RFID tecnologies from Distromel. Since 2008, Distromel committed itself to the design of identification products for containers in the Environmental Area. This guideline consists in complying with ISO 14803 standard, an European standard specifying the way to identify and determine the amount of waste. Our engineers in the R&D department developed a number of tags according to our experience and to the before mentioned standard, that allowed for 100% correct reading rates. In this way, our identification systems are at the top of the domestic market ranking, which led us be present in most of the national territory. Currently, the market consists in tags with HDX technology and tags with FDX technology, each tag has its pros and cons. FDX-B technology was used for developing our tags, which is the most suitable for hard and hostile environments where there are containers to identify. CRITERIA HDX FDX-B Reading range GOOD GOOD Immune to radio interferences NO YES Reading time 70ms 31msNote: in field tests, an FDX-B microchip can be read fourfold faster than an HDX- Need of synchronization in the readers. Do readers interfere with one another? YES YES NO NO Is there a loss in the reading time? When entering the field of action of a reader, identification is produced. Loading time needed. YES NO Adapted to include further technology innovations. Chemical or biological captors (parameters affecting diseases). Meets the new standard ISO 14223. Uses cutting-edge technology. NO YES Possible and proven miniaturization NO YES Suppliers Only one All Is functioning affected by metals around (magnet inside the cross-line, wiring, etc.)? A lot Little Valid technology for the entire environment (global technology) NO YES Distromel has just launched a line of identification readers through RFID at low frequency called FULL-ISO. These readers allow for tag identification with FDX and HDX technology. Our products identify, at all times, the container loaded by the vehicle allowing entering additional information in order to indicate the filling status or weigh the container waste. In this way, collection is optimised and the essence of Smart cities achieved.
