Labels & Labeling, in partnership with Avery Dennison, is to host a webinar looking at the basics of RFID on June 13.
The ‘RFID Basics’ webinar, the first in a series of three events looking at the role of RFID in the labeling industry, will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of the technology and detail the differences between the various types of RFID tags available – active, passive and battery-assisted – as well as different frequencies, how they behave and other critical aspects of RFID technology. The webinar will include a brief overview of the EPC global network, the future of ISO standards, ETSI reader regulations and the latest standardization efforts worldwide.
Choosing the right inlay and microchip to power an RFID tag is one of the most critical decisions that converters need to make for each customer, according to Avery Dennison; the right chip depends on the amount of memory, privacy features and other capabilities the customer requires. The proper inlay depends on the application needs, the read distance required and other factors. This webinar will educate how to sort through the options and select the appropriate transponder and inlay for a customer’s needs. The components of an RFID system and terms to understand will also be covered.
L&L North America editor Chelsea McDougall is to chair the webinar, with a Q&A session to follow the presentation, which will be given by George Dyche, director of RFID innovation and product management at Avery Dennison.
The webinar will take place at 09:30 EST on June 13, and you can register for free here.
The webinar will also be available as a podcast to download and listen to again.
