Mobile Object Identification with the RFID Wristband
Mobile devices for distributed data acquisition and communication are an integral part of infrastructures based on RFID. The RFID Wristband was developed for this– specifically for applications in which items are handled directly, e.g. order picking and delivery.
RFID Wristband Is a Mobile Reader for Processes Requiring “Free Hands”
The RFID Wristband is designed so that antenna integrated in the palm identifies items without any additional steps while keeping the wearers’ hands free. Data between the glove and the transponder on an item flows into the handling process automatically. This eliminates additional steps to write and read RFID data required by conventional handheld devices.
Standardized Wireless Interfaces
Standardized wireless interfaces such as ZIGBee or WLAN connect the RFID Wristband to higher-level systems, thus making it widely usable. These interfaces transmit any data read with the glove to a higher-level system where software customized for the specific application displays other functions such as documentation of handling processes.
The RFID Wristband’s Advantages at a Glance
- RFID transponders are read reliably while the wearers’ hands are kept free.
- Reducing steps in processes shortens cycle times.
- Standardized wireless interfaces are used for communication with central systems such as control centers.
- The glove meets the highest ergonomic standards for mobile devices.
