RUD ID System
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is continuously evolving as a significant technological development, as it facilitates documentation, inspection and inventory management processes.
RUD was one of the first manufacturers to embed RFID chips into its products. RFID technology enables clients to track, identify, inspect and trace alle equipment. The components are embedded with a RFID chip and given a unique identification number that is then tracked through a customised reader.
The reader captures the unique identification number and transfers it to the PC application so that clients can easily manage the documentation and administration of their products.
RUD’s RFID technology means that equipment can now be quickly identified without errors and the product ID number can be easily managed and registered.
