Feb 1, 2007 12:00 PM
Intermec Inc has introduced the Adaptable Load Backrest and Antenna Cell system. This RFID (radio frequency identification) forklift installation system allows forklift drivers to use RFID and other data collection technologies to gather complete real-time inventory data efficiently and safely without leaving their vehicle. Intermec partnered with Cascade Corp to create an RFID-enabled forklift system that integrates durable, rugged inventory and data collection technology with existing forklift equipment. The system improves performance and safety while reducing the cost of RFID forklift deployments in warehouse applications.
The Intermec Adaptable Load Backrest and Antenna Cell system can be made to accommodate almost all forklifts on the market, and it meets OSHA and industry safety requirements. Flexible and configurable, the Adaptable Load Backrest switches easily from one application to another, allowing the driver to accomplish pallet-, case-, and even shelf-level readings without retrofit systems.
