Gates RFID SystemTo quickly and accurately store hose assembly data in the field an RFID (radio frequency product identification) system is now available from Gates. Using this technology, hose assembly information can easily be accessed via personnel are able to retrieve the data using radio waves. The information can then be read onsite or synchronised with a database stored on a PC.

When a hose assembly needs to be repaired or replaced, service personnel can scan the tag to gather the information required. This is then compared with the hose database and the proper assembly can be easily fabricated or ordered. The RFID system helps mobile equipment operators and fleet managers minimise downtime and maximise equipment usage, productivity and revenues.
