Smart labelling for industrial cables using mobile apps connected to the cloud
Structured cabling requires high quality labelling, failure of these labels can be disastrous. In many cases, current solutions have issues with reliability, cost and time taken to install. For our first product, a simple transparent plastic clip, capable of mounting on a range of cable diameters, comes packed with c colour coded tag, which is NFC capable. A smart phone app can then write to this tag with a variety of features including cable type, start and termination points, the installer and device name, reference number, GPS location and PIN protection. This information can then be relayed to the cloud in real time, where it can be processed into spread sheets, data bases, maps....etc. Our next product will contain a flexi-circuit mounted RFID chip and an E-Paper tag. With all the features of the first product, this also contains physically visible E-Paper.
