CSL CS101 RFID Handheld Reader - Presentation For GS1 Summit 2008

  1. 1. Albert Lai, Convergence Systems Limited RFID Handheld Reader Long Read Range, High Read Rate & Geiger Counter Tag Search
  2. 2. • CSL is the only company in the world with both passive and active RFID offerings: passive RFID, active RTLS RFID, as well as Cross-over Passive + Active RTLS products. • CSL is a one stop shop providing readers, antennas, cables and customized tags. • CSL RFID products are sold to more than 30 countries all over the world. • CSL is EPC member and participates in HAG, SAG, JRG. • CSL is part of Chung Nam Group, a 73 years company
  3. 3. Business Challenges: “Can the industry offer a handheld reader with fixed reader performance?” (from Unisys) 1. Many physical locations and process nodes cannot be handled by either fixed reader or handheld reader because: 1. Many locations do not allow fixed reader (loading zone, etc.) 2. Range from reader to tag is too long for handheld reader 3. There are water or metal content in between reader and tag 4. Because of 1, to 3, above, there are places where neither fixed reader nor handheld reader work – hence loopholes of visibility in the supply chain
  4. 4. Business Challenges #2: Read Rate of HHT 2. Inventory takes too long a time – if read rate can go up 10 times, inventory can be done 1. MUCH faster 2. MUCH more often 3. You can also do item level inventory much more easily Benefits: 1. Replenishment of empty shelf daily 2. Reduce shrink, which is a SIZABLE cost in all warehouses and department stores – in economic downturn, this is the fastest way to improve profit !!
  5. 5. Business Challenges #3 3. Searching for an item is a daily necessity – but no way to do that effectively: 1. Searching for an item is needed in warehouse outgoing shipment 2. Searching and selecting is also needed in distribution centers 3. Searching is also needed for time critical fast retrieval or locating of assets or documents Benefits: 1. Reduce time of search and hence COST 2. More satisfied customers, therefore company more competitive
  6. 6. RFID Solutions: CS101 Handheld Reader 1. Read Range • outdoor up to 7 meters for VP, up to 9 meters for HP • Indoor 8 to 12 meters 2. Read Rate: • Up to 150 tags per second DRM mode • Up to 400 tags/sec non- DRM mode 3. Geiger Counter Tag Search: • Search tag using Audio Beep, beeps faster when you get nearer to the tag
  7. 7. Results Pallet is 2 meters x 2 meters, diagonal 2.8 meters Tags are horizontally mounted Taking into account water content or metal content causing 50% reduction in read range ∴ Read Range > 6 Meters is needed
  8. 8. Results if you have 300,000 tagged items to inventory, If read rate = 10 tags/sec, you need 8 hours If read rate = 100 tags/sec, you need 50 minutes
  9. 9. Results Because of the breakthrough in read range and read rate of CS101, Continuous Real Time Inventory of Department Stores or Supermarket is possible because the CS101 handheld reader can be skillfully used by an operator without disturbing normal business activities
  10. 10. Results Document Search is a daily chore by MANY companies in the world. Up to 10% time per day is spent on searching document – if solved, this is automatically 10% improvement in productivity The long range Geiger Counter Tag Search function is VERY useful in that area
  11. 11. Geiger Counter Tag Search 1) Operator picks up the tag at 7 meters away 2) Operator walks toward it and hear the beeping frequency increases 3) If operator walks away from it, the beeping frequency decreases 1 Beep Per 1 Beep 2 Beeps 3 Beeps Final 10 cm: 2 Seconds Per Per Per Sing a Song Second Second Second
  12. 12. Results Geiger Counter Tag Search: Loci of Search 1. Operator can swing around 360 degrees to catch all 7 meters areas around him quickly 2. Circle is larger indoor 7 meters 7 meters 3. Circle is very large in metal wall confined structures 150 square 4. Circle is smaller when 7 meters meters !! blocked or lots of water rich content or tag is near metal content
  13. 13. Results 1. Electronic Vehicle Registration (EVR) tag is becoming popular 2. Police needs a long read range handheld reader 3. One of the earliest market request to CSL !!
  14. 14. Results Even better, a GSM/GPRS + GPS Plug-in makes it location capable outdoor (can couple with Google Map !!)
  15. 15. Results – Indoor Passive+Active RTLS For indoor, an RTLS Plug-in with +/- 1 meter resolution makes it location capable indoor. Coupling that with floor map software, one can then easily location map all passive tag tagged items
  16. 16. CS5111 RTLS Reader CS5111 RTLS Reader +/- 1 meter indoor RTLS resolution allows passive tag CS5113 RTLS inventory AND location fix !! Reader with Ethernet Bridge CS5111 RTLS Reader Large warehouse, distribution center, retail store, post office, business office (asset tracking), library, document center, hospital, factory assembly floor, etc.
