RFID Capabilities

When implementing RFID technology customers need to ask themselves whether they have the internal resources to execute an RFID project.

Is it really cost effective to divert internal staff from mission critical business functions?

There are many considerations to completing an RFID project successfully.

  • How will signal obstacles and RFI considerations be mitigated?

  • How will tags and readers be configured, staged, shipped to various locations ready to go when they are needed?

  • How will the customer’s users learn the new processes and operational procedures?

  • How will the system documentation and the SOP be developed?

  • Who is going to manage the thousands of details involved in a large scale roll out and deal with the issues that arise?

A1X Automation has the experience and expertise to design, configure and integrate your RFID project:

Site Survey:

The first step in any RFID project is a survey of the site to identify RFI (radio frequency interference) and signal propagation issues. The A1X Site Survey will generate a 2D RF map of your facility showing RFI sources, dead spots and obstacles that will prevent 100% RFID coverage. A report is then generated and delivered to you detailing how to overcome each consideration. The cost of survey and report is usually under $5K.
