Holland 1916, manufacturer of RFID tag solutions intended for hazardous environments, has created a simple way to RFID enable machines with the creation of its new RFID Washer.
The RFID Washer is ideal for tagging just about anything that is put together with regular bolts, such as machines, assembly stations, and equipment. A naturally unobtrusive RFID tag solution, it simply replaces a standard washer with an RFID washer of similar shape and size.
The solution provides a seamless way of RFID-enabling existing machines to communicate with users, maintenance workers, or other machinery to automate applications such as inspection and audits, assembly verification, asset tracking, maintenance operations, security seals, and equipment verification.
These RFID washers are suitable for a number of applications including asset tracking of automotive, industrial, construction, and oil and gas equipment. The stainless steel design of the RFID Washer allows it to survive the harsh oil and gas environment.
