Essintial℠ deployed the RFID system at its 30,000-square-foot warehouse in Lewisberry. The solution is designed to track parts from when they are received at the warehouse and stored in various inventory locations, including “good” and “defective” bins and shelves, through their relocation to the depot repair, the clean room and then the shipping area. The facility has 10 fixed RFID readers from Motorola Solutions (now Zebra Technologies), including two at the shipping dock, two at the receiving dock, two leading into the repair depot, two into the defective part area, and two into the good inventory area. Antennas, also supplied by Motorola, were deployed to receive the RFID tag’s signal. Equipment is often rolled in on carts, and the antennas can read tags from a couple of inches off the ground to at least 6 feet high. Parts are identified using passive EPC Gen 2 ultrahigh-frequency Squiggle labels from Alien Technology. The tag information includes the manufacturer part number, Essintial part number, description, RFID unique tag number, serial number, bin or shelf location, and warranty expiration date.
