RFID Coupling: The relationship between a tag and a reader

Coupling refers to the method used by the reader and tag to lock or “couple” together. It is how the reader knows there is a tag available to be read.

There are two primary types of coupling that happen in an RFID system. These are inductive and radiative coupling.

In general, low and high frequency systems couple using a method called ‘inductive coupling’. In an inductively coupled system, the reader/antenna creates a magnetic field and that magnetic field causes the tag within range to “couple” with the reader and send electricity through the conductive antenna of the tag. This sends power through the tag and allows for the stored data to be read.

RFID and the Differences in Passive, Semi-Passive and Active Tags

There are many different ways to dissect RFID tag categories: Low Frequency, High Frequency and Ultra High Frequency tags. Operating protocol divisions also exist within those; even the antenna or chips themselves have different properties and may be customised depending on the application need. While there are many different classifications, aside from  frequency, one of the biggest classification categories is whether the tag is passive, semi-passive or active. 

Below we’ll discuss an overview of what it means when you see this designation for an RFID tag or label.

RFID Decreases Loss of Resolution in Capillary Electrophoresis

Capillary Electrophoresis requires using consumables that are within manufacturer specifications in order to help ensure that there is not a loss of resolution (LOR). Devices that leverage RFID can help enforce these specifications, which in turn helps to prevent LOR and ensures quality output by the device.

There are a number of different parameters that can be analyzed in order to perform this, we’ll take a look at a few here.
