What is a RF scanner:
The RF device which scans the radio frequencies and automatically tune to the desired frequency is known as RF scanner. It is similar to barcode scanner used in warehousing but uses radio frequency for its operation. RF scanners are not limited to one particular wireless technology. They are available to scan radio frequencies of various wireless devices such as RFID, NFC, GSM, LTE and so on.

RFID technology uses this concept in the form of RFID tags and RFID readers. The device RFID reader is same as RF scanner which scans the information embedded in the RFID tags. The RFID tags are of two main types passive and active. The figure-1 depicts typical RFID network used for people management. NFC is the another technology similar to RFID which also uses NFC tags and NFC readers for its operation.
