Top 10: Best Practices for Deploying RFID in Harsh Environments

Deploying a successful RFID solution in harsh environments requires specific knowledge and considerations that can only be gained through extensive field application experience. Omni-ID will share the learnings it has gleaned from deploying millions of tags for some of the largest energy and industrial manufacturing companies in the world. From the Middle East to the North Sea, Omni-ID’s expertise has been sought to implement solutions across diverse environments—each with its own set of challenges. Omni-ID’s Kathy Gannon will share the experiences she has gained on the front lines deploying harsh-environment solutions. From architecting a solution for asset tracking to MRO or meeting regulatory requirements, Kathy will review the ten best practices that every end user and solution provider should consider when implementing solutions under harsh conditions.

RFID for Tough Environments: Tag Selection and Use Cases

Many RFID technologies are currently available, with different pros and cons for potentially thousands of use cases. The energy, mining and construction industries, with their harsh, metallic and potentially explosive environments, set special demands on the RFID technology that is supposed to optimize inventory, prevent human error and optimize equipment handling. New active technologies like Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) open up new use cases, such as fast and accurate asset location and predictive condition monitoring. This session will explore the many characteristics of available technologies, as well as pitfalls to avoid and parameters to consider when selecting an RFID system for rough environments.
