RFID Hardware

Pentamaster provides a wide range of products from readers to tags and middleware solutions. Tags may be of Active or Passive in which the differences are based on whether they are battery assisted or not. Our middleware can be customized as independent program or to be integrated into existing enterprise systems.

Active

Active Tags are completely powered by internal or external source. Active tags can achieve the read range of more than 10 meters. Active tags are generally employed in real-time location tracking applications namely the movement of human beings, animals, vehicles, valuable assets and et cetera. Frequency bandwidth : 308Mhz, 430Mhz, 915 Mhz (ISM1), and 2450Mhz (ISM2).

Passive

Passive tags completely rely on received power to power up. The read range of these tags is usually below 5 meters. These tags are commonly used in the supply chain namely for tracking of consumer goods for inventories, assets, shipments and deliveries; asset management and access control. Frequency bandwidth : 125kHz, 13.56Mhz, 860 – 960 Mhz

Read Distance :Read Distance :Read Distance :
Can easily read several yards and, in a perfect environment, 30 or 40 feet and beyond. Because a typical dock door is ten twelve feet across.
Can move out to several inches — around a foot with good planning.
Reads at very close range, just beyond actual contact
Application: Application:Application:
Supply chain, asset management and access control for vehicles. UHF has challenges with direct contact on liquids and metals because the frequency is easily reflected and absorbed. Many items in close proximity, like pharmaceuticals on a shelf, access controls and smart cards. HF works well on liquid medicine vials and similar products.Access Control and Payment Technologies. Usually not used for tagging objects
