Keonn’s components used for supply chain tracking

A multinational car manufacturer has implemented RFID portals in its industrial facilities using Keonn’s readers and antennas, to enable real-time traceability for the entire supply chain.

The project has been deployed by Maccion, a system integrator specialized in solutions for the industry 4.0.

The solution consists of three RFID portals: one at the reception area for receiving goods, one at the line-supply area for detecting material going in and out of that area, and one for tracking empty boxes sent back to the suppliers. These portals use AdvanReader-150 and Advantenna-SP12.

With this system, the car manufacturer reduces reception time and shipment time of materials, eliminates human errors and improves business decisions by having real-time data

New Keonn product: Advantenna-SP12

Advantenna-SP12 is an ultra-light RFID UHF antenna with a very high gain, curtain beam shape, and thin form factor.

The excellent performance of this antenna makes it ideal for RFID applications that involve reading hundreds of tags in high-density environments, such as RFID portals, RFID tunnels, tracking systems, etc.

This antenna provides excellent results even with pallets carrying 200 RFID tagged electronic consumer goods

Advantenna-SP12 can be purchased with an enclosure or without enclosure. The enclosure is designed especially for its use in warehouses, distribution centers, and industrial facilities.


Seafolly enhances the customer experience with AdvanMirror

Seafolly, an Australian boutique-style swimwear brand, has equipped its Bondi flagship store with Keonn’s RFID magic mirror.

Keonn’s United States Patent

A Keonn patent about inventory robots has been granted by the United States Patent office.

Keonn's AdvanRobot is a mobile and autonomous RFID system that performs automatically the inventory of a given space, for instance, a retail store.

It provides an RFID inventory accuracy typically of 99.8% - 99.9%, higher than any other inventory system, and reduces the cost of stock-taking.

AdvanRobot also locates each tagged item and provides a 3 dimension planogram of the products inside a space.

This information helps customers finding the products they are looking for, help employees detecting misplaced items, and accelerates picking and return management.
