What is RFID? A Comprehensive Guide for Beginners

RFID is an acronym for Radio-Frequency Identification. This is a technology that uses radio waves to transfer data.  For it to work, you must have a complete RFID system consisting of: An RFID tag/ label An RFID reader/ interrogator RFID Antenna The label contains encoded information that can be captured by the reader. However, the tag must be within an acceptable distance for the reader to capture the information. That distance is called the read range.  If the tag is
