Imagine being able to identify hundreds of items in seconds.
That's the power of RFID.
Why should you invest in RFID?
Scan and process hundreds of items in seconds without the need to physically scan every individual item.
Instantly check the number of items brought back and identify missing items like cables in seconds.
Let your crew members do less manual work, and give them more time to work on perfecting productions.
How RFID works
The components of RFID technology
Includes a transceiver & an antenna. The reader receives data from the RFID tag and stores it in a database.
Includes a transponder with a circuit & an antenna. The tag transmits inventory data to the reader.
Data transmitted to the database gets identified. This is where the connection with Rentman happens.
Get started with RFID tracking
The first step after purchasing your hardware might seem like the most tedious one, as you have to manually attach tags to each piece of equipment. We recommend grouping items based on a set of criteria, such as materials, size, importance etc.
For equipment where attaching the tag is difficult, such as cables, we recommend getting heat shrinking tubes to secure your tags in place.
Tip: Since tags are relatively small, make sure to mark tagged items to have a better overview of items that still have to be tagged.
Link tags to equipment in your Rentman account by using the Rentman app.
Grab all the tagged items that you need and place them inside the flight case.
Once you're done packing, grab your RFID scanner and scan your flight case to see the items inside.
We recommend getting a scanner set from Zebra, such as the TC26 and the RFD40 for optimal performance.
The RFD40 pairs with the TC26 for optimal RFID capabilities. With its long-range scanning capabilities and high-speed data transfer, the device allows users to capture and transmit large amounts of data in real-time.
Do you already have a Zebra scanner? Make sure it supports RFID, as not all of them have this capability.
