Stay cool with RFID
It seems like manufacturers and distributers of temperature and
humidity sensitive goods have finally discovered the benefits of
RFID. The key to success is temperature monitoring tags. Not only
can they prove the freshness of the goods to customers and
resellers, they can also make sure the goods stay fresh. By
connecting the tags to a monitoring system that alarms in time when
a product is kept in the wrong conditions spillage can be
prevented. RFID makes the brand stronger AND cuts costs. A win-win
situation for all parties, it seems. DB
, for example, uses temperature-logging tags to Monitor Drug
Besides from monitoring regular consumer goods
temperature-monitoring tags are also being used for other
A University of Dayton researcher developed a tag to monitor and
report whether perishable cargoes and railroad train wheels have
reached unsafe temperatures. And NYC´s
Metropolitan Museum of Art adopted RFID to manage the
environment around artwork.
Staying cool isn't the easiest thing in this hot Summer weather.
Unfortunately I haven't yet heard of a temperature-monitoring tag
for your forehead that tells you when to get out of the sun. But
remember to drink a lot and stay mostly in the shade, folks!
Wishing you all a great and sunny weekend!
