RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification, and an RFID card is a type of identification card that uses RFID technology to store and transmit data. RFID cards contain a small RFID chip and an antenna that allows them to communicate with RFID readers or scanners wirelessly. These cards are commonly used for various purposes, including access control, security, and identification.
Here are some key features and uses of RFID cards:
Contactless Technology: RFID cards work without physical contact. When the card is brought within close proximity to an RFID reader, it sends the stored data to the reader via radio waves.
Access Control: RFID cards are frequently used in access control systems to grant or restrict access to certain areas, such as office buildings, hotels, and parking lots. Employees or authorized individuals can use their RFID cards to gain entry by waving them in front of a card reader.
Identification: These cards are used for personal identification in various contexts, such as student ID cards, employee badges, and government-issued IDs.
Asset Tracking: In inventory and logistics, RFID technology is used to track and manage assets and products. Retailers use RFID tags on products to monitor inventory and reduce theft.
Payment Cards: Some credit and debit cards use RFID technology for contactless payments. These cards are often referred to as “contactless cards.”
Library Books: Libraries often use RFID tags in books, allowing for quick and efficient check-in and check-out processes.
Animal Identification: RFID tags are implanted in pets and livestock for identification and tracking purposes.
RFID cards come in various forms, including key cards, badges, and smart cards. The RFID technology used in these cards can operate on different frequencies, such as low-frequency (LF), high-frequency (HF), and ultra-high-frequency (UHF), depending on the specific application and range requirements.
