Passive RFID is the simplest of the three RFID configurations. Passive RFID tags are made up of integrated Circuit (IC) and an Antenna. Passive RFID tags do not include a constant power source or a battery. Passive RFID tags are simpler to manufacture than active RFID tags and therefore cost considerably less. Traditionally assets, pallets, cases and linked items used barcodes in receiving. Workers had to scan them one by one. With an RFID tag, all the items can be read at the same time by a handheld or by an RF portal reader which is usually placed on the dock door where they are unloaded from trucks. The exact method can be revised as per on-ground practices to reach the optimum accuracy levels.
Active RFID tags are typically used for large assets including big size products/storage, cargo containers, rail cars and containers etc. that requires transmission over long distances. Active RFID tags need power sources and transmitter/reader, require limited maintenance and are with added cost than Passive RFID tags. In tracking products throughout the supply chain, often active and passive RFID systems are combined to provide gain visibility where products are in real-time.
