Factory environments create challenges for RFID readers—including metallic elements that inhibit read range and exposure to heat, solvents and lubricants. United Access Ltd. collaborated with ELATEC to jointly develop a highly customized industrial RFID reader to support RFID-enabled machine setup and workforce automation.


  • Harsh environment including lots of metal, aggressive solvents and lubricants.
  • Metallic environment interferes with RFID, inhibiting reliable reads.
  • Needed to integrate with an industrial computer running Beckhoff control software using an RS485 protocol.
