The growing demand for RFID tagging
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags are an electronic information store capable of housing data ranging from a simple identification number to several kilobytes of data. They are often employed to electronically identify equipment on offshore platforms, petrochemical plants and refineries. Maintenance history and manufacturing details are recorded on RFID tags eliminating long paper trails and ensuring it is easily accessible either from a web-based interface or an RFID reader. This improved availability of information significantly reduces costly down-time making maintenance processes much cheaper.
