Barcode Scanning

Barcode scanning is everywhere from purchasing at any retail store, renting a car, attending major events, flying, and even going to the doctor. Barcode scanning helps organizations track information, which increases productivity and efficiency.

 

What is a Barcode?

A barcode is a visual pattern with encoded information readable by a machine. There are two types of barcodes, linear and 2D. The most visually recognizable is the Universal Product Code (UPC), a linear barcode that consists of the barcode itself and a 12-digit UPC number. The first six numbers of the barcode are the manufacturer’s identification number. The next five digits represent the item’s number. The last number is a so-called check digit, enabling the barcode scanner to determine if the barcode was scanned correctly or not.

Radio Frequency Identification

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a method for collecting data using radio waves to exchange information between RFID tags and RFID readers. A direct line of sight is not required, in contrast to barcode. Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) RFID readers are able to read from and write to hundreds of tags simultaneously.

RFID Pedestal

With the KeyCop Identification Gate, CaptureTech has developed a UHF RFID pedestal specifically for key and/or asset management. RFID gate or RFID portal are synonyms.

The UHF RFID gate is a physical gate with an integrated fixed UHF RFID reader and antennas. The gate scans all tagged items that move through it, whether KeyCops or other assets tagged with UHF tags.

Why ultra-high frequency RFID?

RFID systems can be broken down by the frequency band within which they operate: low frequency (LF), high frequency (HF), and ultra-high frequency (UHF).
