RFID System components
Systems using this technology are typically made up of the following components:
- tags also known as "RFID labels"; they are the objects that contain information and are characterized by the presence of a microchip
- antenna to communicate with the tags and the controller
- controller to manage the radio communications and act as an interface with the outside world; it can be integrated into the computer or in the antenna
- computer (handheld, portable or fixed) to process, store and display information that can be later sent to a central system to be integrated in the company management system.
To this basic structure other "optional" components can be added as a part of the technological infrastructure such as cabling in industrial environments, the possible wireless coverage of the warehouses and spaces used for storage, the achievements of specific data storage facilities, etc.
