Connecting RFID to cloud systems such as MindSphere boosts efficiency and quality

The picture shows the Simatic RF600 RFID system.

Linking the RFID system Simatic RF600 to the cloud opens up exciting new scope for the use of data captured from RFID transponders – such as the registration and tracking of containers, pallets or products fitted with an RFID transponder.
The captured data can be analyzed and made available worldwide due to the web-based concept, creating transparency in terms of key performance indicators (KPIs) such as plant availability, utilization of assets or energy-saving potential. Using the MindSphere app concept, customers can be given access to a wide range of information such as RFID-based KPIs. This will allow the targeted optimization of production processes and supply chains with a view to improving efficiency and quality in production, logistics, asset management and other areas. As the basis for applications and data-based Siemens services for the fields of predictive maintenance and energy data, asset and supply chain management, Simatic RF600 and MindSphere are significant components for digitalization.
