Many materials used in the production of goods can have an adverse affect on the performance of an RFID system. This test method qualifies the performance of an RFID system applied to a unit load.
This test method is intended for systems used exclusively within the United States. Additional test standards from ISO or other standards bodies may apply to internationally handled goods and may include additional test scenarios not outlined in this test method.View Less
1.1 This test method quantitatively evaluates the readability of radio frequency identification (RFID) pallet transponders placed on pallet loads that are mechanically handled by material handling equipment such as fork trucks, pallet jacks, and automated guided vehicle systems.
1.2 This test method is intended for use in laboratory settings that simulate, as closely as is practicable, the distribution environment of the product being tested.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
