“There are a number of products that cannot be laid on their side without causing damage,” said Angela Kerr, vice president, product management, SpotSee. “When you are serious about keeping goods positioned correctly through the supply chain, a tilt-monitoring indicator is a logical choice. By combining RFID technology with a tilt indicator, TiltWatch RFID provides clear evidence when a shipment is transported or stored at an inappropriate angle."
TiltWatch RFID was designed to encompass all the benefits of a condition-monitoring program while also giving users an electronic record of information, captured in an enterprise resource planning (ERP) or warehouse management system. When goods pass through an RFID gate, the TiltWatch RFID tag quickly identifies if products might have been damaged due to being tipped. Users then know if there is a need for further inspection of a package. Data provides transparency by identifying trouble spots in the supply chain and conveying the need for refined processes to reduce supply chain disruptions.
The indicator is triggered when the item it’s affixed to is mishandled and tilted beyond 80 degrees. TiltWatch RFID gives users an electronic record; communicating that damage may have occurred when scanned with any Gen 2 UHF reader. While it provides a visual sign of tilt by turning read, reading the indicator with RFID eliminates the need for visual inspection which speeds the receiving process. This cost-effective, single-use indicator is serialized, tamperproof and not affected by random vibration encountered in transportation.
