What makes RFID systems industrial strength?
The same RFID products developed for retail stores and supply chain operations are heavily marketed to manufacturers for production operations. These products may have different housings or IP ratings than their general-purpose cousins and may work fine in warehouses, but that does not necessarily qualify them as industrial grade.
When evaluating RFID equipment, it is important to make the distinction between what is possible for use in the environment and what is optimal. This white paper from Balluff, helps system planners make that distinction, by providing an overview of the features and capabilities that differentiate true industrial RFID equipment.
