What is an anti-theft solution for logistics equipment?
Logistics equipment is a high-value item of equipment that is often the victim of theft, whether intentional or not, resulting in significant additional costs for companies. Indeed, this equipment used by operators, but also by carriers, is regularly forgotten in the trailers of trucks.
In order to address this challenge and to secure the equipment, companies do not hesitate to invest in innovative anti-theft solutions.
How does the anti-theft solution for logistics equipment actually work?
This anti-theft solution for logistics equipment is using the Active DOT RFID technology developed by ELA Innovation. In order to secure the equipment fleet, Active DOT RFID tags are fixed on the equipment, a tag reader will be installed near the exit barrier of the logistics site and connected to the security PC. When a truck approaches the exit, if a machine has been left in the trailer, the RFID tag will be detected by the reader. In this case, the barrier does not open and an audible and visual alert is triggered in the security PC.
The particularity of the RFID DOT system is its dual-frequency operation:
– A low frequency (125 KHz) allowing a precise and configurable detection (from 1 to 15m).
– A high frequency (433 MHz) allowing the secure transmission of data.
This technology offers a reading speed of less than 1 second, giving a very good reactivity and therefore serves for real-time information.
