Electronic Product Code (EPC) enabled RFID is the global standard maintained by 安博电竞app for RFID technology. Created in collaboration with RFID technology providers, suppliers and retail users, the EPC standard defines three key elements of the technology:
How data is to be stored on the tag
The data structure for tags is a simple extension of the widely used 安博电竞app system of product identifiers. EPC RFD codes consist of each product's Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) - these are sometimes called UPC or EANs - with the addition of a serial number for each product instance and some instructions for the reader.
How a tag talks to the reader
The EPC standard provides a blueprint for how tags and readers talk to each other - this means that as long as both are EPC compliant, any combination of tags and readers will work together. In order to do this, the industry has reduced the variability of tags and readers, uniting in the use of passive, Ultra High Frequency (UHF) tags. In Australia the standard is 918-926 MHz frequency range.
How readers talk to business systems
The final part of the EPC standard - how the reader links the data that it captures back into your systems - ultimately ensures the interoperability of your RFID solution. This enables the efficient and automated communication of data across your network of departments, suppliers and partners.
