Inotec UK has introduced a reusable RFID tag which not only carries data but is also programmable to measure temperature profiles or out-of-range extremes over a period of time. The fully programmable KSW TempSense tag records temperatures from -15°C to +50°C in the critical -5°C to +10°C food and drugs transport range. Operating at the established 13.56MHz frequency, the ISO 15693-approved tag also allows 2Kbits of writeable information to be remotely read and written multiple times over an expected 18- to 24-month life cycle.

James Hall & Co (Southport) says its investment in voice picking is already exceeding expectations with picking errors virtually eliminated in the frozen foods section. Preston-based James Hall, as SPAR wholesaler for the North-west, serves some 460 retailers across an area extending from North Wales to the Humber in the south and the Scottish border in the north. Hall’s latest investment is in an 80 user Voice Directed Picking for its Preston regional distribution centre. Business Computer Projects (BCP) supplied the full solution, including all hardware, software and services.
