Complex Environments Require Robust Design: How the Most Critical Applications Benefit From Specialized RFID
Many RFID tags claim to be suitable for harsh environments, but as different as tags are, so are the definitions of “harsh” for various use cases. During this session, attendees received valuable insights into the most relevant standards and visualized testing models used to enable smarter RFID tag choices. Learn how different companies across multiple industries have implemented RFID to achieve greater financial and operational results, improved manufacturing processes, a safer working environment and faster data collection, as well as to simplify the tracking of critical assets.
