Ensuring Effective Cell Phone Signal Blocking without Interfering with RFID Personnel Tracking Systems
Cell phone signal blockers are widely used in various settings to prevent unauthorized cell phone usage. However, in certain environments such as correctional facilities, the installation of these blockers can pose challenges when it comes to the compatibility with RFID personnel tracking systems. This article explores the hardware components of RFID systems and provides insights on how to effectively install cell phone signal blockers without interfering with the functionality of RFID personnel tracking systems.
Understanding the Hardware Components:
RFID personnel tracking systems consist of two main hardware components: positioning base stations and positioning tags. The positioning base stations emit wireless signals, typically WiFi signals, to identify and locate the positioning tags. On the other hand, cell phone signal blockers emit signals that are primarily white noise at the same frequency as cell phone signals. Our company’s wireless signal blockers are designed with modularity in mind, with each set of blockers composed of different frequency modules.
To effectively block cell phone signals on-site without disrupting the normal operation of RFID personnel tracking systems, it is recommended to disable the WiFi frequency module in the cell phone signal blocker. By doing so, the signal blocker will no longer emit WiFi signals, thus eliminating any potential interference with the RFID personnel tracking system. It is important to note that during the installation of cell phone signal blockers, it is advisable to keep a safe distance from the RFID personnel tracking system devices to minimize any potential disruption.
The installation of cell phone signal blockers in environments such as correctional facilities requires careful consideration to ensure compatibility with existing RFID personnel tracking systems. By disabling the WiFi frequency module in the signal blocker, it is possible to effectively block cell phone signals without interfering with the functionality of the RFID system. This approach allows for the maintenance of a secure and controlled environment while still enabling the accurate tracking and monitoring of personnel within the facility.
