How Does RFID Work?

RFID works somewhat like radar. A signal is sent from the RFID reader, it spreads out and reaches the RFID chip. The RFID chip resonates at a unique frequency and "reflects" the signal back. The signal reflected from the RFID chip is received by the RFID reader and decoded.

Passive RFID chips have no internal power source, such as a battery, and are limited to close-distance interaction.

Active RFID chips have an internal power source, like a battery, allowing them to amplify the signal, increasing the distance between the RFID reader and RFID chip.

Hotels, resorts, and cruise operators want their guests to feel at home, and excessive control can lead to uncomfortable feelings. RFID wristbands seemingly allow for guest activity control without the need to ask them to display their wristbands as in the old days.

Additional charges can be assigned, and access to areas like swimming pools, saunas, fitness rooms, etc., can be managed. With RFID wristbands for hotels, doors can be opened. This way, keys or cards are not lost or forgotten and locked inside the room.

When checking out from the hotel, a special alarm can be triggered to ensure the guest returns the wristband.

Statistics are always valuable for future planning, and that's what using RFID wristbands can provide to operators in the tourism industry.

RFID for Amusement Parks

Managing wristbands on visitors' wrists in entertainment and amusement parks makes access control easy to implement. RFID wristbands can activate entrance control if the person in front of it is eligible to enter a restricted area. This can save man-hours and allow automation in the access control process.

Statistics show that for over 20% of families visiting amusement parks, one of their children gets lost. It's not hard to imagine, given the many attractions and distractions for kids. The old-fashioned method was to write contact information on a paper wristband, but space was limited, and sometimes the information wasn't legible. RFID wristbands solve this problem by securely storing the information in the RFID IC chip. Furthermore, the RFID IC chip allows for pinpointing the exact location of the lost child when readers are placed around the park.

Another great feature implemented in RFID-enabled wristbands is cashless payments. Upon entering the park, visitors can deposit money onto their wristbands. At locations in the amusement park where cash was previously used, payment can be made by scanning the RFID-enabled wristbands, transferring the amount to be deducted from the debited account to the database. Statistics have shown that people tend to spend more money when they don't have to pay in cash, increasing revenue for the amusement park.

RFID Wristbands for Concerts and Festivals

Another branch of the entertainment industry where RFID wristbands for events can have significant benefits is festivals and concerts. At the entrance to the venue, wristbands are mounted on the wrists of all groups of people involved in the event. RFID IC chips can send information to RFID readers about who is a spectator, performer, backstage staff, etc. This can provide automatic access to privileged individuals or alternatively reduce the risk of human errors when people control access points.

Using scattered readers to collect information about the locations of spectators can contribute to safety by triggering an alarm indicating when the number of spectators has exceeded a certain limit in a specific area, thus avoiding panic.

When using RFID wristbands for festivals, organizers can have an event without cash. Many times, people lose their money in the crowd and chaos during an event like a concert or festival. An RFID wristband securely fastened to the wrist can solve this problem. Guests can load their wristbands with cash upon entry, and the money is deducted when the wristbands are scanned at the point of sale.

In the past, tokens or coupons were used at festivals and concerts to control the sale of goods and food during the events. This way, organizers can charge a percentage of the revenue from the sold items rather than a flat rate. Using RFID wristbands allows for cashless events with control over revenue.

Previously, organizers had limited space on access wristbands for advertising. Now, by obtaining participants' consent, organizers can take advantage of scanned tweets and likes when a person enters a specific area while wearing an RFID wristband. It's possible to automate the process by tracking where people are and their direct routes to social media platforms like Facebook.

By using RFID wristbands, information can be collected about participant patterns and behaviors, enabling better planning for future events.

And one more thing... over the years, festival organizers have experienced attempts to counterfeit their access control wristbands by producing similar copied wristbands. It wasn't always easy for the people at the gates to spot the forgery, and some events suffered significant losses due to this issue. RFID-enabled wristbands minimize counterfeiting. Scammers would have to replicate the pattern of the wristbands as well as the content of the RFID IC chips.

RFID for Medical Use

Using wristbands to identify patients in hospitals is an age-old practice. Upon admission, a wristband is attached to patients and remains on their wrists until they are discharged. Initially, different colored wristbands were used, then wristbands with barcodes, and now the latest improvement is RFID wristbands for patients.

RFID wristbands in the medical sector are used to easily identify patients, store vital information about them, and have instant access to that information, as well as to determine their location. In healthcare, real-time data is a significant advantage, making quick decisions easier. Implementing RFID wristbands reduces the chance of human errors by avoiding paper lists and allowing information to be updated directly to a database.

RFID wristbands are ideal for triggering an alarm when patients attempt to exit through a door. This way, patients can feel like they are not locked in, but there is still control over their movements. This practice is particularly useful with patients suffering from dementia diseases like Alzheimer's.

Smartphones and RFID

Modern smartphones are equipped with NFC, which is a specific type of RFID. Currently, NFC on smartphones is limited to 13.56 MHz. Android devices and iPhones can function as an RFID tag and as an RFID reader, allowing two-way communication between two smartphones or scanning an RFID IC chip within the frequency range.

It's not difficult to find an affordable smartphone with NFC communication capabilities, even in poorer countries. Smartphones can function as an NFC RFID scanner, reducing operational costs when implementing RFID wristbands.

Choosing the RFID wristband chip

RFID wristbands should be comfortable to wear and not too bulky. While technology allows us to condense impressive features into a small RFID chip, the chip ultimately has weight, and the antenna requires dimensions many times the minimum for effective results.

We offer waterproof RFID wristbands made of Tyvek paper, vinyl plastic, textile fabric, and silicone rubber. Each has its own advantages as per the instructions.

  • Tyvek paper RFID wristbands have an insert with metallic printing. These are disposable wristbands, very cost-effective, but not as durable.
  • Plastic vinyl RFID wristbands are laminated, allowing for encapsulation of a chip within the laminated layers.
  • Textile RFID wristbands can have a slider added or the chip embedded within two layers of fabric.
  • Silicone RFID wristbands have the chip completely covered by silicone. The chip is inserted while the silicone is molded.

RFID chips are categorized by:

  • Active or passive - internal power source.
  • Frequency class - LF, HF, UHF.
  • Memory capacity - in bytes.
  • Communication protocol - coding and decoding standard.
  • Tolerance - temperature, humidity, pressure.
  • Manufacturer.
  • 125 kHz and 134.3 kHz are classified as passive LF (Low Frequency) RFID IC chips - with a typical operating range of maximum 30 cm, approximately 10 cm for RFID wristbands with IC chips.
  • 13.56 MHz is classified as passive HF (High Frequency) RFID IC chips - with a maximum operating range of around 1.5 meters, approximately 1 meter for RFID wristbands with IC chips.
  • 860 - 960 MHz is classified as passive UHF (Ultra High Frequency) RFID IC chips - with an operating range of over 1.5 meters (with a minimum reading distance of over 1 meter).

RFID is a dynamic and rapidly growing industry. The range is constantly improving with a new generation of RFID chips entering the market.

  • LF: Low Frequency - 125KHz.
  • HF: High Frequency - 13.56MHz.
  • UHF: Ultra High Frequency - 915MHz.

Security and Prices

Security Regarding RFID Chip

RFID IC chips must be uniquely identified by an RFID reader to prevent unwanted manipulation or copying of information. Encoding is required to maintain security. Imagine a situation where an RFID wristband with an IC chip is unwantedly scanned, and the information on the chip is retrieved by insecure sources. It's not very difficult to mimic an RFID IC chip when the information on the chip is exposed, which can lead to misuse and damage.

It's important to understand how secure RFID wristbands are and what their weaknesses are before making a decision about using RFID.

Prices of RFID Chips
As technology advances in RFID chips for textile wristbands, they become more cost-effective and integrate into various types of wristbands.

There are original RFID IC chip manufacturers and compatible RFID IC chip manufacturers. Original RFID wristbands are often much more expensive than compatible ones. Our job is to present the advantages and costs to our customers and ensure that when we offer a solution with affordable, compatible RFID wristbands, they function properly despite the lower price.

Choosing RFID wristbands is more complex than it may seem. Let us help you find the best results.
