What is RFID?
Radio frequency identification (RFID) is the process of giving an item a unique trackable identity using electromagnetic fields. This process happens wirelessly, without the need for direct contact between the RFID tag and the reader.
An RFID tag is a small device containing a chip and an antenna that can be embedded in any item that the user wishes to track.
With textiles, such as medical scrubs, an RFID tag can be sewn right into the garment as a label. This will allow the RFID reader to identify each individual item via the signal the reader receives from the tag.
Our RFID tags are tough enough to withstand any industrial laundering process. And they don’t require maintenance or charging.
RFID tagging gives you complete control over your entire textile inventory. Eliminate the guesswork and uncertainty
Why Choose RFID?
Adopting an RFID system brings many advantages over the alternatives.
Each RFID tag emits a unique identification signal. Yet tagged items can be scanned as a bundle, quickly and accurately. This eliminates both the labor costs and the potential for human error that comes with manual processing.
In addition, RFID is faster and more reliable than barcode scanning, as it doesn't require line-of-sight to detect items.
