Example of container and paper board container handling: Use of ISO tags
Containers of varying sizes are conveyed to picking workstations in a delivery center. There,
the individual goods are removed and packed in cartons according to the delivery note.
These cartons are marked with low-cost transponder labels and sorted to small or large
packaging workstations (according to the delivery note) by being guided or transported via
the corresponding conveyor system. The containers are marked using the MDS D100 ISO
Advantages at a glance:
● Decision points in the conveyor system can be installed in a more favorable way
● Different sizes of containers with different depths can be identified due to the range
● In contrast to bar codes, tags can also be written to
● Different types of tags can be processed using one and the same reader
Characteristics of the scenario
In this example scenario, containers of varying sizes are conveyed on a conveyor system.
Only the unique identification number (8 bytes) is read. The containers to be picked are
sorted to the corresponding workstations. The maximum transport speed is 1.0 m/s.
