RFID - Radio Frequency Identification Training

Theory can only get you so far, time to get your hands dirty…

Pepperl+Fuchs are a running a series of free practical hands on training sessions for RFID throughout April and May. The ½ day sessions are designed to give engineers a safe and supportive environment within which they can learn and experiment with RFID technology.

As the Industry 4.0 movement gathers momentum strategic requests are increasingly being made on engineers to implement tracking and traceability solutions, but many engineers have little or no RFID experience.  Simon Franks, Senior Design Engineer at Datacom said "These courses are very useful, it's important to get your hands dirty and understand the limitations of the technologies. I've seen too many over ambitious projects stumble or even fail because of a fundamental lack of first-hand experience. If you think that you can specify an RFID solution from datasheets, think again, practical tests and analysis are the only way to ensure reliable operation."

The sessions are relatively informal with enough structure to facilitate learning but with the freedom to explore individual application examples. Each session covers LF, HF and UHF technologies, using a range of tags, readers and interface options.

RFID – The Key to Industry 4.0

As factories evolve to become more flexible and more responsive the importance of automatic identification increases and RFID is likely to play a fundamental part in this story.

Reviews and Comments

"Thank you for a great seminar. The presentation covered all the topics we wanted and it was very useful to have Helen and Dave with their in-depth technical knowledge."

"The presentation covered all the “grey” areas and the all participants found it very interesting."

"This seminar will definitely help us to design better and more reliable networks. The new products presentation was also a great addition. We found some new modules really interesting and I’m sure we will used them in our future projects."
