WEPCO, Inc.’s SmartRoller Embedded RFID Reader consists of an integrated antenna and RFID reader mounted within a conveyor roller. It is simple, clean, and easy to maintain and replace. Just pop out one roller and pop in the reader.
Roller bearing end caps and spring-loaded hex shaft mounting pegs allow users to seamlessly replace one roller with the SmartRoller. The antenna and controller constantly communicate with at least one transponder moving along the interrogation path, sending a consistent stream of data.
WEPCO and RFID Inc. are working together to manufacture and market the SmartRoller.
