Transportation Company Automates the Management of Trains and Transport Containers Using HARTING MICA and RFID

A transportation company needed to automate the management of their transport containers and trains in a freight yard. Previously, they managed all of the data through manual entry in Excel spreadsheets. Often simple questions required comparing several long spreadsheets that could be outdated or incorrect. Some of these issues included: location of railway car on a track, location of a specific container on a train, when or if a car is due for maintenance.

The solution needed to provide all data in a glance and automatically update in real time. In addition, the solution needed to be suitable for an industrial, high-vibration environment and able to be processed at speeds up to 75 mph.

Learn how the HARTING MICA combined with an Industrial RFID solution made this possible.
