RFID solutions

The abbreviation RFID stands for "Radio Frequency Identification". In addition to barcode scanning, this identification technology has become firmly established in production and (intra-)logistics. RFID allows objects to be identified precisely and contactlessly. This is done using a transponder and a read/write unit, also known as a reader, which generates an electromagnetic field and can be used either as a mobile or stationary device. The transponder attached to the goods acts as an information carrier, the reader reads the codes it contains and transmits them to the warehouse management system. Communication or data transmission between the transponder and reader takes place in the ultra-high frequency range (UHF) by radio.

A key advantage of RFID applications is the option of being able to record and compare several objects in parallel in bulk - for example when receiving goods. In the area of paperless picking, this technology enables automated control and direct feedback of the data. At the same time, orders can be updated while they are still being processed. Additional identification and control work is no longer required.
