Low frequency radio frequency identification transponders have become a common means of acquiring data at livestock collection points, such as markets, feed yards and packing plants. However, there are currently multiple LF RFID technologies that exist in the marketplace, the LF RFID Half Duplex and LF RFID Full Duplex technologies. In response, ASTM International Committee F10 on Livestock, Meat and Poultry Evaluation Systems is currently developing a proposed new standard, ASTM WK27546, Test Method for Acquisition Distance of Low Frequency RFID Transponders. The proposed standard is under the jurisdiction of Subcommittee F10.20 on Device Performance Criteria.
Participation in the development of ASTM WK27546 from all interested parties, particularly from RFID technology manufacturers, is welcome.
