LF WIP Shelf

  1. RFID
  2. LF WIP Shelf

The RFID WIP shelving solution from HERMOS offers the possibility to equip lattice shelves with RFID functionality. This solution is applicable for all common shelf types and sizes and allows the retrofitting of existing shelves. The antenna heads are mounted directly on the shelf and connected to a central reader unit. The occupancy of a shelf location is detected by an integrated light sensor and an identification is performed automatically. Visualization at the shelf locations is provided by a multicolor LED or an e-ink display. The shelf status and stock changes can be displayed on a panel PC.

Touch panel PC (optional)
Status information, rack occupancy and other details can be displayed directly on the touch panel PC or transferred to the host.

Flexible configuration
The system is suitable for existing lattice racks and other rack types. It can be expanded modularly at any time. The number of rack locations and levels is flexible.

Ethernet and USB interface
Easy and uncomplicated integration due to the Ethernet interface.

Process integration
Easy integration due to the support of the SEMI Equipment Communication Standard (SECS/HSMS).

Automatic data acquisition
Automatic reading and data forwarding provides continuous inventory control.

Event-controlled processes
ensure long component life.

E-Ink Displays
Detailed information can be displayed directly on an e-ink display.
