RFID tag application in manhole cover Management

manhole-cover-tag

The public underground utilities of communications, gas, electricity and others are increasing with the development of infrastructure in our cities, as well as the number of manhole covers of different underground utilities facilities is increasing. At recent, there are some phenomenons that manhole covers are stoled, broken and not managed in time, because of the power of managing manhole covers is not enough. How to improve the manhole covers management is a hard and hot issue that facilities management departments worry about in our country. Government and facilities management departments star to pay high attention to this issue. After losing manhole covers, it is hard to sure the property of manhole covers. Thus, we can’t find property unit and service it in time. It is posserble to monitor the management of manhole covers and maintain road by using RFID techmology with the fast development of RFID technology in our country.

We can install a RFID tag to record impformation at each manhole cover and well location by RFID technology. The property unit can be identified immediately by scanning the tag, and supplement manhole covers in the shortest time when the manhole covers lost.

RFID manhole cover management system is based on RFID technology platform. It consists of low frequency RFID tags, reader, RFID handheld machine and background management software.

RFID tags can be designed to different form, in addition to the requirement of usage. It can be applied on oil, dust, rain and other bad enveroument. Thus, adopting RFID tags as asset identifier can solve the problem of damaging tags in outside to the devices offen used in outside.Radio frequency technology using radio carrier wave communication technology to achieve data exchange and achieve a invisible way of non-touch to read label information. And RFID tags can store data. We can repeatedly write data into it for 100,000 times.

The key data of the main imformation of manhole cover can be recorded in tags by using RFID tags. Each RFID tag has only one ID number all over the world, this ID number is programmed by ROM mold when generating integrated circuit. It can’t be changed. Thus, RFID tags can’t be copied or replaced. We can read the data of RFID tags that installed in devices by handheld devices without opening the cover of devices. Meanwhile, we can quickly hold the key information of manhole covers and the status of the lost manhole covers.

Using RFID tag for Warehouse Management

RFID tag in the warehouse application, which shows the RFID tag has more advantage and a lot of convenience , it makes our life became technology.

In order to improve productivity and control, warehouses are seriously considering the use of radio frequency identification (FRID) tags for day-to-day operations. This wireless technology increases efficiency of warehouse management because, Unlike bar codes, the device doesn’t have to be pointed at the tag at all and can read tags from several feet away. This is just one of the many reasons why warehouses are making the switch to RFID technology. Here are a few of the other ways your warehouse can improve its pallet tracking by incorporating RFID technology in your warehouse tracking system.

Tags do not have to be seen in order to read data. This means that tracking products or people can happen from anywhere in a specified range which maximizes speed and efficiency. RFID tags can store up to 100 times the data of bar codes, allowing you to keep track of all the data you need for your inventory such as lot and serial number, size, manufacturer, vendor, expiration date, user, location on production line and anything else you might want to know.

The main purpose of using RFID technology is to increase warehouse efficiency by reducing labor and logistic costs that are otherwise provides ever-increasing pressure on profit margins in today’s competitive environment. It is cost-efficient because the warehouses can now streamline several operational areas inside their premises. For example, picture a typical warehouse where staff receives boxes of stock accompanied by paperwork detailing items in the delivery. Staff members then manually check each box’s contents against the manifest. This wireless technology in warehouses can help establish a simple paperless, on-line communication between operations and the staff’s computer.

The position of each rfid tag is flexible since the RFID tag doesn’t need to be physically seen by the reader. For example, you can place RFID sticker tags in boxes or within a pallet. RFID technology is functional inside and outside the warehouse. The RFID technology has the capacity to withstand harsh environments and temperatures, even the custom rfid tags!

Automatic Inventory Modification which one of the biggest advantages of using RFID technology is in receiving. Because an RFID device doesn’t have to be pointed at the RFID tag, the device can be set up automatically to read and log any RFID tag.

III:Traceability– RFID nail tag record all information about the products. For example, Furniture manufacturer can know the age of the tree in the forest, the fruiting rate of the fruit trees, and record all details of trees and wooden. The RFID nail tags can workable outside. It’s small size, no visible when installing in the wood, pallet or trees. DO RFID tag manufacturer produced various kinds of RFID nail tags , some of Big size RFID nail tag with UHF chip, you can get the data at the long distance of 15-30cm.

Passive RFID Systems

In passive RFID systems the reader and reader antenna send a radio signal to the tag. The RFID tag then uses the transmitted signal to power on, and reflect energy back to the reader.

Passive RFID systems can operate in the low frequency (LF), high frequency (HF) or ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio bands. As passive system ranges are limited by the power of the tag’s backscatter (the radio signal reflected from the tag back to the reader), they are typically less than 10 m. Because passive tags do not require a power source or transmitter, and only require a tag chip and antenna, they are cheaper, smaller, and easier to manufacture than active tags.

Passive tags can be packaged in many different ways, depending on the specific RFID application requirements. For instance, they may be mounted on a substrate, or sandwiched between an adhesive layer and a paper label to create smart RFID labels. Passive tags may also be embedded in a variety of devices or packages to make the tag resistant to extreme temperatures or harsh chemicals.

Current and Potential Uses of RFID

Asset Tracking
It’s no surprise that asset tracking is one of the most common uses of RFID. Companies can put RFID tags on assets that are lost or stolen often, that are underutilized or that are just hard to locate at the time they are needed. Just about every type of RFID system is used for asset management. NYK Logistics, a third-party logistics provider based in Secaucus, N.J., needed to track containers at its Long Beach, Calif., distribution center. It chose a real-time locating system that uses active RFID beacons to locate container to within 10 feet.

Manufacturing
RFID has been used in manufacturing plants for more than a decade. It’s used to track parts and work in process and to reduce defects, increase throughput and manage the production of different versions of the same product.

Supply Chain Management
RFID technology has been used in closed loop supply chains or to automate parts of the supply chain within a company’s control for years.

As standards emerge, companies are increasingly turning to RFID to track shipments among supply chain partners.

Retailing
Retailers such as Best Buy, Metro, Target, Tesco and Wal-Mart are in the forefront of RFID adoption. These retailers are currently focused on improving supply chain efficiency and making sure product is on the shelf when customers want to buy it.

Payment Systems
RFID is all the rage in the supply chain world, but the technology is also catching on as a convenient payment mechanism. One of the most popular uses of RFID today is to pay for road tolls without stopping. These active systems have caught on in many countries, and quick service restaurants are experimenting with using the same active RFID tags to pay for meals at drive-through windows.

Security and Access Control
RFID has long been used as an electronic key to control who has access to office buildings or areas within office buildings. The first access control systems used low-frequency RFID tags. Recently, vendors have introduced 13.56 MHz systems that offer longer read range. The advantage of RFID is it is convenient (an employee can hold up a badge to unlock a door, rather than looking for a key or swiping a magnetic stripe card) and because there is no contact between the card and reader, there is less wear and tear, and therefore less maintenance.
