Frequently Asked Questions / What frequency do IDBLUE RFID readers work on?

IDBLUE.HF is a High Frequency (HF) RFID reader able to read HF tags at 13.56 MHz using the ISO15693 protocol. For more information, please see our IDBLUE.HF product page.

IDBLUE.UHF is a Ultra High Frequency (UHF) RFID reader able to read UHF tags at 902MHz to 928MHz (915MHz center frequency) using the EPC Gen 2, ISO 18000-6C protocol. For more information, please see our IDBLUE.UHF product page.

NOTE: The UHF spectrum is regulated independently by country (which is different than the HF spectrum). Please refer to the EPCglobal > Implementation page (under Section UHF Regulations) for more detailed information. To make sure there are no compatibility issues, the UHF tag and reader have to be using compatible frequency ranges.

To determine if IDBLUE.HF or IDBLUE.UHF devices are a best fit for your project depends on the tags you want to use as well as how you want to use our devices. Our Sales Team can provide valuable insight into which one would be a best fit for your project.
