What Makes RFID Systems Industrial Strength?
Determining if Equipment will Survive in True Industrial Environments

The retail environments where products are sold look nothing like the
industrial environments where they are produced (think of the difference
between a new car dealership and an automotive manufacturing plant).
Yet the same RFID products developed for retail stores and supply
chain operations are heavily marketed to manufacturers for production
operations. These products may have different housings or IP ratings than
their general-purpose cousins and may work fine in warehouses, but that
does not necessarily qualify them as industrial grade.

Three fundamental qualities determine if RFID systems will perform reliably
in demanding production environments:
  • Will the RFID system integrate seamlessly with industrial control systems?
  • Will it provide the reliability and speed that production and information systems require?
  • Can it maintain uptime and performance long term – will it last as long as the production line?
