bar code - n. - Printed vertical bars and spaces of varying widths; letters and numbers are represented by specific patterns of bars and spaces that can be read by a bar code scanner. Newer bar code symbologies replace the vertical bars with patterns of dots, concentric circles, or text codes hidden within images.

rfid (Radio-frequency identification)- an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders. In general terms, there are two types of RFID transponders- passive and active.

  • In simple terms, a Passive RFID tag is just that- passive. It just sits there and does nothing unless it is awakened. If a reader is nearby it comes to life:
    • The Passive RFID tag only activates when a reader is nearby to supply power
    • The reader sends out a radio frequency (RF) signal
    • The antennae on the tag produces a small amount of power from the magnetic field that results from the RF (radio frequency) signal
    • A response is transmitted from the tag back to the to the reader
  • Active RFID tags have their own internal power source that can generate a signal a great distance from a reader.
    • The Active RFID tag incorporates a battery for power
    • Active RFID tags are more effective over distance, through water, etc.
