ISO RFID Standards: A Complete List

Standards have and will continue to have tremendous affects on the way companies due business throughout the world. We have assembled an RFID standards quick reference card. As many RFID standards are still being developed and even more being updated, we encourage you to check the governing authority websites for the latest information.

ISO/IEC 24730

The fundamental goal of the ISO/IEC 24730 standard is to allow for compatibility and to encourage interoperability of products for the growing RTLS market. The ISO/IEC divided the standard into two parts:

Part 1: defines an API needed for utilizing an RTLS. It enables software applications to utilize an RTLS infrastructure to locate assets with RTLS transmitters attached to them. It defines a boundary across which application software uses facilities of programming languages to collect information contained in RTLS tag blinks received by the RTLS infrastructure.

Part 2 : the 2.4 GHz air interface protocol, establishes a technical standard for real-time locating systems that operate at an internationally available 2.4 GHz frequency band and are intended to provide approximate location with frequent updates (for example, several times a minute). This part of the standard defines a networked location system that provides x-y coordinates and data telemetry. The system utilizes RTLS transmitters that autonomously generate a direct-sequence spread-spectrum radio frequency beacon. The transmitters may be field programmable and support an optional exciter mode that allows modification of the rate of location update and location of the RTLS device.
