One for All: Reading Multiple Access Control Badge Types with one RFID/NFC Reader

Hello.  안녕하세요.  Bonjour.  こんにちは.If you could read those 4 languages, you would be part of the 3% of people who can speak 4 languages fluently.Well, the Radio-frequency Identification (RFID)/ Near-field Communication (NFC) world is very similar to the one we live in today.There are thousands of tags that speak different languages and integrating all of them into one system can be a hard task to conquer.But with love technology, it’s simple and quick. Reading RFID/NFC Tags To many businesses, RFID/NFC tags play an integral role in everyday tasks.Driving on toll

Magic is Real: Reading RFID/NFC Data Straight into Your Mobile Device

I work with technology and data on a daily basis.They seem to be friendly.However, making them talk to each other is a whole different picture. The struggle is real. However, there are some ways to get RFID/NFC data straight into your mobile device. RFID & NFC Scans to iOS & Android RFID & NFC scans are sent in packets, like vehicles driving on a road. RFID & NFC scans are commonly used by applications in ASCII, DECimal and HEXidecimal formats.These data packets are sent one by one, similar to vehicles

Which RFID Readers Go with Which Tags?

Decoding the Different Types of RFID There are many different ISO standards, protocols, and physical differences between various RFID tag types.  Choosing compatible readers and tags can be tricky, especially for an RFID novice. For the purposes of this explanation, we’ll only focus on passive RFID, specifically, Low-Frequency (LF), High-Frequency (HF), Near Field Communication (NFC), and NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF). For a little bit of background, here are some examples of how each type of RFID tag is used. Passive RFID examples:♦  Employee and / or Student Access control
