Protrac iD RFID Tags
The latest RFID technology built into tags with tamper, motion and vibration sensors and duress alarm buttons creates a multitude of uses for intelligent monitoring and control. For example, attaching a tag to a vehicle as soon as it rolls off the assembly line and tracking it from the distribution point to the dealer showroom, means that continuous location, stock level, and financial data, can be recorded up to the time it is sold.
RFID Tags can be attached to high value objects such as museum artworks, hospital medical equipment, IT equipment and even people. For example, tags carried by staff can be monitored by an RFID system linked to a central security system to sound an alarm for monitored events such as tamper, vibration, patient wandering and safety, staff duress, etc. and can even ‘deny exit’ if activated. This same RFID technology can facilitate the location of portable and shared equipment for tracking, work flow and inventory management on sites such as hospitals and universities.
A product tracking system using RFID technology works by means of tags attached to the high value equipment deployed throughout a network, for example a mobile phone network. This active RFID based tracking system allows for the centralised real time actual inventory of equipment at each location. RFID wristband technology worn by employees or carried as access cards allow authorised access to each site by means of a smart door access system to provide automatic identification for every maintenance visit. Together with product tracking tags, this allows the system to record exactly what equipment is repaired, removed, relocated, etc., when and by whom.
RFID Tags attached to semi-trailers are monitored by a reader connected to the prime mover’s GPS/GSM system to provide the identity of the trailer, or trailers, being towed. Alternatively, the RFID reader can simultaneously identify hundreds of individually tagged high value objects transported by a single semi trailer. Active RFID tags fitted with temperature sensors provide the temperature of refrigerated loads in real time.
Readers attached to weighbridges report the identity of a truck being weighed for applications such as mining, recycling, waste management and infrastructure development
