Avery Dennison RFID, a leading RFID technology provider, has added a comprehensive online training module to help those new to the industry understand and familiarise themselves with RFID systems.
Available at rfid.averydennison.com, RFID 101 combines a live narrator with animations, photos and video to walk viewers through technology basics, applications & markets, system components, RFID label converting and tag testing & quality. Each main topic is a separate module, allowing the viewer to watch the presentation from start to finish or to customize the presentation by watching select modules based on their own experience or schedule.
Dan Cadigan, senior strategic project leader, BP Lubes - Americas Supply Chain, said, Avery Dennisons RFID 101 tutorial is probably the best introduction to the technology overall that I have come upon. After watching the training module, I have a better understanding of how RFID applications can streamline my business operations.
Content for RFID 101 was developed by the technical team at Avery Dennison RFIDs Atlanta Technical Center (ATC). Much of the content was inspired by Avery Dennisons work with myriad end users and other RFID stakeholders who have visited the ATC over the last couple of years for free product testing and other technical services & training.
We produced RFID 101 to help people get up to speed quickly on RFID without spending a lot of time and money, said Bob Cornick, vice president and general manager at Avery Dennison RFID. We are dedicated to doing all we can to ensure successful RFID implementations. RFID 101 is just one of many initiatives we offer to help manufacturers, retailers, and other potential end users, understand and deploy RFID in the real world.
The subjects covered by RFID 101 are:

ABCs of EPC Electronic Product Codes and other industry standards.
