NFC Network RFID Reader

Description  

This network reader a cost effective alternative to traditional access control solutions. The fast Ethernet interface (10BASE-T / 100BASE-TX) allows an easy integration into IP-based network infrastructures with CAT-5 cables.   It combines the functions of an intelligent controller with Ethernet interface and a RFID smart card reader in one compact device.  This reader supports passive transponder according to ISO / IEC 14443 type A and type B, ISO / IEC 15693 and communicates with NFC devices (ISO / IEC 18092).

RFID Support

Case: Home Pro PLC

Home Pro PLC which is one of the largest household items retailers would like to improve its logistics management and increase the visibility of its trailer.  Currently the company does not have any effective technology to automatically manage its trailer. 

SOLUTION

Passive RFID technology is selected to be used to meet the objectives. Each truck and its trailer are tagged with outdoor RFID tags.  The readers are installed at the key strategic station including entrance, loading bay, weight station and exit.  The tags are read automatically with the readers located at each station.  After reading by the reader, the truck information is forward to data base application.  Staff at the warehouse will be able to prepare loading operation in advance when the truck enters the factory.  With the readers at the each loading bay, warehouse staff is able to increase the utilization of loading bay.  Any loading bay which is not used will be automatically appeared on the control room.  Staff can assign the available trailer to do loading on that bay, unlike before which needs to have someone to walk to the DC to see which loading is unoccupied.  Besides eliminating some manual operation, the truck information is automatically recorded into the system.  The staff can use this information to set the KPI of each operation.  In addition, the company is able to know the number of the trailers which is used and which is not in used.  This information will be used for further business planning on the trailer utilization.

RESULTS

  • Give better visibility on trailer
  • Eliminate human operation such as data entry or etc.  
  • Truck and trailer status is digitalized in measurable format, while makes it possible to monitor and improve operation.
  • Increase the utilization of loading bay
