Driver ID proximity cards
RFID proximity cards are issued to drivers each with a preprogrammed unique
code. The cards can be printed with employee Photo and other details so that
they serve as identity card as well. The drivers scan cards to logon and logoff
using the card either in the vehicle or the yard and the system tracks and
reports on their working hours
Staff buses can have multiple staff scan their cards as they get in or leave
the bus providing a simple way to track attendance of field staff at remote
Bins can be tagged with long range RFID tags that can be read with a vehicle or
lift arm mounted reader. Each time a bin is picked/dropped the Bin ID is
registered in the system along with GPS based location and date time.
Proof of visit
Equipment Service Inspections
Equipment service technicians that perform preventative maintenance on
equipment located at customer site can provide proof of visit and service by
tagging each equipment with an RFID proximity tag that is scanned when the
service is performed. The scan data can be also correlated with the customer
site and service contract. Typical examples include plant maintenance, fire
extinguisher and alarm checking etc.
Guards use the hand-held data collector to record all checkpoints visited. By
placing the rugged hand held reader close to the Tag the time, date and
checkpoint location is recorded. Incident events encountered may also be
recorded using a set of pre determined Tag ids eliminating need for manual
entry of data. The RFID tag can be read through ice, dirt, grime, paint, and
any non-metallic material such as wood, concrete, glass, dry wall.
Timber Inventory Tracking
Nail tags can be embedded into logs to enable tracking of timber inventory from
forest to mill. The readers are vehicle mounted or hand held readers. Each read
also records Tag id, with date time and location.
RFID systems are non contact and non-line-of-sight in nature. Tags can be read
through snow, paint, dust, wood, concrete and other harsh environments where
bar codes and touch memory technology (ibutton) would fail.
RFID systems can be used in a number of applications and Xlerate can help you
select the right solution combination for your application. Choosing the right
solution hardware is depended on read range, speed of read, ambient conditions
and other factors
