  23. 23. Why UHF RFID?
  24. 24. Why UHF RFID? RFID TagsRFID Tags UHF Tags Conventionally square and easily noticeable Slim, can be hidden like EM strip, with greater read range and rate Vs. HF Tags
  25. 25. Why UHF RFID? • No line of sight required • Read multiple items simultaneously • Small tag size which is easily hidden in the book like EM Strip • Longer read range for wider library entrance, handy inventory, and multiple items processing • Fast read/write speed allows better detection, quicker transaction and speedy inventory • Mature technology with many successful implementations • Lower cost enable quick ROI and lower running cost
  26. 26. UHF RFID - Safety & Health
  27. 27. UHF RFID – Safety & Health Radiation Parameters Basic parameter: Frequency and power Radiation pattern: Linear, Circular or Bi-polar Radiation field: Near field, Transition zone, Far field
  28. 28. UHF RFID – Safety & Health Electromagnetic Radiation Electromagnetic radiation is energy that is propagated through free space or through a material medium Power Density The amount of power per unit area in a radiated electromagnetic field, usually measured as W/m2 Thermal Effects Heating created by oscillating frequency passing over body cells. There are national and international standard safety limits for exposure to various frequencies. Exposure Limits (μW/cm2, mW/cm2, W/m2) Radiation intensity (Power density) Cumulative effects, continuous exposure time (density * time) Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) The rate at which energy is absorbed by human body when exposed to electromagnetic field
  29. 29. Electromagnetic Radiation Safety & Health Standards Related organization and Governing Body International: WHO, IRPA Local: IDA (Singapore), AITI (Brunei), MII (China), OFTA (HK), MCIT (India), Postel (Indonesia), MCMC (Malaysia), DOTC (Philippines), TRC (Sri Lanka), NCC (Taiwan), NTC (Thailand), MIC (Vietnam), MED (NZ), ACMA (Aust), EMF Bio-effects High power: >10 mW/cm2, significant thermal effects Mid power: 1~10 mW/cm2, showing sign of thermal effects Low power: <1 mW/cm2, no thermal effects Standardization There is no international standard on permissible exposure levels but most commonly adopted standards from USA, Russia and Europe.
  30. 30. FCC on Permissible Exposure Limit Occupational /Controlled Exposure Cover employee who are exposed to RF fields and made fully aware and can exercise control over their exposure Allowable exposure for full working day at power density 0.1~1mW/cm2 with some forms of protection. Exercise special consideration to pregnant women General Population /Uncontrolled Exposure Cover persons who are exposed to RF fields may not be made fully aware. Allowable exposure not more than 0.1mW/cm2 or 1mW/cm2 for not more than 30 minutes The FCC maximum permissible exposure limits are established to prevent thermal effect of PFR using units of power density.
  31. 31. Electromagnetic Radiation – INLIB Self Check in/out Station UHF Reader output power (EIRP) P=0.5W, Antenna gain G=5dB. What is the safe operating distance from the Self Check in/out Station? As there is loss of power at antenna the Adjusted gain G(dB) = 10log5 = 3dB Adjusted gain G = 3dB, Power density S = 1mW/cm2 = 10W/m2 Safe Operating distance for Self Check R = (PG/4 πS)1/2= (0.5×3/4 π×10)1/2 = 0.1 m = 10cm Other INLIB UHF RFID equipment power (EIRP) setting – INLIB Tag conversion station 0.3W, INLIB RFID EAS Gate 1W, INLIB Staff Station 0.3W Safe Operating distance for Staff Station R = (PG/4 πS)1/2= (0.3×3/4 π×10)1/2 = 0.08m = 8cm Safe Operating distance for RFID EAS Gate R= (PG/4 πS)1/2= (1×3/4 π×10)1/2 = 0.15m = 15cm Compare to typical HF power setting – HF Tag conversion 1W, HF Self Check in/out Station 1~5W, HF RFID EAS Gate 5~10W
  32. 32. UHF RFID – Safety & Health Conclusion Electromagnetic Exposure Limit and exposure time is playing an important part. EMF Thermal effects depends on individual human physical and psychological condition. Electromagnetic radiation exists in both HF and UHF system and the UHF power is much lower than HF system. INLIB UHF RFID Library system is compliant to international and national standard requirement for electromagnetic radiation limit. INLIB UHF RFID Library System employs lower RF power for short operating distance, suitable for 24 hours operation at safe operating distance of minimum 10cm for Self Check and 8cm for Staff Station. INLIB UHF RFID Library System is designed to switch off the RF power when not in use for scanning. This keep the exposure time to RF radiation exposure to minimum.
