RFID Sensor Systems

RFID sensor systems

RFID sensors are the combination of an RFID transponder circuit and integrated or external sensors. The entire hardware of an RFID sensor system consists of a transponder, also called a "tag", and a reader, also called a reader. In addition to identification, this combination also enables the wireless reading of sensor values and the integration of actuators. For passive, battery-free RFID sensors, the energy required for measurement and transmission is obtained from the electromagnetic field of the reader. The middleware is the last element of a complete RFID system. It handles the communication from the transponder to higher-level systems. 


Advantages of passive RFID sensor systems compared to conventional and wired solutions:

  • Wireless
  • Battery-free
  • Maintenance-free
  • Sensors for harsh environmental conditions
