RFID

Identify and track objects the contactless way. Innovation for your business success.

RFID Solutions by NEC

RFID – a key technology

Today, companies use this groundbreaking, future-oriented technology to control their business processes to a greater degree while improving on effi ciency and productivity. RFID is emerging as the standard in processes and operations.

Radio Frequency Identifi cation (RFID) enables contactless, conclusive identifi cation of objects, allowing for automatic, real-time tracking of any given item in the logistics chain.

Pioneer in contactless data transmission

The hub of the new technology is a so-called transponder: a tiny computer chip containing an integrated antenna. Generally, this chip is integrated in a carrier object like a product label or plastic card. A numeric code stored in the chip encrypts the information and transmits it to its immediate surroundings via the antenna. At the same time, the coded information is also recorded in a central database. Use of the correct reader enables the individual code of any object to be received and compared to that stored in the central database. The result: every individual object is uniquely identifi able.

One example for a numbering scheme on the transponder is the Electronic Product Code, which identifi es a product’s manufacturer, version, serial number and product packaging unit.

Various types of transponders are used depending on the fi eld of application. And depending on the application, low, high, or ultra-high frequency ranges are used for communication between the transponder and reader.

How NEC RFID Solutions can help you

Application scenario “Asset Management”

Application scenario

This solution ensures that administrators always know the location of electronic devices such as telephones, PCs, laptops, measurement and testing instruments. Devices provided to employees are first outfitted with an RFID transponder. The individual code of every device is stored in a central database, thereby enabling responsible personnel to identify each asset using an RFID reader.

This optimizes asset availability and centralizes administration. The current status of a device can always be monitored; contactless tracking thus increases administration efficiency.

Application scenario “EPCglobal Network”

EPCglobal Network

The Electronic Product Code (EPC) was developed to make worldwide supply chain processes between manufacturers, retailers and outlets even more seamless, efficient and faster. Here, too, NEC has the convincing solution for you. We provide the complete EPCglobal Network environment, with total harmonization of elementary technologies, especially with regard to RFID. In addition to the EPC code, RFID tags and RFID middleware, the EPCglobal Network – which uses ONS standards – is among the central components.

We are your partner for scalable, ongoing implementation, and we always guarantee the highest security and expandability – to protect your investment and future business growth.

Application scenario “Temperature Traceability”

Temperature Traceability

NEC presents the RFID starter kit with integrated temperature recording. A temperature sensor is integrated in the transponder which precisely registers any temperature changes during the handling and transport of goods that could damage their product quality – an imperative for perishable foods. At the time of delivery, your customer can verify the temperature history of the goods by checking the tag.

Temperature-related logistics processes are seamlessly documented, thus fundamentally optimizing your supply chain’s temperature management.
