Transponder technology keeps you updated at all times by automatically identifying your kegs. RFID represents the biggest driving force for innovation and growth. For you as a brewer, it involves not just service and customer loyalty but also a reduction of technical complaints. Furthermore, you have all market data for assured scheduling.
By having planned production management, your workflows go smoother and are automated. You have the option of batch tracking in accordance with EU Regulation 178/2002 at the end of the logistics
RFID is an English acronym and stands for radio frequency identification. Automatic identification of objects and living beings is thus possible by means of electromagnetic waves.
For companies, this means a common standard for the identification of articles and inventory, thus enabling the tracking of processes and the continuous determination of responsibilities to ensure uniform communication along the value chain. For example, changes in stock or inventory can be recorded to the second without manual intervention.
An effective RFID system consists of transponders (tags), readers (antennas) and software to recognise the transmitted data. This software has an interface to programmes already in use in the company.
Firstly, a distinction is made between active and passive transponders according to their energy supply.
Another distinguishing feature is the frequency strength of the RFID tags
Nowadays, there are no limits to the design of transponders. Depending on the application and environment, transponders made of metal, plastic or glass are used.
The way to the right system, i.e. the right transponder (e.g. HF, UHF or LF) for the respective conditions and requirements of the filling plant, can be clearly worked out in advance. As soon as it is known how far RFID must reach for which materials, which susceptibilities to interference have to be taken into account and at which points in the operation recording has to take place, implementation can commence in conjunction with the (software) applications already in use in the warehouse, logistics and filling operations.
