The ProductsOur individual products are based on RFID technology (Radio Frequency Identification). RFID-systems are applicable everywhere where labelling, identification, registration, stocking, monitoring and transportation should be automatized.– short: a great efficiency potential is identified for companies with automatization focus.
For every RFID product we deliver the hardware, electric control system together with applications for management. For our customers it means receiving everything out of one hand of SIL. Furthermore for all SIL products defined quality and functional standards are applied which are high over legal requirements.
