RFID in package connec

tor monitors disinfectant dispensing, quality

Colder Products Co. reports that adding a very small read-write RFID tag to the connector on packaged bags of its liquid disinfectant allows them to be recognized by an 13.56-MHz RFID reader in the coupling that mates with the connectors. This universal dispensing coupling (UDCs) is part of a regulated sanitizing system integrated in AmeriSpa Inc.'s combined footbath/chair systems, which are used to deliver pedicures.

Rick Garber, Colder's smart technology business manager, says once the connector and coupling are permanently seated, information is encrypted on the RFID tag that reports and verifies remaining doses. Once the bag is empty, the tag reverts to real-only status.

Colder's RFID tag consists of a Phillips Semiconductor I-Code 1 RFID chip with 64 bytes, of which 8 bytes are read-only serial numbers, 48 bytes are for general-purpose, read-write data, and 8 bytes control access to parts of the chip.

Besides regulating dosing, Garber explains, the UDCs in the sanitizing system in AmerSpa's footbaths also prevent use of counterfeit cleaners, which potentially could lead to contamination and possible infections. He adds the reader in the coupling may even be linked to with higher-level networking, reporting, and ordering functions in the future.

 

An RFID tag and reader in Colder Products鈥?connection system ensure proper disinfectant dosing in AmeriSpa鈥檚 pedicure chairs.
