Even though RFID Seems to be faster than bar-coding process but the comparison between the two shows the following: •There is a big difference between the two systems for read range. For a passive Ultra High Frequency (UHF) for up to 40 feet and active RFID For up to 100 feet, there is no read range required in most cases but a bar code system requires having read range from several inches up to several feet.
Also, thousands of pieces can be scanned in much less time as compared to barcode scanning.
