ISO/IEC 18000

Summary

(Learn how and when to remove this template message)

ISO/IEC 18000 is an international standard that describes a series of diverse RFID technologies, each using a unique frequency range.

ISO/IEC 18000 consists of the following parts, under the general title Information technology — Radio frequency identification for item management:

  • Part 1: Reference architecture and definition of parameters to be standardized
  • Part 2: Parameters for air interface communications below 135 kHz
  • Part 3: Parameters for air interface communications at 13,56 MHz[a]
  • Part 4: Parameters for air interface communications at 2,45 GHz
  • Part 6: Parameters for air interface communications at 860 MHz to 960 MHz
  • Part 7: Parameters for active air interface communications at 433 MHz

The ISO/IEC 18000-6 is a large document. In 2012 it was split into 5 parts for publication:

  • Part 6: Parameters for air interface communications at 860 MHz to 960 MHz General
  • Part 61: Parameters for air interface communications at 860 MHz to 960 MHz Type A
  • Part 62: Parameters for air interface communications at 860 MHz to 960 MHz Type B
  • Part 63: Parameters for air interface communications at 860 MHz to 960 MHz Type C
  • Part 64: Parameters for air interface communications at 860 MHz to 960 MHz Type D

The various parts of ISO/IEC 18000 describe air interface communication at different frequencies in order to be able to utilize the different physical behaviors. The various parts of ISO/IEC 18000 are developed by ISO/IEC JTC1 SC31, "Automatic Data Capture Techniques".

Conformance test methods for the various parts of ISO/IEC 18000 are defined in the corresponding parts of ISO/IEC 18047. (See RFID testing)

Performance test methods are defined in ISO/IEC 18046. (See RFID testing)

Notes

  1. ^ The ISO uses the comma as the decimal mark to separate the integer part from the decimal part of a number.
