Project for development of customized RFID hardware in medical technology completed successfully
Additionally to the production of industrial RFID labels, GERA-IDENT GmbH has intensified its focus in the last few years on the development of customized RFID hardware. This means that a product is developed and manufactured, from its conception and prototypes all the way to its serial production, in close cooperation with the customer.
Another project has now been successfully completed and carried forward into serial production. Together with a developer and a manufacturer of radiotherapy systems, an RFID system has been developed for the detection of probes on X-ray machines. The aim is to ensure that the correct lens barrel is being attached to the device, depending on the medical requirements. The system consists of a reader and an antenna in the flange, as well as a transponder for each of the various tubes. The antenna and transponder are completely enclosed by metal, turning this task into a real challenge. By combining the know-how of both companies in design engineering in the medical field and in high-frequency technology in demanding environments, the challenge could be resolved.
GERA-IDENT invests continuously in expanding its expertise, in order to be technically and personally equipped for such developments, thereby enabling companies including smaller medium-sized ones, to master the challenges of Industry 4.0 and digitalization with smart products.
