Radio Frequency Identification
RFID is short for "Radio Frequency Identification." This system uses small tags to track important items and RECORD INFORMATION based on the PROGRAMING of the tag. When the tag comes in range of the scanner the RECORDED INFORMATION can be read and captured. RFID can be used to cover large areas very quickly and accurately. With one pass of a handheld reader you can ACCESS ALL of the information on the items that have been tagged.
PROGRAMING on RFID tags can be changed, UPDATED and locked, enabling several different APPLICATIONs for the technology. RFID tags are ideal for a variety of production and commercial applications including; Horticulture, Transportation / Logistics, Manufacturing, Inventory Management, Healthcare and much more.
With RFID you have a one-to-many relationship, instead of having to inventory every item one at a time, THE READER reads everything in its area that is tagged and detects everything quick and efficient. Unlike bar codes where each bar code has to be seen to be read, RFID does not need line of site to read each tag. This is the most efficient way to capture data fast and accurately. This translates to saving time and labor cost in tracking your inventory.
Also is great for SECURITY, by positioning tag-readers at points of high risk, such as exits, and causing them to trigger ALARMS if removed or replaced.
- The tags can be read at distance of 15 to 18 feet without line of sight.
- Tags can be read at once without operater intervention.
- RFID reader portals can read pallets moving in and out receiving and shipping.
- RFID tags can be overwritten, enabling information to be UPDATED and password protected.
- When moved from one part of a factory to another the tags are read to manage inventory levels and locations.
- Provides a higher DEGREE of SECURITY and product authentication.
- Each Label/Tag is unique and can act as a SECURITY feature if lost or stolen.
How is RFID used in Horticulture?
RFID helps by improving plant health and production, from seed to harvest and beyond. RFID works
well in greenhouses by collecting an accurate accounting of inventory. And, allowing greenhouse
staff to monitor key conditions for maintaining a healthy plant environment.
Track inventory and monitor environmental conditions for better plant growth and yield. Using our
RFID handhelds ACC-870-4000 or NOR-MER-5000 to capture data quickly, accurately with
less time and labor.
Monitor conditions such as temperature, humidity, and soil moisture. Use our RFID H221, H401
and DWB-P sensor tags along with our RFID handheld NOR-MER-5000 to track these conditions.
Has mobility and can be moved from areas easily and quickly with little labor. Our RFID sensors
can be moved quickly, easily, last 5 to 7 years, no batteries, no maintenance and no service
cost, less expensive than wired monitoring systems.
The data collected can provide information to help reduce operating costs. By combining the RFID
handheld NOR-MER-5000 and the RFID sensor
