RFID-Shielded Badge Holders for Security Sensitive Applications


Many large businesses and corporations may not realize that they're in serious need of a radio frequency identification (RFID) blocker. This may be because they don't fully understand with RFID technology is.

A Brief Overview of How RFID Began

RFID technology originated from bar code scanning and swiping magnetic strips. The way this works is that the item with the barcode or computer chip must come in close proximity to the reader so that it can scan the information embedded. With this method, the information can only be processed one way. Also, items can only be scanned one at a time.

How RFID Technology Has Progressed

Today, ID badges with the RFID technology embedded in them have the advantage of scanning data from further distances. Also, with RFID technology, you don't have to worry about positioning the ID card a certain way. In fact, you don't even have to take it out of your wallet! Furthermore, RFID technology can scan multiple badges at once.

How This Technology Helps Companies

This kind of breakthrough has been most helpful to prevent accidents. For government agencies and emergency healthcare facilities, personnel will be able to access entryways without having to halt or worry about running into a door. This is especially beneficial for rushed situations.

How Does RFID Technology Actually Work?

The RFID cards have a microchip with an antenna reader that has direct access to its control server. The microchip is communicating with the server to provide access to a certain entryway. The amount of distance in which the RFID card and the server communicates depends on the microchip. If you think about how cell phones are able to communicate from long distances, then you have an idea of how the RFID cards can access and collect information.

Some of the Disadvantages of RFID Technology

While this is an amazing technological stride, one must consider the disadvantages. The fact that you can access information without even having to see an ID card brings the concern of information being too accessible.
