RFID Wristbands

What are RFID Wristbands and How Do They Work?

RFID stands for radio frequency Identification and is a technology that is increasing in use in many elements of everyday life, from tracking, to making card payments even more convenient. Essentially, they are a unique identifier that can be used to transmit data anywhere, at any time. Having this technology in a wristband can prove extremely handy, reducing the time required to find this in a bag. This could also prevent the unfortunate event of leaving the item behind somewhere.

RFID wristbands use electromagnetic waves to automatically identify and track the wearer. Using advanced automatic identification and data capture techniques, these wristbands are a fantastic option for a multitude of purposes.

Multipurpose RFID Technology

Thanks to the ISO / IEC encryption that is programmed into the chip before being placed into a silicone band, the RFID wristband can safely secure stored data which is essential for over-the-air privacy and authentication purposes. The ISO / IEC encoding methods also provide a unique digital footprint, ensuring that issues with traditional barcodes such as ticket pass-backs, are a thing of the past.

Due to this, these wristbands are multipurpose. Purchase yours today for an ideal way for attendees of your event to easily access certain areas and facilities within the vicinity of your venue. These chips are also ideal for wireless commerce payment methods as the wearer won't only be able to pay for items in an instant, but they'll also be less likely to lose an RFID wristband over traditional payment methods.

The possibilities and scope of what RFID wristbands are capable of is endless and is sure to become a truly integral part for any occasion you have in mind for them. For example, passive RFID systems have no internal power source and are powered by electromagnetic energy from the RFID reader which can be utilised in supply chain management. Active RFID use battery-power and broadcast their own signal, commonly used as beacons to accurately track the real-time location and offer longer read range than passive RFID systems.
