RFID Applications are almost infinite, only limited by imagination. When you drive on an electronic toll road, make a contactless payment, borrow a book from your local library or confidently purchase quality produce from your local retailer, chances are that the process has been enabled by RFID. Enhanced security, greater safety, lower costs, higher efficiency, reduced errors, reduced theft and more effective delivery of healthcare services are just some of the benefits. A list of some popular applications is provided below. Electro-Com can assist with further information for your specific application requirements.

RFID technology enables individual animal identification for automated feeding, weighing, milking and general animal welfare management. Individual identification also meets the requirements of national traceability systems, such as the world-leading Australian National Livestock Identification System (NLIS). The NLIS is Australia’s system for the identification and traceability of cattle, sheep and goats. NLIS reflects Australia’s commitment to biosecurity and food safety and provides a competitive advantage in a global market.
Electro-Com provides a full range of reading systems, fixed readers, race readers, handheld readers, stick readers and OEM modules that meet the technical requirements of the NLIS.
Electro-Com supply RFID tags and readers that are used for the effective identification and management of a wide range of assets.

RFID technology is now deployed in thousands of libraries worldwide. RFID enabled books increase the efficiency of library operations through automated self-check kiosks, book return chutes, inventory management systems and security gates. The library customer experience is enhanced through this improved efficiency, with greater product and staff availability.
Electro-Com is the long term partner of German technology company Feig Electronic, the undisputed leader in RFID hardware for deployment in library automation systems. We provide a complete range of mid and long range OEM reader modules, antennas, library gates and handheld inventory readers.
RFID sports timing systems based RFID technology can collect perfect timing data at major marathons, fun runs and other events. RFID sports timing systems have transponders attached to the athletes. Timing starts when the band passes over an antenna at the starting line. The process is completed as the runner crosses an antenna at the finish line, eliminating time consuming manual recording and associated data input errors.
A major issue in the supply chain management is product loss or shrinkage. Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology can be used to provide a more efficient way to identify and track items at various stages throughout a supply chain and give users increased levels of real-time product and asset visibility.
RFID can be used in retail to automatically receive shipments, and increase visibility of merchandise in the warehouse and retail shelves. Retail systems can also enhance the customer experience through the delivery of detailed, targeted product information, directly to the consumer.
Electro-Com brings a new dimension to contactless payment through the industry leading FEIG contactless payment readers. Built on over 40 years of RF hardware design experience, Feig’s robust and reliable cVend and myAXXESS contactless readers have EMVCo certification and are ready for seamless integration into unattended payment, vending and ticketing systems.
Electro-Com has a range of HF 13.56MHz products well suited to healthcare and pharmaceutical applications, such as robust laundry tags, adhesive labels, RFID tags and readers.
13.56MHz RFID is the preferred technology due to the specific characteristics of this operating frequency and a wide range of approvals for application in pathology and with blood products.
Our UHF RFID products and active RTLS solutions also have numerous applications in healthcare for identification and location of critical assets, equipment and personnel.
