IDeal 134 RFID reader for Tambour-ID applications

IdentSystem’s Ideal134 RFID reader is not installed in nice papermills Tambour-ID system all over the world.

Our solution makes system design very flexible since we can design both the tags for different tambour sizes and types of metal surroundings as well as tailor-make antenna sizes and shapes depending on positionening needs. Antannas can also be fine-tuned for optimal readability, even in difficult environments.

The system can both replace the Baumer Ident OIS-P and is ideal for new installations. Ideal134 give the user full traceability back to master systems such as MES and similar and is invaluable for operators to avoid errors in handling and to trace production and quality data.

The IDeal134 reader connects to the present Mill Executive System and will keep track of Tambour-ID, orientation and acceptable destinations. The Tambour-ID system easily integrates with various MES e.g. Honeywell Optivision, ABB Automation, Paperline and similar systems.

We have put together a short system description of our Tambour-ID solution that can be downloaded from our website here: Link to Tambour-ID pdf.

EVS144NG camera module for upgrading your old EVS-system

We will release a new read head EVS144NG in our range of EVS barcode scanners. The EVS144NG will be equipped with a state of the art camera module and have much higher performance than our previous models.

Features for the EVS144NG read head.

  • Reading distance about 40% better compared to existing matrix camera
  • Faster code reading
  • Better auto-focus function with less moving parts
  • Less sensitive to sun-light when working outdoor
  • Prepared for -30 degrees in freeze houses or cold area
  • IP67

The camera unit is compatible with our previous range of EVS144 Line and EVS144 Matrix for upgrade.

Forklift positioning data with RFID

This week we wanted to present one of our RFID solutions that we have got many questions about. It is the use of our IDEAL134 LF-RFID reader mounted on a forklift to control its position when picking up and/or delivering pallets, for example from a storage location to a container for further shipping.
The location data will be collected through a tag that is embedded in the concrete floor at the container location, or the storage space, and is read by a custom antenna mounted below the forklift. Pick-up and delivery location can then be read on the forklift’s onboard screen or sent on to a WMS.

RFID truck

Our own RFID products and systems suitable for the logistics industry are mainly working in the LF range (125kHz). This range relatively insensitive to its surroundings, working around both water, metal, ice and snow. Reading distances are typically within 50cm which naturally reduces the risk of cross-reading another tag in the vicinity. Another advantage is that the range is less regulated and antennas can be custom made to fit a specific application without needing to be tested and approved – thus allowing a high flexibility in antenna design.We do however also help out customer to whole systems, built around what is best for their application – there are after all times when a HF or UHF system is better suited to solve a particular problem.

Regarding the RFID tags, we have a large assortment of LF and other tags among our products, such as encapsulated tags for embedding in a concrete floor, small glass tags to embed in tools and machinery, UHF sticker tags for labeling of singer products or packages, even for use in the food industry. We have also tags suited for mounting on a piece of machinery or service location, that is scanned to document when the item is serviced controlled.

EVS144 code readers for harsh environments

Ident System AB EVS144 code readers are a code reader series that is easy to install because of its small dimensions. While both EVS144 models are made for rough outdoor use, the EVS144 Imager excels in strong daylight situations, even where direct sunlight is present. The EVS144 Line Camera on the other hand is made for high reliability in low light environments and can if needed be equipped with an external spotlight. The EVS144 line is also available in a version adapted for freezing environments, down to minus 30 degrees Celsius such as frozen warehouses and harsh outdoor temperatures. If needed, we can also adapt existing units for cold temperature use. Both models have a joystick-controlled movable read-head which makes them suited for both fixed mounting such as entrance areas or conveyor belts, or forklift mounted. The long reading distances, up to 6 m for the line camera and 13 m for the matrix depending on code size, as well as large depth of sharpness and ability to read a wide range of codes as well as inverted codes, codes punched in metal sheets or low quality printed codes makes this a truly versatile series for use in harsh environments where reading conditions and/or a large flexibility to read a range of code types and object sizes are present.

How are our custom RFID antennas manufactured?

We have been talking quite a bit about our tailor-made LF-RFID antennas here in the newsletter, and we thought that some of you might be interested to see how they now are manufactured. Click on the link, or on the picture below for a short video. Link to Video.

Do you need a custom-made antenna that covers a wide area, or maybe a very small one to fit in a specific spot? Maybe shaped as a rectangle, square, or a circle or to be fitted and screwed in place like a bolt

We can help you with most requests and adapt our antennas to your needs. We can do this for both our own IDeal125 and IDeal134 (TambourID) systems and the Baumer OIS-L readers. Contact us for more details.

More about EVS144 barcode readers

We have been talking a lot about our EVS144 imager and line cameras lately, and since there is a lot to say about them we will continue doing so even this week. Besides excellent reading capabilities (autofocus and long distances), the readers are configurable to automatically capture codes as they come into reading range, this setup makes reading almost automatic as all reading is done while the goods are moved. it is also ergonomic since no extra motions are needed for the forklift driver in order to make the capture, and also reduces the risk of damaged goods. For more information and orders, please contact us at contact@identsystem.com, or through your ordinary contact within our company.
