What is the difference between barcode readers and barcode verifiers as well as quality control and grading 1D, 2D and Direct Part Mark (DPM) barcodes.
What is the difference between barcode readers and barcode verifiers as well as quality control and grading 1D, 2D and Direct Part Mark (DPM) barcodes.

The barcode verification process differs from barcode reading in several important ways, while barcode readers are designed to read barcode data, a barcode verifier ensures that barcodes are marked correctly and meet an industry’s standards and quality for ease of reading barcode along the supply chain rather than an individual producer’s quality threshold. Compared to barcode readers, barcode verifiers are a superior measure of symbol readability because they normalize the range of performance among various types of readers, from camera and laser to handheld and fixed-mount. While a barcode readers are designed specifically to read barcodes, a barcode verifier ensures the barcode data is formatted correctly and confirms barcodes can be read by all scanners in the supply chain and will be able to pinpoint the reason why a barcode will not scan or read easily. The barcode verifiers will allow you to prints reports listing barcode grades to certify they meet industry standards such as industry standards compliance ISO/IEC 15415, 15426-2, TR-29158 (AIM DPM) Companies should improve their barcode quality to meet industry and application standards and ease the flow of materials in the supply chain from brand owners and manufacturers to packagers and retailers, people across industries use barcodes to track their products from production to the point of sale. A failure to scan properly can be catastrophic, slowing down production lines and causing costly reprints, wasted product, and chargebacks. Barcode verifiers guide producers through the marking process to create codes which meet required quality standards and demonstrate compliance with printed quality reports.

Understanding various different types of RFID Solutions and Systems and different frequencies used

Radio Frequency IdentiFication (RFID) systems can be broken down by the frequency band within which they operate, there is low frequency (LF), high frequency (HF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF). There are also two broad categories of systems—passive and active RFID. Various different types of RFID solutions and systems and different frequencies used the frequencies and types of RFID systems. RFID systems are often categorized by their operating frequency band. Frequency refers to the size of the radio waves used to communicate between system components. RFID systems throughout the world operate in low frequency (LF), high frequency (HF), and ultra-high frequency (UHF) bands. Radio waves behave differently at each of these frequencies and there are advantages and disadvantages associated with using each frequency band. For example, if an RFID system operates at a lower frequency, it has a slower data read rate, but increased capabilities for reading near or on metal or liquid surfaces. If a system operates at a higher frequency, it generally has faster data transfer rates and longer read ranges, but more sensitivity to radio wave interference caused by liquids and metals in the environment. However technology innovations in recent years have made it possible to use ultra-high frequency RFID systems around liquids and metals.

What frequencies does RFID technology use and the reason why and to serve a range of applications and purpose for each.

RFID passive tags and labels bring significant advantages that are ideal for low cost and long lifetime. However, some use cases have differing requirements. In addition to passive RFID, there are other types of RFID systems. Some use a battery-assisted passive tag, which increases the read range to over 30 meters. There are also active tags that incorporate more advanced circuitry and can be read at even greater distances of 100 meters or more. NFC chips utilize high-frequency (HF) RFID. In some cases, such as smartphones, it can be bidirectional to enable the sharing of data both ways within a short range of a few centimeters. However, NFC (HF) can only read one item at a time, whereas other RFID systems, such as UHF RFID, can read many tags at once. Ultra-High Frequencies (UHF) uses frequency range of 860MHz to 960MHz enable RFID tags to be read from up to five or six meters away. The combination of UHF RFID’s greater range and the ability to read many tags at once from a single reader makes passive UHF RFID the most common type used in supply chain and inventory management, and it is the RFID technology with the largest volumes of tags currently deployed. This study focuses primarily on the ways that UHF RFID is being adopted across industries. These UHF tags are particularly well suited for item-level tagging, in which large numbers of items are read on shelves or pallets, or as they pass through steps in a supply chain. There are a range of frequency ranges are used different countries.

Deeper and better understanding of HOW RFID technology works

Radio Frequency Identification - RFID technology enables the easy and with a unique identification and tracking of items with the use of a UHF RFID tags that is placed on each asset item, much like a barcode tag, and an RFID tag reader that can scan the tag from a distance typically ranging from centimetres up to dozens of meters away, depending on the type of RFID technology used. The RFID tag readers activate the tag using the appropriate radio frequency, and the tag transmits its encoded identifying data back to the reader. Importantly, unlike barcodes, certain types of RFID technologies do not require line of sight for tag reading. With this critical functionality, organizations can dramatically transform how they manage the flow of goods and the tracking of assets throughout their organizations, supply chains, and distribution. The most common RFID solutions and systems use passive tags. The tags include a small antenna and chip with limited functionality, so that they can be produced inexpensively enough to be part of the packaging. These tags are powered by the radio signal sent from the tag reader. As a result, they do not require local battery power, which saves on cost and complexity. When the tag receives the signal from the reader, the tag “wakes up” and transmits the data encoded in the tag, which typically includes a unique reference code number that references the product description (essentially the barcode SKU) as well as a unique identifier, which is a serial number. This data is received by the tag reader and then forwarded to the enterprise software systems. Used and set up correctly, typically this RFID technology is so powerful aa it provides HUGE benefits and advantage delivering greater profits and efficiencies as it gives greater visibility of knowing exactly where your valuable assets are located preventing losses and accuracy not delivered before.

Is your business prepared for Natasha’s Law? Around two million people are thought to live with a food allergy in the UK. While the fatalities for anaphylaxis are low in the UK (less than 10 per year), it still causes concern for the millions of others who are restricted with what they can eat. Under current guidelines, restaurants, takeaways and other food hospitality venues are only required to inform customers if their food contains any of the 14 most dangerous allergens, including milk, peanuts and eggs. According to the UK’s Food Regulations 2014, food that is not pre-packaged and handmade onsite does not require individual labels. How does this affect businesses? As of October 2021, all pre-packaged foods for direct sale (PPDS) must display a label showing the full ingredients list as well as potential allergens. Incorrectly or unlabelled foods for sale could result in sanctions for your business. In response to Natasha’s Law, it is vital that all packaged foods prepared either on or offsite display possibilities of cross contamination. Effectively, it will help to improve the food hospitality sector as more people will be able to confidently purchase food knowing exactly what they are consuming. For this reason, access to a label printer in your business is the simplest way to ensure that all freshly prepared packaged food complies with the new legislation. ● Businesses will need to label products prepared and packaged on site with a full ingredients list and allergen information ● Packaged sandwiches, salads, and other items made by staff earlier in the day and placed on
