Can phones read UHF RFID?

Can phones read UHF RFID?

Sorry, Carl, that’s currently impossible, as there are no smartphones that contain an ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) reader. Some phones, such as Samsung’s Nexus S model, have a Near-Field Communication (NFC) reader in it.

What is a UHF RFID reader?

A UHF RFID reader is a device using an Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) range, between 840 MHz and 960 MHz. Its extended read range compared to HF NFC readers enables one reader to interact with many tags at the same time, at a very high speed, within distances of tens of meters.

Can NFC read UHF RFID?

No. Though both technologies are RF enabled but they have different frequency bands(NFC= 13.56 MHz , RFID(UHF band)=860-960 MHz) which separates them. Also, NFC works for distances below 20 cm.


The Ultra High Frequency (UHF) band is the frequency range from 300 MHz to 1 GHz. RFID systems that operate in this frequency band are called Ultra High Frequency (UHF) RFID Systems. These tags cannot easily be read while attached to objects containing water and animal tissues because water absorbs UHF waves.

Is NFC and RFID the same?

NFC stands for Near-Field Communication. NFC is also based on the RFID protocols. The main difference to RFID is that a NFC device can act not only as a reader, but also as a tag (card emulation mode). NFC systems operate on the same frequency as HF RFID (13.56 MHz) systems.

What is the cost of RFID tags?

NEW DELHI: The focus on indigenisation of radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags, which are being used for all railway wagons, coaches and locomotives, has helped reduce the cost drastically. While in 2017, the per tag cost was estimated around Rs 1,000, domestic players are making them available at Rs 250.

Is NFC cheaper than RFID?

NFC Costs. The NFC chip in your credit card, for example, is roughly equivalent to the cost of a passive RFID tag—both cost only pennies. An NFC system becomes more expensive when is used for dual-mode technologies, like a smartphone application or credit card communicating with a credit card terminal.

What is UHF RFID used for?

Passive UHF RFID Applications Passive UHF RFID systems are used in hundreds of different applications such as tool tracking , IT asset tracking, race timing, and laundry management. New applications for these tags are being discovered frequently due primarily to the tags’ long read range and low cost.

Where is UHF RFID used?

Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) RFID UHF tags are much cheaper to manufacture, and as such are commonly used in retail inventory tracking, pharmaceutical anti-counterfeiting, and other applications where large volumes of tags are required.

What is the read range of the UHF Compact Reader/Writer?

This multiple communication interface UHF compact reader/writer is compliant to the ISO18000-6C standard and has a read range of up to 11.8” (30 cm). This global, versatile, and rugged integrated UHF reader provides a long reading range of up to 42.6 ft (13 m) with the availability of PoE and dense reader mode (DRM).
