Zebra RS5100 Bluetooth Ring Scanner - Retail Application

Small, yet versatile – Zebra RS5100 Single Finger Bluetooth Ring Scanner

Handsfree scanners are the next-generation wearable devices engaging workers and enabling maximized efficiency. Furthermore, the minimal design creates exceptional experiences in customer-facing areas, as well as in the warehouse.

Zebra’s new RS5100 Single Finger Bluetooth Ring Scanner combines versatility and features to offer the best-in-class benefits when it comes to productivity wearables.

Point-and-shoot scanning simplicity

The RS5100 finger scanner takes the ease-of-use and manageability to a new level.

This rugged, yet comfortable device, features two scanning options. The SE4710 delivers high-performance scanning with red illumination and orange LED aiming spot. The global shutter sensor and high-end lens in the SE4770 offer high-performance scanning, and superior motion tolerance, ideal for intensive scanning applications. The SE4770’s crisp red laser cross-hair aimer is available with white or red illumination.

Both scanning engines enable your workforce to quickly and accurately capture virtually any barcode. The PRZM Intelligent Imaging, a megapixel sensor, and Zebra’s superior algorithm help your workers near-instantly scan damaged, dirty, or poorly printed 1D and 2D barcodes.

Ensuring continuity in operations for enterprises of all levels

The technology behind the RS5100 offers a solution to one of the realities in warehouse operations: electrostatic discharge. Concrete floors often destroy sensitive electronics.

Thus, Zebra’s RS5100 was specifically built to surpass competitors, by handling higher levels of electrostatic discharge, making it a safe long-term wearable choice.

As with any product coming from the world-leading technology provider, Zebra, durability is a key feature.

RS5100 was designed to resist countless drops, bumps or even high-pressure water flows. Compared to other finger scanners on the market, it’s not using a hook-and-loop fastener. Instead, a metal buckle and nylon straps make sure that the scanner is cost-effective for any business, allowing several years of usage.

A lower Total Cost of Ownership is also easier to achieve, thanks to the rechargeable battery. And there’s a choice here too. The standard battery lasts for 12 hours or 14,400 scans on a single charge. The extended PowerPrecision+ battery is meant for colder environments and longer shifts.

To gain full control of the wearable’s battery lifetime, workers can view and manage notifications in the device’s PowerPrecision Console.

The RS5100 single finger scanner meets all expectations in high-volume and time-sensitive operations. The trigger assembly is removable and swappable, and each of its elements can be replaced on-site.

For the backroom cost-efficiency and time management, Zebra has designed the ShareCradles that can charge 20 RS5100 ring scanners or 40 RS5100 batteries.

The RS5100 – mobile workers’ favorite in usability and design

Unlike other finger scanners, Zebra’s RS5100 is very small, which makes it comfortable to wear throughout the day. Workers can choose between the right and the left-hand placement, or they can wear it on a lanyard. Either way, the risk of losing this finger scanner is greatly reduced.

The RS5100 is also very precise in scanning, especially in tight areas. The sensor calculates a bigger “sweet spot” during barcode recognition, to make scanning a lot faster and accurate.

It also helps mobile workers easily identify the flow of the operations – the LED illumination indicates the direction in which a worker needs to go next.

The Bluetooth technology built-in the RS5100 single finger scanners ensures compatibility with virtually any other Zebra enterprise-class mobile device. It also features NFC for pairing with other NFC-ready Zebra devices, saving important operational time.

Business benefits

  • Faster operations, with every time capture or barcodes
  • Simplified mobility deployment (by using the same ring scanner across all operations levels)
  • Increased productivity, more scannings performed per hour
  • A best-in-class rugged design built to last for years
  • High-capacity flexible ShareCradles, minimizing devices’ management time and maintenance

Panasonic - Tableta robustă Toughpad M1

3 pași de urmat în automatizarea proceselor de mentenanță a echipamentelor din producție

Termenul Industry 4.0 apare tot mai des în dezbaterile despre viitorul companiilor românești din industrie. Se vorbește despre cum ar trebui făcută industrializarea 4.0, despre flexibilitatea ei și impactul major asupra performanței și profitului.

În practică însă, lucrurile sunt diferite. Automatizarea, ca prim pas către trecerea la digitalizarea producției, se estimează că se va situa la cca 50% din sectorul productiv abia în 2023. Costurile și teama de schimbare sunt o explicație pentru această cifră.

Soluția poate veni doar dintr-o implementare accelerată a conceptului Industry 4.0, iar prima alegere logică o reprezintă automatizarea proceselor și a echipamentelor din fabrică.

Urmărind experiența companiilor care au făcut primii pași spre automatizare, am descoperit că cea mai rapidă schimbare se obține prin automatizarea proceselor de mentenanța a echipamentelor și mașinilor din producție.

Iată cum poți automatiza aceste procese în 3 pași:

  1. Evaluează nevoia de automatizare a proceselor de mentenanță a echipamentelor

Te-ai întrebat, vreodată, cum a devenit o zi obișnuită într-o unitate de producție care nu beneficiază de automatizări? Un coșmar! Experimentat probabil de toți cei care au trecut prin oprirea producției. Dacă te regăsești printre ei, înseamnă că te-ai lovit cel puțin o dată de:

  • întreruperi în fluxul tehnologic din cauza unei reparații care nu a fost făcută la timp
  • materii prime sau piese de schimb lipsă într-un moment critic al fazei de producție, pentru că managerul de aprovizionare nu a primit corect necesarul pe fiecare secție a unității de producție
  • întârzierea unei reparații pentru că tehnicianul nu a avut la dispoziție fișa echipamentului, cu istoricul detaliat al reparațiilor anterioare etc.

O zi ideală ar putea fi descrisă prin funcționarea în parametri optimi a fiecărui echipament, continuitate în procesele de fabricație, productivitate crescută, costuri reduse și manageri mulțumiți de rezultate.

  1. Identifică soluția potrivită pentru automatizare (software și hardware)

Analiza internă a proceselor este punctul de plecare în alegerea soluției care te va ajuta să obții productivitate crescută, reducerea costurilor asociate operațiunilor de mentenanță și un impact pozitiv în indicatorii financiari.

Pe partea de software, maximul de beneficii din automatizare îl poți obține cu o soluție construită să:

  • se integreze rapid cu toate sistemele funcționale din fabrică, indiferent că este vorba de PLC-uri, sisteme de planificare a resurselor sau a producției efective
  • permită planificarea reparațiilor, programarea pe zile de lucru și echipe și stabilirea corectă a necesarului de piese de schimb
  • ofere instrumente simple de înregistrare a parametrilor de operare ai utilajelor și istoricul de reparații
  • elimine erorile umane și să reducă necesarul de documentație scrisă din procesele de mentenanță
  • fie accesibilă 24/7 și interconectabilă cu orice terminal mobil utilizat de către tehnicienii sau inginerii de mentenanță
  • poată fi adaptată oricând: unor noi echipamente, noi linii de producție, cerințelor unor noi piețe de desfacere

Pe partea de hardware poți opta pentru o tabletă robustă, cu funcționalități specifice mediului de producție. Însă nu toate tabletele dedicate mediului industrial oferă fiabilitate și robustețe. Panasonic este recunoscut deja pentru tabletele și laptopurile TOUGHBOOK rezistente la praf, apă și utilizare îndelungată în condiții extreme.

Tehnicienii de mentenanță pot urmări mai ușor sarcinile care le sunt atribuite, își pot planifica reparațiile sau necesarul de piese de schimb și vor reduce timpul alocat fiecărei reparații cu ajutorul unei tablete de ultimă generație TOUGHBOOK M1.

O tabletă cu care echipa mobilă poate să acceseze în timp real inventarul și locația în depozit a produselor finite sau să ruleze diagnosticul unui echipament doar prin conectarea la acesta, crescând deci eficiența angajaților, își va amortiza mai rapid costurile investiției.

  1. Implementează soluția și avansează către digitalizarea întregii activități

Introducerea soluției de automatizare a proceselor de mentenanță durează diferit de la o companie la alta, în funcție de specificul și dimensiunea activității. Odată finalizată, ea va permite îmbunătățirea și automatizarea și a altor procese din fabrică.

În plus, digitalizarea și robotizarea – ca parte a conceptului Industry 4.0 – se vor face mult mai simplu, pe o structură de procese automatizate funcționale. Strategia de investiții va putea fi gândită mai bine, sustenabil, iar adaptarea la dinamicitatea pieței va fi mai facilă.

Ca orice altă schimbare, nici aceasta va fi ușoară, dar este obligatorie pentru orice companie care vrea să rămână competitivă și profitabilă.

Îți dorești să implementezi o aplicație pentru mentenanța echipamentelor din producție și nu știi de unde să începi?

In state of emergency, coordination of the Intervention teams is key to minimize loss of lives and assets

Whether responding to an emergency or everyday service situation, the amount of coordination required between responders – be it evacuating a building on fire or trying to restore order after a disaster – requires investment in quality mobile communications systems.

Imagine a fire started in a building which is close a network of gas pipes fueling a whole neighborhood. When the fire intervention team will get immediate information from utility company about the location of the gas pipes, not only will they avoid further disaster unfolding but will allow the gas service to be restored much faster.

Local public safety departments must create and should be able to access dedicated public safety networks with “priority and pre-emption” status every day of the year – for regular police, fire and EMS response, and when tackling other natural disasters. When regular networks go down, it is critical to keep law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) connected to one another.

This is why it is your responsibility – as the agency lead, police or fire chief, IT director, field technician supervisor or perhaps procurement official – to ensure that every “responder” you dispatch to a call will have a mobile computer that will work no matter what and will be connected with operation coordinators. It is also your job to ensure your organization can stay in sync with other responding agencies, whether via voice communications or back-end data systems. Dedicated public safety networks and rugged mobile devices that are certified to work on those networks – and built to last in emergency situations – are certainly essential to any critical communications strategy.

Since public sector organizations don’t compete with one another, you can engage in, and greatly benefit from, collaborative procurement!

PUBLIC SECTOR AGENCIES SHOULD SYNC UP THEIR MOBILITY STRATEGIES TO ENSURE PROPER COORDINATION and CONTRUL DURING EMERGENCY INTERVENTIONS FOR REDUCING SAFETY HAZARDS

Just think how joint response scenarios could increase the accuracy of emergency response tracking, reduce risks and streamline command and control processes!

“Can you hear me now?” is a question a responder should never ask, especially not in the middle of an emergency response or in the wake of a natural disaster.

Forward thinking public and private organizations can jointly plan and execute infrastructure enhancements or emergency response initiatives to mitigate life-threatening situations. Such partnerships are already a norm in advanced economies where fire, police and rescue units are using this industry-first digital solution to improve coordination of on-scene resources and increase first responder accountability and incident reporting. Not only do such solutions help the rescue efforts, but also save important costs by ensuring better damage control and restoring order faster.

WE BRING YOU BEST IN CLASS MOBILITY SOLUTIONS WITH CERTIFIED< HIGH GRADE RUGGED EQUIPMENT TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF MANAGING INTERVENTIONS< BENEFITTING FROM ORCHESTRATED APPROACH AND SEAMLESS COMMUNICATION.

The rugged equipment is highly reliable as it is designed to work in heavily moisture conditions, dust, vibrations, extreme temperatures and provide daylight-readable touch screens.

Additional to the wearable or auto-mounted rugged equipment, a complete mobile kit for interventions can greatly benefit from the use of drones which capture video footage overhead and offer real-time guidance to mobile device-equipped responders on the ground. They are unarguably effective for public safety surveillance, comprehensive situational assessment, locating of victims and even delivering aid.

Just imagine how valuable such equipment can be mountain rescuers, forest rangers, firefighters, police chase and more, in almost daily situations when it is critical to plan and organize response immediately.

The concerted and ongoing efforts behind the scenes, far in advance of any emergency, reduce the risk of chaos and protect lives. And the communication technology decisions made today ensure that your hometown’s emergency response strategy can be executed according to plan if a situation were to arise tomorrow.

The challenge for public safety and utility organizations – as first and second responders – is to review the emergency response plans focusing on the communication strategy.

It is your joint responsability to equip the intervention teams with the right technologies on hand to make sure that you can ensure coordination and maintain communications with them and the co-participants at all times. It is up to you to ensure that communication can flow even if traditional mobile networks go down.

We help you engineer the cooperation plan that will work as it’s supposed to. We’ll bring you international experience and top of the line solutions to ensure your emergency response plans and your services work as they’re designed to when unwanted situations arise.

Tobacco Products Directive: You have to comply with the TPD or risk facing financial consequences

As of May 20, 2019, all organizations within the tobacco distribution chain must ensure that their operations comply with the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) or risk facing financial and business consequences. The EU Directive is designed to stop the sale of counterfeited tobacco products and ensure that tax revenues are collected and requires all tobacco stakeholders to be able to track and trace the movement of tobacco products to the point of sale to consumer.

Under the traceability system:

  • All unit packets of tobacco products must be marked with the unique identifier
  • Relevant economic operators (namely tobacco supply chain operators) involved in tobacco trade will be required to record the movements of these packets throughout the supply chain and transmit the related information to a European Data Repository
  • The data will then be made accessible to the authorities of EU countries and to the European Commission for enforcement purposes.

To help you comply to the TPD Directive, Smart ID Dynamics offers you Smart.Tracing – a complete solution intended for wholesalers and retailers of tobacco products which aim to comply with the requirements of the European Directive.

The solution consists of:

  1. Durable, hand held mobile devices from leading provider Zebra, capable of reading the required codes (e.g. dot code, data matrix, linear bar code).
  2. Robust Software Application – a combination of intelligent software, applications and utilities to allow economic operators to identify products and packaging, check their validity, record the business process step and transmit the data to the relevant European data-repositories. The solution is multilingual and is comprised of the following modules:

The BackOffice Module (BO) – provides administration, configuration and information functionality about the operations performed;

The FrontOffice (FO) module – the software application that communicates with the mobile terminals within the system;

The application can integrate with your existing systems and can exchange data with the help of web services, text files or databases.

The Smart.Track and Trace is the optimal solution for the challenges generated by the TPD, as it intervenes in the key points of the processes regulated by the norm.

Get in touch and allow us to lead you through the path of compliance with Europen Tobacco Product Directive.

How do you respond to the challenges of the Omnichannel?

With 41% of consumers using two or more channels during purchase process, achieving flawless fulfillment has become more of a challenge than ever.

Businesses are trying to embrace increasing volume, rising velocity and variation coming from the different channels and optimize order delivery to customers.

That always-connected, tech-savvy shopper expects a seamless, faster purchasing journey, whether she’s buying online and picking up in store or wants her merchandise delivered in two hours to her door.

 

E-commerce is driving transformational change end to end in the supply chain: manufacturers, wholesalers and retails are increasingly collaborating out of necessity to meet the demands. To the manufacturer it is an opportunity for true innovation – now they can introduce new channel.

How can retailers effectively compete and be more efficient in terms of shifting inventory?

How can manufacturers be more efficient in leveraging their own brand as well as continue their partnership with the brick and mortar retailers?

How can they thrive in a market that has essentially been disrupted at it’s core?

 

With e-commerce currently accounting for 15-20% globally (or 30-40% in the developed markets), complete digital transformation of the supply chain that addresses key pain points is imminent.
