RFID Concept

Suppliers of Radio-frequency identification (RFID) Microchips in South Africa for Cattle, Game, Cats, Dogs, Stock and Horses.

  • Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags (Transponder / Microchip) contain electronically-stored information which will be transmitted to a Reader when the reader energises the battery in the transponder.

    General Microchip information

    • The RFID transponder (also called “chip”) is a very small electronic wonder, packed in a bio glass capsule.
    • The transponder is as small as a rice corn.
    • The transponder contains a radio sender unit and a radio receiver unit.
    • The transponder is coated with an anti-migration coating (the same material is used to coat pacemakers).
    • The transponder is ISO compliant (11784/11785).
    • The chip is injected under the skin of an animal and stays there for lifetime.
    • The injection is as simple and harmless as a regular vaccination.
    • The chip only becomes active when a reader transmits radio signals and activates the chip.
    • The unique number can be read on the reader’s display.
    • The transponder has no battery and can be read lifelong.
    • The number of the transponder is stored in databases together with the personal details of the owner.
    • The transponder has a worldwide unique number (300 billion possibilities).
