Passive vs. Active RFID

The main difference in active and passive RFID tags is that active tags use a battery power source to broadcast their signal automatically, and a passive RFID tag does not have any power source.  Passive tags only transmit RFID signals when receiving a radio frequency energy from an RFID reader that is within range. 

When considering which type of RFID tags to use, there are many different factors that should be considered. Consult an experienced vendor for assistance evaluating the best options for your company.
