Passive RFID for Tool Management

Passive RFID can help provide automation for tool tracking. A passive RFID tool tracking system will typically consist of a Passive Fixed Reader at a strategic position to track tool movements. Handheld RFID scanners can also be deployed for tool crib checkout operations.

Passive RFID has several key advantages for tool tracking

  • Speeds up operations as many passive tags can be read simultaneously.

  • Passive tags are relatively inexpensive.

  • Passive tags are available in many sizes that can fit even the very smallest tool.
