Decentralization often starts off small-scale

It is becoming more and more clear that making processes more flexible must be accompanied by decentralization, because otherwise the complexity of a central controlling system would be unmanageable. Therefore, a different light is shed upon an element of Industry 4.0 – the demand for more decentralized structures: it is about smart processes and more decentralized freedom of choice – technology itself is only secondary. Looking at the connections and the relevant examples pays off.

The oil and gas industry has great potential for the use of slings – to use in construction and transport as well as for secure and traceable inspections and inventories

For more than 140 years, RUD Ketten has produced slings for use, predominantly, in industry and transport. With each step forward, the components, such as chains, hooks and lifting points, are increasing in size and becoming more powerful in terms of permissible load capacity. Therefore, the chain system expert is always asking which applications require the most powerful slings. The answer brings us to the offshore industry. “During the construction and operation of offshore platforms for energy generation, construction and plant components weighing several hundreds of tons have to be safely transported and lifted within an offshore environment – a perfect scenario for our slings”, Michael Smetz and David Jaramillo, RUD Ketten, in interview with ‘RFID im Blick’.

All over the world, every day, hundreds of trains and trams are carrying millions of people and tonnes of goods

This is everyday business! But have you ever had a closer look at such trains? Have you ever spent a minute thinking of how the equipment is maintained, or how the train position and location system works? Something automatic, for sure. But could you imagine that UHF RFID is more and more important improving this everyday business?

From the automotive industry to chemical and pharmaceutical applications – special features are required of inotag Smart Labels in harsh environments or outdoors

In harsh environments special features are required of smart labels, such as heat, scratch and chemical resistance. They should also be easy to handle and affordable. The label manufacturer inotag is constantly pushing the development of labels for use in container logistics and in the automotive, chemical and pharmaceutical industries – they can also be used for applications where an alternative to adhesive labels is needed.

“RFID is the Most Effective Method of Source Tagging”

Embedded miniature tags on circuit boards are well-established in electronics production. However, other industries, such as the automotive industry, could profit from “smart” objects too.

To already equip products with RFID tags in the production phase and thus make them traceable until the “end of life” – this is the vision Murata Electronics has been consistently pursuing for the past five years with their “Magicstrap”. As the driving force of the idea to establish the RFID miniature models of the Japanese technology group in the European electronics industry, Alexander M. Schmoldt says: “Today, source tagging has proven to be an effective and worthwhile application that is in productive use at leading manufacturers such as Schneider Electric. However, the concept can equally well be transferred to other industries such as automotive added value chains.

noFilis established AIDC-standard solutions and has launched a new repository for unresolved challenges

noFilis is relying on more than ten years of experience gained through numerous projects with more than 250 customers in 30 countries around the world. This expertise is now available for standard applications, easily solving complex challenges in industrial production and logistics. This is a big step forward for AIDC applications – as it was a common assumption that UHF RFID applications in particular, require time-consuming test and pilot phases. At the same time a repository for cross-enterprise electronic data exchange was developed closing existing gaps in value chains.

A new concept designed by Bornemann based on professional tracking devices brings long-term tracking to a completely new level

In late September 2015, at the RFID tomorrow conference, Bornemann for the first time presented its completely new concept for a worldwide container tracking with devices that, despite their small construction size and the fact that they are filled to the brim with GSM, RFID, GPS, and sensor technology, can run with a single battery for up to 15 years. At the same time, the robustness of the devices allows them to be installed, for example, onto a container for its entire life cycle, as Steen Burnaes, CPO at Bornemann reports regarding the tracking technology specialists newest innovations. How the development steps were made over the past years, what potentials for which applications can the new device exploit, and what developments are to follow will be explained by the leading product developer in an interview with “RFID im Blick”.

Turck and its technology partners bring a sensor tag to the market, which redefines processes with a special focus on the automotive industry

Water limits the functionality of UHF RFID technology, because it limits high-frequency electromagnetic fields and changes the resonance frequency. Water or other moisture reduces the read rate of UHF transponders to a minimum and makes the UHF technology unusable in practice in humid environments. Turck and its technology partners took advantage of this and developed a unique RFID label that makes use of the restricting effect of water in moisture detection. This innovation will be of great value for the automotive industry, in particular, as Business Development Manager Walter Hein reports to “RFID im Blick”.

The next generation of the ISO card: acoustic cards as an alternative to NFC increase the security level of mobile payment applications

The next generation of payment cards provides a range of new functionalities by integrating electronic components into the ISO Format. There are fingerprint cards without a battery, with flexible PCB card designs, e-paper displays with Dot-matrix, and batteries that recharge via NFC. Technically, these are all viable options, as Yiwen Jin, B-Id explains. With partners, the company is working simultaneously on several innovative developments and projects. Acoustic cards, the next evolution of payment cards, are already in the starting blocks. The card interacts with the smartphone using an integrated speaker and microphone and offers - as an alternative to NFC - the high-security communication feature of a smart card for mobile payment applications.
