Improved logistics with 2.45 GHz RFID
Long range and high speed
TagMaster AB in Sweden manufactures CONFIDENT, a long range, high speed, directive, EMI tolerant and generally robust 2.45 GHz identification system. 2.45 GHz systems make it easy to synchronise the supply-, manufacturing- and distribution chain. This gives less capital tie up in materials, improved planning flexibility, less work force need and fewer faults. Usually, the overall security is also improved and the investment often pays off in less than a year.
Thanks to the improved communications infrastructure in a modern society, very little data need to be stored in the tags. This lowers the overall system cost significantly and gives better control to the managing system. With dropping network costs, companies tend to use small chip tags and readers with modern protocols like TCP/IP for on line service via the Internet.
Distribution centres. 2.45 GHz RFID is often used in distribution
centres, where the dispatch manager gets information each time a truck
enters. He can then organise a new load and assign a gate while the truck
is cleaned after the previous run. Once the dispatch manager has ‘clicked’
the right new load, load gate and truck together, a display guides the
truck driver to the right loading gate. The ID system can also command
barriers at the exit to prevent theft of trucks.
Airport freight terminal. Automatic identification of freight truck drivers provides a quick, yet secure, access between land-side and air-side. The driver is identified inside the truck through the front window, making it impossible for a violator to get access to the air-side by stealing a truck and driving through.
Harbours. Automatic identification is needed when containers and other loads will be out of reach for a long time e.g. when transported on ships. The trucks are automatically identified on arrival to the harbour, for automatic guidance and access through the entrance barrier and customs weighing bridges.
Access control in industrial areas. Industrial areas are visited by many vehicles each day. With CONFIDENT, all vehicles belonging to the employees, shipping/distribution- and service companies can access without need to painstakingly open a side window and stretch out swipe a card.
