The trend of continuous condition monitoring also has an impact on the RFID sector. For one thing, RFID sensors are used in mobile applications for instance to identify objects and their states. For another, they are used in fixed installations to monitor machine or product conditions. Based on the analysis of the sensor data, a reliable and fast reacting security system can be realized.
Combining the RFID reader by Harting with the advanced sensor technology of EPHY-MESS, creates an extremely robust industrial and railway-compliant RFID sensor system solution. The RFID technology eliminates the use of expensive cable connections and their costly installation and maintenance. Later in the operation, the system replaces time intensive manual and visual inspections, further it reduces downtimes and increases availability. Additionally, it facilitates a predictive maintenance and helps to prevent damage to bogie components such as wheel set bearings, gears or traction.
