Our RFID Solutions

How does an RFID system work?
  • An RFID system consists of a tag, which is made up of a microchip with an antenna, and an interrogator or reader with an antenna. The reader sends out electromagnetic waves.
  • The tag antenna is tuned to receive these waves. A passive RFID tag draws power from a field created by the reader and uses it to power the microchip’s circuits. The chip then modulates the waves that the tag sends back to the reader, and the reader converts the new waves into digital data
What is the read range for a typical RFID tag?
  • The read range of passive tags (tags without batteries) depends on many factors: the frequency of operation, the power of the reader, interference from metal objects or other RF devices.
  • In general, low-frequency tags are read from a foot or less. High frequency tags are read from about three feet and UHF tags are read from 10 to 20 feet. Where longer ranges are needed, active tags use batteries to boost read ranges to 300 feet or more.
  • Integrated Solution.
  • Portal with SSO.
  • Personalization.
  • Role based ’Access’.
  • Right information to the Right Person.
  • @ the Right Time.

When is RFID better than barcodes?


   RFID Barcode
Read Rate High throughput. Multiple (>100) tags can be read simultaneously. Very low throughput. Tags can only be read manually, one at a time.
Line of Sight Not required. Items can be oriented in any direction, as long as it is in the read range, and direct line of sight is never required. Definitely required. Scanner must physically see each item directly to scan, and items must be oriented in a very specific manner.
Human Capital Virtually none. Once up and running, the system is completely automated. Large requirements. Laborers must scan each tag.
Read/Write Capability More than just reading. Ability to read, write, modify, and update. Read only. Ability to read items and nothing else.
Durability High. Much better protected, and can even be internally attached, so it can be read in very harsh environments. Low. Easily damaged or removed; cannot be read if dirty or greasy.
Security High. Difficult to replicate. Data can be encrypted, password protected, or include a “kill” feature to remove data permanently, so information stored is much more secure. Low. Much easier to reproduce or counterfeit.
Event Triggering Capable. Can be used to trigger certain events (like door openings, alarms, etc.). Not capable. Cannot be used to trigger event

tekTRACK can facilitate workflow for patient admissions, and discharge leading to better bed utilization. Because TrackStar handles the patient tracking it can automate discharge by having procedures that validate patient departure and automatically alert others such as housekeeping that a room can be cleaned and made ready for the next patient.

MANUFACTURING / OPERATIONS
How tekMAZ archive your business objective

tekTRACK monitors your WIP throughout your premises using fixed reader portals, fork lift readers and hand held readers to deliver real time WIP tracking. The TrackStar system Work in Process module monitors WIP by serialized unit automatically without any attendant labor. Additionally, workers can be tagged so that their presence in a work cell can be allocated to the WIP, thereby improving cost accounting techniques for allocating production labor.

Even manufacturers that have semi automated the process using bar code scanners find that workers often forget to scan some parts or circumvent the system for other reasons. tekMAZ’ tekTRACK platform is well suited to solving these problems and proves manufacturers with data to populate a information dashboard and ports to better manage assembly automation, track plant floor assets, and manage inventory by integrating applications inside and outside the company, as well as externally with customers and suppliers. The API allows the information to be transferred to the existing monitoring systems without any human interferences.

Automates data tracking for real time improvements and inventory management loading and delivery.

Fixed readers on fork lifts and dock doors eliminate manual data and operator error, increasing loading efficiency by 50% and pick-ticket accuracy by 100%

Smart bin ( RFID tagged containers) loading determines optimum inventory location, directs material handling personnel on where to place finished goods; fast moving inventory may be loaded closer to the dock to cut fork lift time.

Automatically generates pick list and bill of lading.
RFID interrogator verifies order accuracy and updates inventory as product leaves the factory.

Dramatically speeds up physical inventory.

Eliminates orphaned parts and mis-shipments which require expensive additional handling and other costs to correct.

LOGISTICS/ SUPPLY CHAIN

tekTRACK can ensure that product is automatically registered as it passes through RFID equipped read zones on its way from the back room, to the sales floor, the cash register and home with the shopper. By authenticating that process, it is now possible to use that knowledge to reject returns that represent fraudulent claims by professional organizations to defraud retailers.
