With their optimized circuit technology and intelligent software solutions, Kathrein RFID-systems can be run using significantly less energy input than comparable systems. The assistance in planning and analyzing UHF-RFID-based applications is one of Kathrein‘s fields of activity. In order to guarantee a customer-oriented support system, on-site support is also offered.
Unlimited mobility is one of the key success factors for modern civil societies and economic systems. However, growing volumes of traffic in urban conurbations mean that new, innovative solutions are required to efficiently manage transportation systems and private transport. Modern smart city solutions integrate various Auto-ID technologies in an effective overall context, combining cloud and IT-based network services as needed.
Kathrein is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of RFID identification systems. We offer the very highest-quality tailor-made turnkey solutions including hardware and software for AVI (Automatic Vehicle Identification), ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems), ETC (Electronic Toll Collect) and EVR (Electronic Vehicle Registration).
Using cutting-edge passive security transponder solutions, we are able to handle small and medium-sized challenges as well as large-scale projects such as complex, high-level government solutions.
The development potential of modern production facilities derives from the technological innovation capacity and efficiency of complex industrial processes. Conventional CIM technologies no longer reflect the state of the art, so new solutions are in urgent demand. “Industry 4.0” and “Smart Factory” are the new visions of industrial automation, aspiring to maximum efficiency in terms of quality, cost and time as well as optimum total value of ownership.
Kathrein offers the solution expertise to meet any conceivable industrial challenge. We use UHF-RFID technology to turn products into smart objects. This enables efficiency-enhancing methods of self-configuration and self-optimization. In this way, we are able to offer companies attractive improvements in production monitoring, material flow control and workpiece tracking.
Users also benefit comprehensively from full identification of machines and production lines, improved workpiece positioning and optimized kanban systems. Production data capture is enabled by a portfolio of UHF-RFID reading devices and antennas that is both extensive and high-quality, as well as by our integration tool CrossTalk SW. These allow connection with Auto-ID devices, highly efficient real-time tracking of products and flexible control. Based on our longstanding experience we are able to create smart production environments with flexible, cost-optimized installations. In doing so we provide our customers with dedicated support during each phase – from project definition and selection of the right components through to putting the industrial facilities into operation.
The capacity to track products and goods along with increasing transparency and globalization requires companies to optimize their logistical processes on a lasting basis. However, simple identification systems such as barcodes are no longer sufficient to ensure seamless traceability along the entire supply chain. Today, more detailed information is required such as value added data and changes in object status. RFID technology makes it very simple to increase efficiency and automate processes.
With its RFID portfolio, Kathrein offers smart, integrated systems which successfully support real-time visibility and stock management. We provide companies with a full range of services to implement complex technologies. These include fully automatic direction recognition at loading bays by means of the ARU-CSB system, high capture rates using intelligent antenna systems with the patented ©KRAI technology and dynamically scalable software interface layers for fast and simple integration in diverse ERP systems.
Due to the worldwide availability of our systems and the high quality standards of our components and software architecture, we are able to significantly improve our customers’ supply chain management at minimum effort, cost and time. Kathrein provides a full range of support, from the development of blueprints right through to the final go-live.
Simple and quick handling at the checkout. Supply from the back stores to the front stores. Goods supply to the back stores. Effective goods distribution and interim storage in hubs. Networking of all stores within a retail chain. And regular inventories: all these are challenges that the clothing manufacturer faces on a day-to-day basis. Clever solutions are required to achieve transparency in the supply chains - from production right through to the POS.
Kathrein starts with the logistics process. Our RFID portfolio addresses all retailers’ needs - right down to the last detail. Our intelligent technologies identify whether goods are being taken from the back store to the front store or vice versa, for example. If a customer leaves the shop with an article of clothing that has not been paid for, the system is able to detect this attempted theft. Antennas integrated in the checkout counters significantly accelerate payment of goods. Intelligent shelves automatically trigger orders as soon as items are sold and networked stores carry out inventories on an ongoing basis.
We use our expertise and service awareness to optimize our customers’ value creation chains. Our measures are based on the very highest quality standards and a holistic understanding of processes.
The ARU-CSB RFID System allows to detect fully automatically moving goods with the integrated 3 high selective read zones. For the first time it is possible to link raw RFID read data with positioning information which is directly provided from the system by using the high performing circular switch beam technology.
noFilis CrossTalk is the most advanced software suite for IoT integration and Track & Trace visualiza¬tion. CrossTalk DeviceManagement delivers plug & play integration for AutoID devices and backend systems on the market. The AppCenter provides many visual track & trace business scenarios out of the box. With the modular approach, it’s highly configurable and customizable apps allows CrossTalk to use in any scenario.
With the new © KRAI product series Kathrein has introduced a revolutionary RFID system.
