ISM Products For Inventory Management
If the objective is to determine the presence or absence of products or goods inventory control may be inexpensively accomplished with passive RFID systems. Passive RFID tags contain no power source and rely upon a magnetically induced energy from the reader for power. The result is long life, although passive tags do not have the ability to communicate until a reader is within range, typically several feet or less. When inventory environment monitoring is needed wireless sensor networks monitor and report temperature, humidity, shock, smoke and more. Panasonic modules with integrated SNAP firmware allow engineers to quickly test different protocols – ISM, 802.15.4, Bluetooth -- and determine the best solution for a specific application. Panasonic offers nearly fifty different modules to build a wireless sensor network fine tuned to specific application requirements.
