RFID System Acts As Both Tracker And Information Manager

A new radio frequency identification (RFID) system not only tracks products, but also manages information throughout the process. The Balogh RFID system consists of TAGS, transceivers, controllers and cordsets. Balogh's passive TAGS do not require a line of sight to the transceivers, resulting in fewer items missed during first pass. This read accuracy reduces cycle times and increases productivity. If an error occurs during the read cycle, a fault code will be displayed and no data will be transferred. During transfers, a TAG-present bit indicates that the TAG is in front of the transceiver. This part-present indication eliminates the need to use a separate sensor to monitor the TAG's position. In the event the TAG is seen but a data transfer error occurs, an error bit is executed with a corresponding error code, with the bit alerting the user of a problem and even indicating the possible problem.
