UHF

What is UHF?

UHF, the English acronym for Ultra High Frequency, is an automatic wireless communication technology that allows you to read data from a great distance.

RFID is an automatic identification technology based on devices called RFID tags.

The RFID tags are divided into two large categories:

  • passive tags: devices that do not have their own power source
  • active tags: devices that have a source of their own energy

Passive tags operate mainly on three frequencies: Low Frequency (LF), High Frequency and Ultra High Frequency (UHF)

UHF tags are successfully used in the world of logistics and retail thanks to the possibility of reading data from great distances, ranging from 8 -10 meters.

The application of RFID tags with UHF technology for logistics and inventory in the industrial sector is carried out by taking advantage of portable handheld readers that carry out readings over a great distance.

Improve Operational Efficiency with the UHF RFID System

Improve Operational Efficiency with the UHF RFID System

The great expansion of e-commerce has powerfully contributed to the increase in the traceability requests of consumer products and the need for the simplification of operations in order to improve the efficiency of production and distribution processes.

The RFID system paired with UHF technology offers massive data in real time and is successfully used in the Retail sector to facilitate the traceability of the supply chain and improve operational efficiency in various business applications. 

Tags can be applied to any type of product from the luxury garments of the fashion world to the wine bottles of large cellars to pharmacological products.

Application of the UHF System in the Industrial Sector

Application of the UHF System in the Industrial Sector

The RFID system joined UHF technology has a vast range of uses and applications in different fields in the Retail sector as well as beyond.

The RFID market is widely used in the luxury and clothing fashion sector but it is growing exponentially in all other industrial sectors (automotive, aviation, cosmetics, logistics, pharmaceuticals and the food industry) with over a billion tags installed only on these types of applications. By now indispensable for fast and efficient warehouse management and logistics of a company, it finds extensive use even in transport industries where it is a particularly useful monitoring system.

The multiple, rapid and contemporary readings of the tags applied to inventory products allow for an almost instantaneous inventory via an IP or WIFI network. The creation of a RFID portal that uses UHF (or HF technology, depending on the needs) is the most advanced and efficient automation in the industrial sector until today. 

RFID allows you to obtain an exceptional anti-counterfeit and anti-shoplifting system, and it is successfully used to track and monitor the vital cycle of goods or products, and it finds extensive use in luxury products and fashion retail.

RFID readers speed up data transmission and control the processes between the different company sectors, but its advantages make it a dynamic technological system, even useful for the recognition of patients and their clinical folder in the medical-sanitary sector.

F.A.Q.

What is UHF technology?

UHF, the English acronym for Ultra High Frequency', is an automatic wireless communication technology that allows you to read data from a great distance. UHF tags are successfully used in the world of logistics and retail thanks to the possibility of reading data from a great distance, ranging up to 8 -10 meters. 

NFC vs UHF: What are the differences?

UHF and NFC are two evolutions developed by RFID technology. NFC (Near Field Communication) is also called RFID HF (High Frequency) while UHF is the acronym of Ultra-High Frequency.

Both technologies consist of a radio-frequency identification system: high frequency in the case of NFC and very high frequency in the case of UHF technology.

The main difference is the frequency on which they work and as a consequence of that, the transmission distance, the reading and the processing of data.
