New RFID Document Tracking System: higher speed, lower costs
Managing important documents efficiently is a challenge for every organization. RFID systems can save time and effort and thus increase efficiency, particularly in locating documents. scemtec Transponder Technology and SMARTRAC have jointly developed RFID components that are perfectly designed for automatic document management, control of document stock and comprehensive tracking of documents.
scemtec offers suitable RFID read-write equipment and antennas for document identification, such as inventory management or archiving of documents. The system is utilized to capture all media data and prevent document theft, swapping or any other kind of mishandling.
The system typically consists of a HF Long-Range Reader (SIL-2125) or alternative of a HF Midrange Reader (SIR-2720) both supporting the EPC Class-1 HF, ISO 18000-3 Mode3 and a HF 3D antenna system (SAT-Tunnel-13Mhz). These components have the ability to detect labels independent of their orientation inside the tunnel. An obvious advantage of the reader is speed: Data transfer is twice as fast opposed to conventional devices. Whereas in the past, the use of transponders has often been limited by interference, they are now readable even when stacked on top of each other. scemtec RFID readers/antennas in collaboration with SMARTRAC RFID tags are capable of reading more than 500 tags simultaneously. All documents can be identified using SMARTRAC RFID transponders, which carry all required information. RFID transponders for document tracking are based on EPC Class-1 HF standard (ISO 18000-3 Mode 3), which allows swift identification of stacked items. The transponder is designed for document stacks and contains a tag identification number (TID) with unique serial numbers enabling secure and reliable identification of documents. SMARTRAC has designed block inlays for document identification where close stacking occurs. Block tags and inlays also work well in applications where very fast inventory of multiple tags in the field occurs. Block inlays are using NXP ICode ILT-M IC with 96bit TID (including 48bit serial number), 240bit EPC and 512bit user memory.
The innovative system, supported by RFID technology, will provide a crucial contribution to achieving maximum transparency during the whole process of document handling; reducing time-consuming search processes and minimizing document losses.
