RFID system to be featured at PLASA London 2014
An RFID system from HARTING is to be featured at PLASA London 2014. The Ha-VIS RFID system can be applied for improved asset management in the theatre and touring environment. By combining rugged, high-performance RFID readers with powerful data pre-processing, the system ensures high-speed data transmission and optimum dynamic network performance.
To aid the integration of the RFID transponding functions, all of the readers provide UHF technology as a standard feature. Their rugged design and construction allows them to be used in a wide range of industrial environments, including mounting on metal surfaces.
HARTING will also exhibit the Han Hood Link, a locking system that speeds up cable-to-cable connection. This is achieved by allowing the connection of two standard HARTING 16B hoods, while simultaneously reaching an IP 65 degree of protection. Made from a resistant elastomer, the locking system provides protection against external mechanical forces, as well as resistance to oils and gases. When used in conjunction with a specially contoured design, the system achieves locking and sealing in a single action.
As it minimises the risk of connectors falling from heights and the associated damage to the locking device on impact, this locking element is particularly useful in concert and stage installations.
Ethernet switches for applications in theatre/concert lighting and automation networking are also to be featured at the PLASA event. These can be built into customised control and junction boxes, providing theatres or concert event installers with a useful box-build assembly service backed up by a high level of expertise and advice of on-site integrated system connectivity.
