Barcoding Inc. displays RFID Active Shelf System at next Week's NRF Show in the Javits Center: Booth 1463

Barcoding Inc., the nationally recognized leader in automated data-capture solutions, will display its RFID Active Shelf inventory track system. This RFID shelving system is an affordable way of conducting continuous inventory counts in retail stores, stockrooms, pharmacies, libraries, and warehouses.

How it Works:

A single RFID reader is combined with an array of antennas placed within the shelves to create inventory zones. Zones can be divided by racks, shelves, or segments within each shelf. The zones are continuously monitored by the system so you know the actual status of your retail inventory at all times.

The RFID antennas within each zone monitor RFID signals from the tags that are placed on or embedded in your products. The antennas send identifying information through our patent-pending hybrid multiplexer which then transmits the data to a central RFID reader. This reader connects to your database through either a hard-wired connection or through a wireless infrastructure. Inventory levels are then available to you via a web interface or an XML feed from the system.

Active Shelf can be connected to external devices at the edge of each shelf, such as a light or a sensor. These devices can be used to detect motion near a shelf and have the inventory level checked immediately, or if an item is found in the wrong location, a light can alert workers that something is out of place.

Active Shelf can read both High-Frequency (HF) and Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) RFID tags. As RFID standards evolve, your investment in the system is protected because you can switch to different frequencies and tag formats.

Attendees of NRF wishing to see and test out this new technology should stop by booth 1463 during this week's show at the Javits Center.
