A valuable plus in terms of profitability

RFID technology enables the wireless exchange of data between a transponder (tag) as a data carrier and a reading device (reader) by means of electromagnetic fields. A transponder is a collective term for data carriers which enable contact free reading. They combine the functions of a data carrier (with an antenna) and a data memory. The information flowing between transponders and readers is evaluated in databases. 


  • non-visible reading and writing
  • negative interference allows the communication of several transponders in sequence, and this way creates the prerequisite for bulk reading
  • dynamic data management: on the transponders, data can be stored, changed, added and deleted at any time
  • flexible data management directly on the load carrier, pallet, and/or product (decentralised data storage)
  • data transfer between pallet and reader: wireless, contact-free, without direct visual contact

The transponders

  • 868 MHz under ISO18000-6C
  • chip: NXP EPC Gen 2 passive
  • EPC memory: 96 bit (12 byte)
  • TID memory: 64 bit (8 byte) tag identifier
  • free data memory: 224 bit (28 byte)
  • sustainable temperatures: -20 °C to +70 °C
  • bulk reading: yes (anti-collision)
  • range: up to 3 metres (depending on antenna size, ambient temperature and the type of writer / reader)
