You have questions. We have answers.
How do RFID readers work?
When you use an RFID reader, it produces an alternating magnetic field at a frequency of 125 / 134.2 kHz (low frequency) or 13.56 MHz (high frequency). This field supplies energy to one or more transponders (media) located in its range. At the same time, data is exchanged between the reader and transponder through this field.
What is the difference between RFID and NFC?
RFID is an overarching term, and NFC is a potential usage technology – RFID could be called the fruit, and NFC then a pear. NFC thus builds on RFID technology and is particularly widespread in many smartphones, for instance, in payment, online banking, physical access control, IoT, SmartPoster and Connection Handover (from NFC to WiFi/Bluetooth) applications.
What range can I use with an RFID reader?
Low-frequency and high-frequency RFID readers can typically be used within a distance of two to ten centimeters depending on the transponder, your reader, and the surrounding conditions. There are special applications that give you ranges up to 25 centimeters. The relatively short range can be viewed as a clear affirmative action by an individual. For instance, a door lock will not release until the user has placed his or her ID directly in front of the reader. It will not release unintentionally when the user simply happens to pass by it.
