Abracon ART Passive RFID Tags are ceramic tags without a chip and are matched with a compatible IC for use. These passive tags are activated momentarily by the radio frequency (RF) scan of an Abracon ARR RFID reader. The electrical current is enough to transmit an ID number. The reader continuously generates an RF carrier wave. When the passive tag is within its read range, this signal powers it. Applications for Abracon ART Passive RFID Tags and Readers include logistics and inventory management, industrial automation, and contactless smart cards.
