This is where I will put all the information regarding RFIDs
1. Bought low frequency rfid evaluation kit from Texas Instrument fro $284.
> Zhipu and I did some basic tests with the low frequency rfids. We were interested in determining the max. velocity of the tags relative to the readers beyond which the reader will not read. We did the experiment using the vision system and the turn table and got an estimate of about 2 m/s. Therefore, the max velocity of the robot wrt to the tags could be 2 m/s, if we use the low frequency tags.
> We abandoned the low frequency rfids since it could not read more than one tags at a time. So we ordered the Series 6000- HF-I Mid-Range RFID evaluation kit from Texas instrument.
2. Bought Series 6000- HF-I Mid-Range RFID evaluation kit for $645.
> No test has been done so far. > The individual readers from TI cost around $180. Bulk rate is yet to be determined.
> POC for TI rfid is Kim Knaack Product Specialist Supervisor Digi-Key Corporation (800) 338-4105 x1535 Fax (218) 681-3380 email@example.com
I think digi-Key is the contractor for TI rfids. They handle all the shipping and support for Texas Instrument.
> Alternatively, contacted Todd Dirks Director of Sales SkyeTek Inc. Direct (303)-615-8050 Phone (720)-565-0441 Fax (720)-565-8989 He sent me the quote for bulk rate for the tags and readers. It is available as a pdf document. I will put it in the Wiki system. Look for skyetek_quote.pdf. The tags and readers can be mixed in interms of the manufacturer. As long as the readers support the tags. So we can buy tags from TI and readers from Skyetek, for example.
