The Electronic Product Code


A Serial number (ID) created for RFID tags that compleme
nts barcodes.


Adopts from Global Trade Item Number (GTIN).

Application Solutions





1. Warehouse Pallet Control

Solution



Attach an ID Tag to each pallet, and write the pallet number onto the ID Tag. Then install an Antenna
on the forklift and connect it to a PLC or other control unit on the forklift. The operator can then drive to
the pallet storage area by following either a work instruction sheet or wireless communications, confirm
that the pallet number read by the Antenna contains the desired cargo, and load it onto the forklift (basic
application method).



By also writing product information in addition to the pallet number onto the ID Tag, the information
that is read by the Antenna when the pallet is loaded onto the forklift can by sent to the host system by
wireless communications to help managing distribution control data inside the warehouse.











Application Solutions





2. Controlling Forklift Operation in Warehouse












Place an ID Tag on the roof of the forklift (secure with a magnet if necessary). Then install one
Antenna each at the entrance and exit of the warehouses. (For the most accurate control, these
should ideally be designated as one
-
way routes. This point must be covered by control measures.)



Store the number of the forklift and, if necessary, the name of the driver, in the ID Tag. The
Antennas will then read the data from the ID Tag each time the forklift enters and leaves the
warehouse, and send it to the host system. A system can also be built so that an alarm is sent to the
forklift driver if he tries to enter the wrong warehouse.


For additional control, the time that the forklift passes each Antenna can be written to the ID Tag.
That data can later be uploaded to a database to show the operational flow of the forklifts.


Application Solutions

3. Inventory Control for Automated Warehouses












Mount Data Carriers (ID Tags) to the pallets and store the pallet number and information about the
contents of the pallet (e.g., component numbers, model numbers, and quantities) in the Data Carriers.



In response to a storage instruction, read (automatically) all the information in the Data Carrier, and,
after checking the contents, store the pallet in the specified rack, and record the rack number of the
stored pallet in the host computer.



In response to a delivery instruction from the host computer, take the pallet from the applicable rack,
and after checking the pallet information, send the pallet to the picking or sorting process.

Application Solutions

4. Controlling the Entry/Exit of Contractors













Install an Antenna at the gates to read data (contractor's name, driver's name, truck number) from
ID Tags held by the drivers, and write that data and the entry/exit time to a database. The driver does
not need to leave the truck to do this. He can simply face the ID Tag in the direction of the Antenna to
pass through the gate.




By comparing the times read from the ID Tag when passing through the entry and exit gates, the
peak traffic times inside the company grounds can be determined





Application Solutions

5. Cargo Container Management






Mount an ID Tag to the container holding the cargo, and install an Antenna near the loading and/or
unloading locations. Information can then be written to and read from the ID tag mounted to the
container. In addition to the basic container number, the ID Tag can also store the necessary cargo
data, destination data, station data, date, courier name, contractor name, security data, and more.



To provide even more thorough control of the cargo destination, Antennas can be installed at each
point to be confirmed along the route and every branching location. The data can then be read as the
cargo passes by to make sure that it is following the specified route correctly.



Application Solutions

6. Branch Control for Automated Warehouse Deliveries












Write the component classification data onto an ID Tag attached to the pallet following the injection
process.



Control the branching at a point immediately before the pallet enters the automated warehouse.



Use the self
-
execution mode of the V670 to conduct branching control, thus simplifying control at the host
system.


Application Solutions

7. Transport and Control of Construction Materials




Install an Antenna and display at the entrance gate to read data (contractor's name, driver's name, truck
number) from ID Tags held by the drivers. Weigh the loaded truck, and write that data to the ID Tag.
When the weighing is completed, the unloading station is shown on the display.



After the driver unloads the materials at the specified station, he proceeds to the exit gate. There, the
data on the ID Tag is read and the empty truck is weighed. The difference in the two weights (loaded and
empty) is used to determine the weight of the load and a form with that information is automatically
issued to the driver.
