RFID cards are useful for many different applications, from inventory tracking to access control, from DVD rental kiosks and library checkout systems to attendee tracking at conferences, and many more widely varied uses. Pointman offers both active and passive RFID cards with advanced sensitivity for enhanced read rates and range.
Curious about the difference between active RFID and passive RFID cards? Active RFID tags are able to transmit the information stored on their microchips using their own transmitter and power source. Passive RFID cards receive a radio signal from the reader and reader antenna that they then use to power on and reflect energy back to the reader. Passive RFID tags are less expensive as well as smaller than active tags because they don’t come with their own power source, only an antenna and microchip. Active RFID is a technology that operates in the UHF band and is generally used in applications such as real-time locating systems (RTLS).
Whatever your need for RFID cards may be, Pointman has the right cards for the job. Our RFID cards offer full read and write capabilities and can be used worldwide with any EPC UHF operational band. Pointman UHF RFID Cards contain a patent-pending antenna design and Impinj's state-of-the-art Monza 4QT chip.
