Integrating RFID With PLCs and Manufacturing Systems
An RFID system cannot simply be bolted onto an existing manufacturing or packaging line. It must be integrated with that line. Tags must be applied inline, and there must be a system for checking that each tag is functioning, and for rejecting items with malfunctioning tags. This requires integrating RFID systems with programmable logic controllers (PLCs). RFID readers also need to be integrated with back-end databases, so tag IDs can be linked to products. This session will explain successful integration strategies and how to implement them.
