RFID Conveyor System

TechComp built an RFID control solution for a number of restaurants that use sushi conveying systems. These systems use a PLC along with RFID to track plates as they travel on a conveyor. An HMI interface allows chefs to define and load a menu of items on to the conveyor and track the disposition of the food. Custom built into these systems is a configurable expiration time that rejects plates that have been on the conveyor too long. A point of sale database is used to track the restaurants performance and analyze customer selection using input from the RFID conveyor system.
