How Does RFID Work?
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a valuable business and technology tool that offers strategic advantages for businesses because it tracks assets and inventory in the supply chain more efficiently than existing tracking systems, like bar coding. Providing real-time visibility, RFID automatically captures critical data, thus allowing users to monitor equipment, supplies, and personnel throughout their facilities. From compliance support to process improvement, the data collected from RFID readers can be used to help users gain a better understanding of their workflow and implement changes that can improve processes and save time and money.
There are three primary components to any complete RFID tracking solution: hardware, software, and RFID tags. Core2Scan® incorporates all these components into one solution. Hardware includes fixed and handheld RFID readers that collect data and send it to VAI’s proprietary software. That software organizes the data and displays it in an exceedingly user-friendly platform. The RFID tags contain the data related to each and every asset they are affixed to. Readers “see” an RFID-tagged asset as it passes through its read range. That data is then sent to the software where it can be used in numerous ways. The RFID tags are continually read throughout your facility as they move from one area to another. In doing so, an audit trail is automatically created in the system, which can then be used for documentation purposes.
Core2Scan® uses state of the art RFID equipment designed specifically for aseptic manufacturing facilities.
