If you are considering using RFID tags to help improve asset tracking and management in your business here is a simple affordable starter kit to help you along the learning curve. The package includes a bench top UHF RFID reader/writer, tag read/write software and a pack of 10 assorted tags.
The reader and 'near field' antenna are built into one compact unit which connects to a any PC via USB. It has a very short read range in order to avoid interference from other nearby tags or readers. The accompanying Codegate software is designed to read or write one tag at a time, giving all available tag details and accessible stored data. A keyboard injector app is also included to configure the reader operate in a similar way to a bar code scanner by passing tag data to the keyboard buffer so that it will transfer directly to the active application.
The RFID starter kit is a great support tool for use with a PC to read and write to any UHF RFID tag. If you want to experiment with a higher performance reader with separate antennas for longer read range and more detailed performance data then choose the Advanced RFID Starter Kit option.
