Tracking of Small Load Carriers (VDA-KLT)
How RFID for small load carriers (VDA-KLT) was realized with CISC RAIN Xplorer
Many German automotive corporations have already started experimenting with the RFID load carriers by themselves (“VDA-Retrofit”) as they want to harvest the benefits of RFID versus Barcode now. When load carriers are combined with RFID, however, a number of challenges arise in terms of RFID performance and conformance.
When a leading German car manufacturer started to experiment with RFID on load carriers, they soon realized that they are in need of expert equipment for RFID testing. To stop the guesswork, they looked for CISC’s RFID testing solutions and 20+ years of CISC’ RFID expertise to be able to handle all performance and conformance requirements. CISC’s pass/fail mask for quick performance measurements of the RFID label on the load carrier, was especially developed for the automotive sector and marked a turning point for their RFID load carrier project.
„You cannot simply put a RFID label on a load carrier (KLT/GLT). It will not work properly”, says a lead engineer of a major German car manufacturer, who’s name may not be disclosed yet. “The CISC Xplorer enabled us to understand, control and act on every necessary RFID parameter in the logistics ecosystem. Without CISC`s holistic RFID testing solution, you are lost in trial and error.”
CISC`s pass/fail performance mask marked a turning point in the project
Being able to test the performance of the RFID load carrier is a prerequisite to understand, control and improve the RFID load carrier. However, equally important, is the speed and ease to conduct those tests and to utilize it in the next step. The CISC`s pass/fail performance mask simplifies and speeds up all your testing and verification processes of your RFID load carriers. RFID load carrier development, initial setup and sample testing with accuracy, speed and ease of use.
The RFID readiness of your logistics ecosystem is a prerequisite too
The logistics ecosystem must be RFID optimized, too. A holistic RFID testing solution is necessary to be able to test any parameter for the complete logistics ecosystem. RFID readers, gates and environment have to be analyzed and optimized to assure smooth running of the RFID load carriers.
