WEPCO, Inc. (Pittston, PA) has announced the SmartRoller™ Embedded RFID Reader, an integrated antenna and RFID reader mounted within a conveyor roller. The SmartRoller RFID reader solves the materials handling industry’s need for a plug-and-play RFID reader in a roller. An integrated antenna and RFID reader are mounted to the core inside a roller tube. Roller bearing end caps and spring-loaded hex shaft mounting pegs allow users to seamlessly replace one roller with the SmartRoller. The antenna and controller constantly communicate with at least one transponder moving along the interrogation path, sending a consistent stream of data.
