RRU 4000 RFID Reader unit & ARU 3000 RFID Antenna Reader unit

Based on the strong demand for AutoID systems and solutions that are directly integrated into vital planning and production control systems, Kathrein is fully orienting its product strategy towards the TCP/IP standard. The focus in developing the next reader generation, therefore, was no longer limited to excellent reading performance, processing power and ease-of-use, but put on a comprehensive and scaleable connectivity of systems via PoE+, WLAN or 3G mobile networks. The combination of industrial PCs – that have once again increased in performance – with powerful and flexible IoT software platforms enable an efficient integration of business processes into an existing IT infrastructure.

KATHREIN Expands its Activities in the Area of IoT Solutions

Kathrein acquired the company noFilis located in Ismaning on 1 May 2016. The company develops and sells platform-independent software for integrating RFID/AutoID systems and sensor devices into ERP and SCM systems. As a result of this takeover, Kathrein can now offer RFID hardware and software expertise from one source. At the sector’s world leading trade fair, the RFID Journal LIVE! in Orlando from 3-5 May, the companies will already be making a joint appearance.

Kathrein RFID is the leading producer of professional identification solutions in the area of ultra high frequency technology. The company offers innovative and high-performance RFID hardware such as readers and antennas. This hardware is used for example in vehicle detection, in industry, in logistics and in retail sales.
RFID solutions from one source

“With the acquisition of our long-standing partner noFilis, we will be able to offer full-scale RFID solutions from one source allowing us to consult and care for our customers even better in the future,” says Thomas Brunner, Head of Sales and Marketing, RFID, within the Kathrein Group. The “CrossTalk” software developed by noFilis can be integrated into all current ERP and SCM systems. The platform-independent solution is a world market leader and is certified for integration into SAP among other things. “The flexible integration into different IT environments is a powerful argument on the market,” says Brunner. Kathrein RFID and noFilis have a long and successful history of cooperation in the areas of logistics and supply chain management.
For noFilis the takeover also represents a strategic turning point for the future: “By being integrated into the Kathrein Group, we are benefiting from a renowned brand name and a strong worldwide sales and service network. Now we can position our software expertise on the market even more prominently,” says Patrick Hartmann, Global Sales Director of noFilis AutoID GmbH.
RFID as the underlying basis for the Internet of Things (IoT)

Identifying objects using passive RFID is a key technology required for the Internet of Things: RFID tags supply valuable automated tracking information. The flow of goods and logistics processes can be controlled and managed in this way for example. RFID transponders can be integrated into virtually all objects and the data they deliver can be collected in real time when they pass a read device. In contrast to the barcode, RFID can capture hundreds of RFID transponders at the same time. In addition, RFID tagged objects can be located and tracked.

  • RFID Technology from Kathrein Makes Traffic Light Smart

Quelle: HPA

The first intelligent traffic light came into operation at the Port of Hamburg recently. It reacts to the needs of vehicles and pedestrians and adjusts its stop signals accordingly. The flow of trucks can be optimised by wireless communication using RFID technology (Radio frequency identification) from Kathrein. In addition, pedestrians should be able to move more quickly and safely through the busy port.

The technology of the so-called "smartPORT Traffic Light” works like this: vehicles and pedestrians are equipped with an RFID chip, which communicates via Wi-Fi with the Kathrein RFID system at the traffic light. The intelligent light then controls the traffic according to the congestion. Thus, trucks approaching a light will be able to expand or advance the green light in order to pass the light without stopping. In-between stops can be avoided. At the same time, the drivers are informed on a small screen in the cab whether or not they must stop or continue at the traffic light.

"RFID technology is an important component of the traffic environmental network," explains Thomas Brunner, Sales Manager at Kathrein RFID. “As the project in Hamburg shows, our powerful and reliable RFID solutions meet the technical requirements in an outstanding manner.” The management of the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) is convinced of the benefits of RFID technology. They want to set up more intelligent traffic lights to navigate truck traffic optimally through the huge area. This is not only reasonable economically but it also helps to protect the environment, as the trucks arrive at their destination quicker. Pedestrian safety also increases: they are recognised by the traffic light which then transmits an information to the approaching vehicle. That way the driver has sufficient time to adapt to the pedestrian.
