sheepRFID or EID (Electronic Identification) has proven to be the most effective technology for livestock tracking and traceability in disease control and breeding management. It is currently used on cattle, sheep, goat and swine within the farming community.

Low frequency (LF) RFID, with an operating frequency of 125-134.2 kHz, has been adopted internationally for animal identification applications following many years of development, exhaustive testing and practical field evaluation.

The International Standards Organisation (ISO) and the Australian/New Zealand standards for the electronic identification of animals are based on LF 134.2 kHz RFID technology (ISO11784, ISO 11785, ISO 24631, AS5018/5019). These are widely accepted standards by ICAR, DEFRA, MLA, and NAIT which require stringent regulatory approval for all transponders that operate in their
respective countries.

PTS RFID technology provides traceability solutions for our clients, enabling the use of low, medium, high and ultra-high frequencies.

Our solutions provide quick and seamless automated recording for all primary supply chain processes in the logistic, health and livestock sectors as well as in supermarkets, airports and schools,
amongst others.

PTS RFID Roadmap•    Research on RFID technologies since 2000
•    Intensive research on innovative tag designs for the livestock industry in 2005
•    Patented 3 RFID tag transponders for the livestock industry
•    Manufactured millions of RFID tags for sale in the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand, etc.
•    First to patent and build a single-piece locking RFID tag with a 1.9cm diameter
•    First to patent and build a dual tag (VID & RFID) with flexible interlocking application
•    First to design an RFID antenna module on a PDA reader to read within a distance of 14 cm on     a sheep tag
•    First to patent and build a cattle tag with a swiveling design, and is lighter in weight and smaller     in size


Applications•    Health products in hospitals and welfare homes
•    Authentication of medicine/vaccines
•    High production WIP volumes in manufacturing
•    Apparel and garment products in retail
