connections’ is check by default and the field ‘BRI TCP Port’ is 2189.

What is the output of RFID reader?

Just as you tune your radio to different frequencies in order to hear different radio stations, RFID tags and readers must be tuned to the same frequency in order to communicate effectively. The reader output 12 byte including one start, stop byte and 10 unique data byte.

What are the components of a RFID reader?

Below are the images of three popular RFID Readers – EM18 RFID Reader Module, RC522 RFID Module and PN532 NFC RFID Module. It consists of 2 components (in case of a passive tag). They are Microchip and an antenna.

How does the RFID system work in a microcontroller?

The whole system uses the passive RFID system with inductive coupling method. As the RFID card (tag) is swiped against the RFID reader, a carrier signal of 125 KHz is send to the tag coil, which receives this signal and modulates them. This modulated signal is received by the reader, interfaced to the microcontroller.

What kind of RFID reader does Impinj use?

The UHF high-performance module SLR7400 is a 16-port UHF RFID reader module. It is based on Impinj E710 designed to meet the needs of high-performance RFID devices, it’s good for asset management and retail. The UHF module SLR7500 is a cost-effective UHF RFID reader module. It is based on impinj E310.

What kind of RFID reader does MTI use?

The RU-861-0XX is MTI’s second generation UHF RFID reader module based on Impinj reader chips. It is designed for logistics and item-level inventory management, retail commissioning and item-level tracking, cargo tracking, and more. The M200-RS module is pin-for-pin and software compatible with the Impinj RS2000 module.
