Study Published in JAMA on RFID Interference Ignores Real-World Use Cases, According to SkyeTek
Date:7/14/2008

y are readers that emit 1 Watt

or less of output power at the antenna (i.e., not including antenna

gain).

-- The reason why the industry has standardized around 1 Watt is

straightforward:

-- 1 Watt is the maximum UHF RFID output power as specified by the

FCC in North America as well as several other major countries

around the world.

-- Readers capable of 1 Watt are capable of reading RFID tagged

inventory and assets several meters away -- plenty of range for

the majority of tracking applications.

-- In the event that a 3 Watt reader is necessary, the presumption is

that there is a requirement to track items well in excess of the

5m - 10m that a mainstream 1 Watt reader is capable. Yet, the study

finds the vast majority of its EMI at 0.5m or less, distances for

which a 3 Watt reader would not realistically be used.

-- The study also ignores passive HF RFID, which is a substantial, if not

the dominant, type of RFID used in hospitals.

-- HF RFID operates at 13.56 MHz, typically operates at lower power

levels than UHF, and uses the magnetic portion of the radio wave to

communicate between reader and tag.

-- These characteristics make HF much less susceptible to EMI with

adjacent devices than UHF.

-- This is the same technology used for security badge access into

offices and buildings.

Quotes from Rob Balgley, CEO of SkyeTek

-- "We feel it is important to provide clarification around the results of

this study because RFID continues to drastically improve patient care

in the healthcare industry."

-- "While the results do a good job of indicating a limit to the amount of

RF power applied around medical devices, the test did not account for

the mo
