An Easier Way to Configure Industrial RFID
TURCK’s free configuration software aids in RFID equipment selection by quickly simulating an application’s parameters and values. It helps define variables like data quantity, speed and distance, and simulates an entire application’s RFID requirements simply and easily. Learn More RFID Programming at Any Location
Read and write operations are easily programmed to data carriers via an RFID handheld device. The data is displayed on an illuminated touch screen where it may be edited and written to the appropriate data carrier as required. The BL ident handheld device operates with Microsoft Windows CE, making data transfer as simple as exporting a Microsoft Excel file. Learn More
RFID PDA System: Seeing Eye for the Blind
RFID technology is everywhere. It is on the back of a bottle of aspirin, attached to a designer shirt, and embedded under a pet’s skin. Imagine if these tags could seamlessly communicate with their consumers and users in the marketplace and provide identifying information. Now they can. Full Story RFID: Beyond the Drive for Five
For almost a decade, the "nickel tag" has loomed unattainably on the horizon. The European Central Bank has even been rumored to be hatching a plan to weave the five-cent Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags into the fabric of its currency. There is, it seems, no limit to the reach of RFID once that five-cent goal is attained. Full Story What’s Your RFID Spin?
Supply chain mandates for use of radio frequency identification device (RFID) technologies put control engineers in a position of strength, since engineers have long seen RFID more as a benefit than a cost. Two approaches continue to be underway in many facilities. Read More

In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
