Chances are, if you’ve visited a music festival, water park, hotel or convention in the last couple of years, you’ve probably worn an RFID wristband. But how do RFID wristbands work?To get more news about rfid silicone wristband, you can visit bestrfidcard official website.
You might have even used an RFID wristband to tap and pay for drinks or post a photo to your Facebook account.Well, here at ID&C we receive lots of questions about RFID wristband technology; how it works and more importantly, what the benefits are for event organizers.RFID describes the method or process of transmitting the unique identity of a rfid silicone wristband (or any RFID-enabled object) using radio waves.
The technology enables specialist readers or ‘scanners’ to capture the data on an RFID tag and transmit it to a back-end computer system without the requirement for physical contact.When read (or ‘tapped’), an RFID scanner will transmit an encoded radio signal which identifies a tag.
In less than a millisecond, RFID tags receive the transmission and respond with a unique identification number.
The most simple every-day comparison to RFID is a barcode on a can of soda.
When scanned, the barcode talks to a database of information relating to the soda. Details including product name, price, weight and use-by-date are unlocked when a barcode is read.While the principle of retrieving data via scanning is the same, the similarities between RFID and bar codes end there.
I could write at length about the differences but this handy table provides a quick overview.An RFID wristband contains a ‘smart tag’ made up of an RFID chip and antenna. The tag can be in the form of a visible card (often made from plastic for durability) or it can be hidden or ‘embedded’ in other wristband materials like silicone and cloth.
If you want to get really technical then RFID Journal has a great FAQ on everything to do with RFID.
There are limits on the ranges RFID wristbands can meet, and depending on what type of event or festival you are planning you can choose options from low to ultra-high frequency.
