UCODE DNA Advantages for Not Getting Hacked

UCODE DNA Advantages for Not Getting Hacked!

Not long ago, integrators implementing secure RFID based systems were forced to make a mutually exclusive decision between the advantages of a having a long read range and the data protection provided by cryptography.   As a result, whenever security became the primary purpose of the system, integrators were limited to using a short-range reader. NXP’s introduction of UCODE DNA addressed this dilemma, combining long-range contactless performance of a RAIN UHF Continue Reading...

Best Practices in Lean Manufacturing

“Successful entrepreneurial behavior is based on the willingness and ability to change. This attitude – paired with a great sense of community – makes up the core of our company philosophy,” emphasizes current Managing Director Eldor Walk. This is a mission statement to live by, but the true value of these words isn’t in how they were said, but how they were carried out. Too many companies believe being proactive is important and is something that we should start to implement…tomorrow. They focus too much on putting these ideals on a pedestal instead of getting their hands dirty by implementing them. Few companies take meaningful and sincere action, but FEIG isn’t most companies. They are Continue Reading...

RFID Parking Management

Why RFID for Parking Management Works Best

Every day, millions of vehicles circulate from one place to another around the world, eventually ending their travel in a parking lot somewhere. Viewed as a customer service by city planners to keep residents happy and visitors feeling welcomed, parking management has become a key aspect in our urban society where high vehicle density and parking space shortages require efficient management with Smart Cities deploying smartphone apps to guide you to an open space. Additionally, parking in certain locations becomes a frontline in securing a controlled perimeter with a fence and barrier.  The strength of a physical barrier to prevent unauthorized vehicles from entering an area is usually its’ weakest point, the method used to identify, Continue Reading...

Simple e Kanban Systems for Just-in-Time Inventory with RFID

Every manufacturing company can benefit from just-in-time inventory.  The greatest benefit may be freeing up working capital which allows managers to redirect financial resources toward corporate growth objectives rather than sitting inefficiently idle on a stock room shelf.   Large companies have enjoyed the assistance of automated Kanban systems to monitor and adjust inventory levels based on real time demand inputs.   Now small companies can achieve the same benefits without the IT complexities, software development demands, and the ongoing maintenance associated with application specific software residing on a private server. Companies that offer Kanban software solutions typically use a scanner to read a barcode printed on a Kanban ticket that triggers the pull of inventory into Continue Reading...

Top 9 Reasons Why Your RFID System is Not Working

Top 9 Reasons Why RFID is Not Working

Radio frequency identification is a technology that enables us to identify almost any object wirelessly using collected data transmitted through radio waves.  RFID applications are endless in any industry including healthcare, retail, manufacturing, transportation, and more. Various components work together to comprise the RFID system functionality and are necessary for the technology to work including RFID tags, antennas, readers, cables, and additional accessories such as multiplexers, and support antennas.  Together they form an effective RFID system. RFID systems are extremely reliable; some enterprises achieve a 99.9% system reliability on their RFID network, but what happens when an RFID system is performing poorly?  Or an identification tag is not read?  Failures can mean dollars lost for Continue Reading...
