EAS Tag Concept Paper.

Introduction

 Ever since the first electronic article surveillance device was installed in retail setting 30 years ago retail security technology has played an important role in store applications.

With inventory shrinkage costing organizations hundreds of millions of rupees each year, organization have increasingly turned to technology such as EAS or tagging system and video surveillance to control theft and inventory management system.

 AS retailer demand has grown so has the technology. The first somewhat large anti theft tags have evolved into today’s wafer like labels that’s can be attached or inserted in to variety of items. As EAS technology has become more sophisticated, organizations now have much more flexibility with their systems, with the promise of much more innovations to come.

 For manufacturers & retailers, the potentials applications and benefits of RFID technology are far reaching. Systems enable companies to protect and manage their assets more efficiently through identifying and monitoring movements, providing significant enhancements to inventory control and management, Successful integration of such system into day today working is fast becoming a necessity to manage inventory and reduce overheads.

Organizations also stand to benefit from the efficiencies that RFID have brought to access control systems and to automation of traditional more cumbersome time and attendance systems well-established applications in many other industries. RFID personnel identification can be further extended to restrict and control access to tills, overcoming the loopholes inherent in traditional password protection and drawer locks.

 With tags on products, inventory counting and stocktaking and marking, stock down will become faster and more accurate. More detailed and up to date product information reduces the risk and costs associated with out of stocks and obsolescence. Receiving bays, automated counting results in more efficient checking.

 Significant benefits stand to be had in the automation of returns. Ultimately, the concept of Self-Checkout stands to become a reality, when readers at the till will identify the contents.

 What is Smart RF_ID Tag?

 RFID uses radio frequency transmission to identify, categorize, locate and track people, animals and objects. RFID systems are composed of three components –an interrogator or reader, a transponder, commonly called a tag, and a computer or other data processing system. The tag is plaid on or in the object you want to identify or track. There is no need for contact or a direct line of sight between the reader and the tag. This means that tags can also be imbedded in or hidden inside objects that need to be identified.

 RFID readers have electronic components that send and receive a signal to and from the tag, a microprocessor that checks and decodes the data it receives, and memory that stores the data for later transmission if necessary. The reader has an antenna to transmit and receive signals. The antenna is enclosed with the reader electronics.

 The main component of the RFID tag is a custom integrated circuit or silicon chip. This chip controls the communication to the reader. The chip has a section of memory that stores the identification code or other data, and the content of the memory is transmitted to the reader when the chip is activated. The tag has an antenna to the chip and a tuning capacitor. The amount of data stored in the tag can range from 40 bits unique fixed code to 1kbits of addressable memory.

 IN this system , the reader emits an electromagnetic field in a zone of which depends on the operating frequency of the system and size of the antenna . when tag passes through this zone , the tag detects the signal from the reader and begins to transmit the data stored within the tag back to the reader. The signal generated by the reader provides timing information as well as enough energy to provide power to the tag .

The significant advantage of all types of RFID systems is the non contact , non line of sight nature of the technology . tags can be read through a variety of substances and in visually and environmentally  challenging conditions , where barcodes or other optically read technologies would be use less.

What is a Smart RF-ID tag”?

Businesses around the world are using RFID Technology to give themselves a competitive advantage . here are some of the benefits you can expect fro an RFID system.

 Improved Efficiency and Productivity.

  • Hands off, fully automatic identification, counting , tracking , sorting and routing is possible.
  • Improved data collection and identification.
  • Helps eliminate Errors.
  • Improves inventory control.
  • Speed up and improve material handling and asset management.
  • Can provide automatic access control.

 Improved Profitability

·        Reduced operating cost

·        Better asset management

·        Reduce product cycle times.

·        Enhance quality control.

 Reduce maintenance cost compared to other automatic identification systems.

 Technical Specifications of the “ Smart RFID Tags”

 RFID System consists of transponder and read/write unit. Both have internal intelligence and an antenna that receives, sends and stores data. the read/write unit  -e.g. computer palmtop.   The read distance of common RF-id Systems –passive systems without battery – is typically I foot on a desktop reader and I meter –between 3 and 4 feet- on gate reader.

The necessary components – integrated circuits and antennas – are specially chosen to fit the needs of mass – market applications 13.56 MHz is a world wide frequency supported by may organizations  for an international RF-id standard.

Common Applications with our clients are:

  • Process control
  • Item management and identification –asset tracking-
  • Automated sorting
  • Automated billing
  • Product authentication.
  • Access control.
  • Protection against fraud.

With reusable facility in comparison to barcode , paper tags , stickers etc, the RFID technology is far superior.

                                    The proposed Solution

The common problem faced inventory management and asset tracking. We propose to automate both through ONE RF-ID SMART TAG for ease of working.

All the products are tagged with RFID Smart Tags . the storage capacity of the tag will be of 56/ bytes tat are reusable , the electronic data to be stored in the tag is the product code, product details , issuance details and other required information. As the antenna and the chip is concealed inside the tag not visible the visual area can be printed with the customer logo or any visuals desired by the customer.

The tags can further be reprogrammed for reuse.

The whole process on automation drastically brings down the time consumed in issue and receipt by cutting down manual processes of verifying the contents , further it also minimizes the possibility of human error intentional or unintentional and automates the complete asset management process making online availability of data to various departments for better control and MIS generation for he management.

The process can be fine tuned to suit the requirement of the customer on system study of his work environment and present problems faced in his working environment for better control and management which will lead to overall efficiency and increasing in revenue.
