Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS PERTAINING TO INSTALLATION OF AN RFID-TAG READER SYSTEM
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL CONCERNANT L'INSTALLATION D'UN SYSTÈME DE LECTEUR D'ÉTIQUETTE RFID
Abstract
(EN)
One or more RFID-tag readers are operably coupled to one or more RFID-tag reader antennas that are installed to primarily read RFID tags in a given hallway. Accordingly, at least a majority of the area within storage spaces that border the given hallway are without sufficient reader energy to power those RFID tags. Accordingly, many, most, or even all of the items that are stored in the storage space will receive insufficient reader energy to power their corresponding RFID tags.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un ou plusieurs lecteurs d'étiquette RFID qui sont couplés de manière fonctionnelle à une ou plusieurs antennes de lecteur d'étiquette RFID qui sont installées pour lire principalement des étiquettes RFID dans un passage donné. Par conséquent, au moins une majorité de la zone à l'intérieur d'espaces de stockage qui bordent le passage donné sont sans énergie de lecteur suffisante pour alimenter ces étiquettes RFID. Par conséquent, plusieurs, la plupart, ou même tous les articles qui sont stockés dans l'espace de stockage recevront une énergie de lecteur insuffisante pour alimenter leurs étiquettes RFID correspondantes.
