With the use of field deployed technology, mobile assets with major infrastructure equipment makes the Power & Utility industry uniquely suited to the financial returns possible with RFID technology. Tracking service equipment or tools can significantly reduce costs from inventory loss. Tracking fixed infrastructure’s location and use can provide needed service information.
Field-based RFID Management
With the advent of new RFID tags and more robust fixed and portable reader technology as a foundation for innovation, the utility industry has optimized field and plant resources by tagging a growing inventory of asset items. Though this has increased the complexity of RFID requirements, the benefits far outweigh the complexities.
Tracking a Variety of Assets
For example, the use of tags on fixed field infrastructure like poles, generators, surplus transmission equipment and plant inventory mix with the mobility of field worker equipment and tools. The environment and variety of assets requiring tracking places significant burden on even the most robust RFID management solution.
