RFID solutions for industrial automation
The RFID solutions for industrial automation are designed depending on the assembly chain features. The chip will be chosen according to the needed memory. As well as the antenna determines the read range. Generally, the combination of both decides the speed of reading. So, it means that the RFID solution for an automation system is designed in order to fit these three factors —memory, distance, and speed. Besides, environmental conditions also affect RFID performance. For example, the presence of dust, grease or humidity. Finally, the item’s characteristics affect the RFID tag that we need to choose. As we have seen in the RFID solution for metals or in the RFID solution for food.
When we need an RFID solution for industrial automation?
The industrial automation aims to optimize the workflow in order to be faster and to avoid human errors. One of the factors to achieve this goal is tracking the different components of the final products. These components have to be placed in a precise moment in the assembly chain. This is very important when the products are not identical because of the customization decided for the customer.
Tracking the components is also very useful to control batches and providers in order to have the right traceability of all the product’s parts. Therefore, we will have all the products which contain a component from a singular batch.
In summarize, there are a lot of reasons to improve the workflow with RFID solutions for industrial automation. There are as many as assembly chains designed or more.
