Tracking assets with RFID(Radio frequency identification) makes everything more easier and efficient and accurate. It improves the operation efficiency and visibility of your assets in warehouse in real-time.

RFID Asset Tracking

The important of Asset tracking and management

Asset management has always been an important part during every enterprise’s operation, it is also one of the big challenge for managing a large amount of assets. It will spend a lot of time and human labor to search for valuable assets, which lead to asset loss, high management cost and low work efficiency.

One way to imporve asset tracking and management is by using RFID technology to automatically track assets.

RFID Introduction

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), is a non-contact automatic identification technology. It automatically identifies the target objects and gets relevant data through radio frequency signals. The identification work does not require manual intervention.

RFID technology has the advantages of waterproof, antimagnetic, high temperature resistance, long service life, long reading distance, encrypted data on the label, larger data storage capacity, and freely changeable information, which is not available in barcodes. It bring revolutionary changes to industries such as logistics and retail.

What is UHF RFID asset tracking?

In a simple way, UHF RFID asset tracking is by using RFID tags to attach on physical assets. RFID tags which contains the data of relevant assets like name, quantity, condition and location.

Meanwhile, RFID readers will scan the RFID tags and collect the stored data. It will transmit the data to UHF RFID asset tracking system which can monitor the assets.

UHF RFID technology is able to automatically track and manage your valuable assets, which can greatly improve the work efficiency and asset visibility, reduce human error and costs.

How does UHF RFID asset tracking system work?

No matter what application it is , track assets in warehouse or tracking garbage bin on truck, a complete UHF RFID asset tracking system consists of 4 parts:

Once you choose the right RFID equipment, the RFID asset tracking process can be broken into 4 steps:

  1. Data(name, condition, size or location) will be stored in RFID tags, with an EPC( Electronic product code), and is attached to assets.

  2. RFID reader send RF signal through RFID antenna and identifies nearby RFID tags

  3. RFID reader receives the data from RFID tags

  4. RFID reader transmit the data to asset tracking database
