Craemer Unveils RFID-tagged Container for Fishing IndustryThe Craemer Group, a European manufacturer of plastic pallets, wheelie bins and containers, has introduced a smart fish box with an integrated RFID transponder designed for the fishing industry. The RFID-enabled fish box, Craemer reports, is built to enable companies operating within the supply chain to identify, track and trace information about fish, fishing grounds, and the quality and size of a catch. The fish box can transparently track fish throughout the entire process, from when the fish is caught to the point of sale. The information collected via RFID flows directly into fish auction information systems that are designed to let potential buyers purchase the fish before a trawler arrives in the harbor, the company says, thereby saving time and ensuring that the fish is taken to its destination faster. The solution leverages an EPC Class 1 Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C compliant transponder with an NXP Semiconductors RFID chip. It can operate in temperatures ranging from -20 degrees to +70 degrees Celsius (-4 degrees to +158 degrees Fahrenheit) and has a read range is up to 3 meters (9.8 feet), depending on the type of reader used. According to Craemer, fish boxes without RFID tags can be retrofitted at any time. In addition to the RFID technology, the fish boxes feature a new system that manages water drainage to the front side, as well as an optimized base geometry for quick and easy drainage. In addition, the fish box offers improved stackability and user-friendly handgrips. According to Craemer, the new boxes are fully compatible with all standard fish boxes currently available on the market.
