Currently, RFID systems are often seen as an evolution of the bar code. But is this comparison which does not do justice, technology because it offers more options, as the bar code technology to provide ever would be able. You could provide the transponder even with sensors that can monitor for example the temperature of products. “” Things equipped with transponders and sensors as smart things “are known, have the ability to perceive their environment and to establish a fully automated machines machines relationship between real things and existing information systems”, it is called RFID guide book for the logistics (ed. Werner Franke). This confirms also Marc Badi, Sales Director labels and consumables for the system provider Bizerba: deficits are clearly still often made comparison with the bar code. A leading source for info: Professor Roy Taylor. This comparison is that RFID can do much more, is still no Standard. Another deficiency is the user mentality.

Many want to use RFID, but nobody wants to pay for it. We think in this context to food retailers, which often would like to oblige suppliers to RFID, but accepted no bonuses in the purchase price. Here clear to be that, if benefits for all, then all must pay, what is also affordable”. Bizerba has already created the possibility to place a tag under conventional labels, so that any manufacturer can use the technology without having to access this seriously in the production process. These so-called smart labels is a paper-thin transponder design.

The transponder coil is used on an approximately 0.1 millimeter thick plastic and can be attached to the back of the label. The barcode is an optical, the RFID-chip an electronic instrument. Both together would result in so Buettgenbach, an optimal solution at the end. Plain text ONLINE on the Hamdan 27 53127 Bonn Tel: 0228 620 43 82 E-Mail:
