Encoding, printing and converting

Customization

EasyRFID offers a wide range of RFID labels, made in conjunction with any type of antenna and a great choice between different materials. RFID labels can be supplied neutral, printed and / or coded.
Our Smart Labels guarantee a high degree of flexibility and customization in every aspect: available frequencies, chips, formats, sizes, materials, prints and encodings.

Encoding

RFID tags can retain information, which is encoded in its microchip.

Each RFID Tag microchip has four main memory areas:

  • Reserved memory: this memory contains the passwords relating to particular functions such as kill or access.
 
  • EPC Memory: rewritable memory which is used as an identifier in most use cases.
 
  • TID Memory: Contains the unique code entered by the manufacturer which cannot be changed.
 
  • User Memory:editable memory in cases EPC is not sufficient.

How can a RFID tag be encoded?

These memory areas can be written with different codes based on the needs. Tags can be encoded as following:

Random numeric sequence

In many applications, it is sufficient to use a random number sequence, such as the unique ID of the tags (TID).

The tag code does not provide any specific information about the object it is associated to; it is the management software that retreives the information about the object associated to the read code.

Custom numeric sequence or explicit code

The code can be directly associated to the item, in order to reduce the complexity of the system.

The usefulness of an explicit code is that it can be interpreted offline too; furthermore, when the code is printed on the label (text or 1D/2D code), it is possible to retreive item information just by reading it.

Detailed information

Large memory tags can hold more than 64000 bits: this memory slot can be used for retaining lots of data, which could be useful especially when it is not possible to access the wifi network or data traffic coverage.

This application is typical of HF/NFC frequencies; this tags are widely used for customer care.

Printing

EasyRFID provides the printing service of the labels with fixed or variable data. Here are some of the information you can print:

  • Barcode e QR Code: the coding of the tag is often combined with the affixing of the barcode to it. This can be used in case of chip verification, in case the chip is no longer functional etc.
 
  • Readable text: any text can be printed on the label such as the name of the product on which it must be affixed.
 
  • Company logo: the logo of the company that uses it can also be printed on the tag for personalization.
 
  • Immagini: vector images can be printed.

Materials

Over the years we have tested and produced labels with different materials: paper, plastic, fabric, PVC, rubber, cork etc. In fact, some specific use cases need additional support or special materials. Here are a few:

  • The application on metal : requires a special tag and a suitable substrate able to isolate the chip from the shielding material on which it is affixed.
 
  • Running tags: they require a special support that distances the chip from the body and improve the antenna reading efficiency.
 
  • Eco-friendly tag: using paper as a support for the antenna, instead of plastic, it is possible to create a more ecological tag.
 
  • Fashion and branding: labels can be manufactured with peculiar substrates of trendy color and material such as black or cork.

 

  • IP68 label tag: suitable for outdoor applications, IP68 flexible tags are even more versatile than PVC hardtags

Format

Each use case requires a format and a specific antenna .

Tags and labels manufactured by EasyRFID can be of any dimension and shape, based on the needs; furthermore, tag can be placed onto (application) or underneath (inserting) pre-cut labels in any position or orientation.

Each product can then be further customized with the encoding and printing .

Tags in pre-cut labels

Tags can be placed onto (application) or underneath (inserting) pre-cut labels in any position or orientation, making any label smart.

Applications

RFID tags can be applied on already die-cut labels, in a specific orientation and position. In some of the applications the tag must be visible, both to show the level of technological integration and as a deterrent.

Inserting

We can place tags underneath self-adhesive die-cut labels, even those already printed by third parties. Position and orientation of the tags can be customized.
