Next-Generation Asset Tracking using IoT & RFID
The construction industry requires RFID technology in various use cases such as employee tracking in the sites as well as equipment and asset tracking across the sites. Hexahash asset Tracking Solution uses various technologies for managing, tracking, and maintaining assets throughout its facilities. It gives detailed information like who is using the asset, location of the device, health, status, and performance of the assets.
IOT based Asset Tracking
IoT is the next wave of tracking technology that combines geolocation technologies with Internet-of-Things technologies. Hexahash provides a cutting-edge geo IoT based asset tracking system for the enterprises.
IoT is the productivity enhancer and growth enabler when we use it in the right combination of RFID or IoT sensors. Geo IoT provides ubiquitous location intelligence which is valuable for every business vertical.
How would you differentiate IoT asset tracking vs conventional asset tracking using RFID, BLE, and/or UWB When you search for equipment in your shop floor or construction site, RFID / BLE can give you an exact location of the asset in a few minutes. But what if additional information can be attached to it? Such as adding most recent location info, previous location info, how often is it being used and who was the last person used the tool.
Hexahash offers IoT combined with RFID and BLE technologies to take your asset tracking to the next level which is easier and faster.RFID asset tracking system can be integrated with an RFID employee tracking system to analyze not only assets but also employee interactions with assets.
RFID Based Asset Tracking System
Know Your Tool When you need it is more important than anything
HexaTrack RFID asset tracking system is an end-to-end asset life cycle management solution that tracks and monitors assets in real-time. RFID Tags attached with your equipment give way to monitor and maintain it till end of the life of the tool. It will save your time and cost and gives a faster ROI on the investment of RFID asset tracking equipment.
Hexa RFID asset tracking equipment will automatically track the location of the asset and its status in the HexaRTLS asset management software. We have more than 7 years of experience in asset management consulting and services for world-leading industries and enterprises.
What are the components involved in RFID based asset tracking?
RFID Handheld Reader
Fixed RFID readers are better readers for the always-on and unattended asset tracking. When you have a fixed reader, fixed in the right orientation will scan all the tool movements within your premises. You don’t need to have a manual operation to manage the tools and its whereabouts.
There are 4 Port readers, 2 Port reader and single port reader, which can be used according to your environment. Our readers are world’s best and proven readers used by fortune 500 companies around the world.
UHF passive RFID readers having ethernet, serial, and console ports for communication protocol. Our readers are having Poe port, hence you can have LAN connectivity as well as power in a single cable.
RFID reader has ports to connect the RFID antenna. We provide 9 dB UHF circular polarized or linear antenna which can be used as per your industry and its environment. We have 3 dBm, 6 dBm, 9 dBm as well as 12 dB UHF passive antenna can read tags effectively and accurately.
RFID Hand Held Reader
Handheld readers are good for mobility and it can read tags from shorter read range to longer read range. If fixed readers can not be extended to all the places of your premise, you can use the handheld reader, which will help you to achieve the same objective of fixed readers.
RFID UBS Desktop Reader
Hexahash manufactures USB Desktop RFID readers for mapping the assets with RFID labels or tags. We provide tagging software that can import a complete inventory of assets in an excel or CSV format to import into our HexaTrack asset management software to map the items with respective UHF labels.
UHF passive RFID labels have various form factors and can be used as per the use case and environment of the business. We provide non-metal RFID labels, On-metal RFID labels, Ceramic RFID tags, heat resistant RFID tags, and many other tag types for use with a wide range of assets, equipment, and tools.
Asset Tracking Software
Asset tracking software has integration with UHF RFID reader and antenna which can track assets automatically 24/7. We provide complete asset life cycle management software that can track asset status from the date of purchase till the end of its life. Our asset management software has an inbuilt analytical features and Microsoft Power BI based live dashboard features which are very unique and useful for the organization.
you can reach us for more discussion on your asset management requirement.
BLE based Asset Tracking System
BLE based asset tracking system empowers asset management further by adding IoT sensors into the BLE asset tags. Asset tags can have an accelerometer, humidity, temperature sensors in order to identify not only its location but also its environment. BLE tags are very useful compared to UHF RFID tags as line of sight is not required for BLE asset tags.
Lora Based Long Range Asset Tracking System
LoraWAN based asset tags attached to asset equipment offers very long-range asset identification and tracking. Lora offers 10s of 100s of miles of long-range tracking of assets. Package tracking is easier with lorawan technique as it can give you the proximity of the tag along with its latitude and longitude. If assets getting moved from a designated location, you can receive a notification that asset has been moved or in transit, which will helpful for the organization to take appropriate steps to track packages or equipment in real-time.
UWB Based Asset Tracking System
UWB based asset tracking or tool tracking helps organizations to have a less than 5-centimeter accuracy of the tool location which help the organization to identify their tool or equipment in exact location which is not possible with other technique so accurately.
