RFID-Systems

RFID Technology (Radio Frequency Identification) is used nowadays in many areas.

Huf Tools offers RFID solutions for use in

  • Automation: Process control units in manufacturing companies
  • Logistics: Product registration and optimization of goods' flow
  • Quality Assurance: Defect elimination, back-tracking
  • Maintenance: Item identification and storage of item-related data 
  • Security: Protection from product piracy, anti-theft protection, immobilisation
  • Special reader: to customer specification(Design, development, production)

We offer compatability with the various ISO Standards e.g. ISO15693 or ISO 14443. Our equipment supports current transponder protocols of different companies in the frequency range 125 kHz and 13,56 MHz.

What is RFID?

The RFID-System consists of 2 components:

  • A memory chip with antenna – the so-called transponder and
  • A transponder writer/reader – the so-called transponder reader.

If the transponder is brought within the range of the transponder reader and identified with the correct signal frequency, the RFID transponder supplies the data stored in the memory. A corresponding transponder reader can be used to store the data on the RFID transponder. The equipment shown can both read data from transponders and write data on the transponders. Movable items such as semi-finished goods in production processes or goods in logistics processes are usually provided with RFID transponders and written with specific data. With the help of transponder readers it is now possible to track these goods and products and to control their flow. An RFID transponder is also used as an electronic key to check whether persons are authorised to gain access to buildings or facilities. A well-known example is the car immobilizer. RFID transponders are also used in maintenance and to keep log books.

Consultation, planning and development

Customer solutions and integration

Add RFID to existing equipment or fixtures. We suggest solutions on how to do this.

It is our aim to be able to offer the best technical solution as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible, taking aspects of cost and usage into consideration.

We offer overall solutions, taking into consideration the building design as per design specification with special functions and interfaces, and include programming to suit the application and its interfaces.

Applications

Customer solution - BMW KeyReader

BMW have been using Huf Tools key readers since 2001. When cars go in for service and repair, all the relevant data for that car is shown by inserting the key into the key reader. It's no longer necessary to make a note of the kilometers on the clock and to have the log book handy.
