Integro's latest heavy-duty portable power equipment is Industrial IoT-ready, thanks to source-tagging with embeddable Xerafy RFID.
With its Paramount Kit, Integro LLC, a leader in power distribution solutions, brings Industrial IoT innovation to portable power and other industries by making it possible to reliably read an RFID tag from portable power equipment. Hubbell, a world leader in electrical devices, is also launching its line of wiring devices with embeddable Xerafy RFID tags in its equipment. It will offer its full range of wiring devices from 15A to 400A with this technology.
Integro is a thermoplastic and rubber molder of custom electrical cable assemblies, with its products used in Airfield Lighting, Shipbuilding, Mining, Power Utility, Steel Fabrication, Portable Power and LED Lighting markets. The company holds two specific patents to read RFID tags that are molded into electrical assets for inventory management purposes. The tags are permanently molded into electrical connectors to ensure they will not become dislodged or damaged in the roughest environments where operating conditions require safety and reliability.
“We feel the Integro system of molding permanent RFID tags into electrical assets and our custom-designed inventory management programs are ideal for heavy industrial and electrical markets,” said John Bogart, President of Integro.
Integro selected Xerafy’s PICO On after some comprehensive product evaluations, which focused on read-range and size. Integro’s conclusion: “Xerafy’s PICO On RFID tags offer the best performance-to-size ratio available that withstands harsh or hazardous environments,” said John Bogart.
