Datanet provide robust solutions to the Resource Sector that have been designed to withstand harsh and hazardous environments and provide real time visibility of assets in remote locations.
RFID in the Resource Sector
RFID technology has developed rapidly over the last 30 years and today is more affordable and powerful than ever. Active and Passive RFID solutions when combined with GPS tracking and cloud based applications are providing powerful tools for the mining and energy industries faced with the enormous task of tracking equipment, product and personnel over multiple sites in harsh conditions. RFID solutions can automatically track materials and equipment in real time, both globally and locally, significantly enhancing supply chain efficiency.
RFID can be used to track tools, assets and safety equipment providing significant benefits for the resource sector. Organisations can accurately identify, manage and control tools and safety equipment such as lifting slings or breathing apparatus by utilising small form factor robust RFID tags that are low in cost and designed to withstand the rigours of day to day abuse, abrasion, impact and heat whilst remaining 100% reliable and usable when they need to be read.
Recent advancement in RFID technology now enables the delivery of on-metal, in-metal and off-metal RFID tags with custom printed information to manage assets and materials. RFID tags have also been designed that can be embedded in concrete to provide long term reliable identification during the construction phase and afterwards for inspection and maintenance procedures.
