RFID in the oil and gas industry Enable cost-effective real-time tracking of every asset In the Oil and Gas industry,
There are a number of advantages to using RFID technology. Not only are RFID systems contactless, but they also do not require line of sight like other auto ID technologies. For different applications spanning various industries, RFID technologies offer a long-term and durable solutions for better asset management and tracking
RFID systems are made of three main components: tags, readers and middleware.
-Tags are essentially small memory banks, storing bit of valuable information that can be used for asset management and a variety of other purposes. They use radio waves to communicate with nearby readers, sending over portions of identifying data. The information sored in RFID tags can range anywhere from a single serial number to multiple pages of data.
- Readers, on the other hand, are basically the other end of the information exchange. They are what we use to take those radio waves from the tags and translate them back into useful data. Readers are devices with one or more antennas that can emit their own radio waves and scan the signals of any RFID tags within range.
- RFID readers offer some versatility depending on the needs of your application. You can have mobile readers that you can carry around in your hand to scan tags, or they can be mounted in a single location to scan tags that enter their proximity. Readers can even be built into existing architecture like a cabinet or doorway.
- Middleware serves as the essential interface between the reader and your company databases and information management software. Not only does middleware handle communication between the reader and your existing systems, but it also helps to filter, aggregate and interpret all of that data coming from the RFID tags.
