On November 16, 2022, we were invited to attend the Hi-Tech Fair in China Shenzhen. It is currently the largest and most influential technology event in China. The fair showcased new technology products such as environmental protection and new energy. The one I am more interested in is IOTE. Next, I will introduce you to the information on 2022 IOTE Shenzhen.

What is IOTE?

IOTE stands for Internet of Things Exhibition. It was created in June 2009. It is one of the earliest and largest IOTE exhibitions created in the world. It has held the largest exhibition of more than 70,000 square meters. The number of exhibitors from all over the world even reaches 100,000+ every year.

IOTE covers the IoT industry is also very wide. It covers the whole aspect from sensing and transmission to platform and application. It is also fully supported by famous companies such as Huawei, Haier, Yuanwang Valley, Microsoft, etc.

IOTE has successfully held 17 international IoT exhibitions since its establishment. It is mainly held in Shenzhen, China, and Shanghai, China. During the holding period, several IoT summits about smart homes and other leading industry trends will also be held. You may gain a lot by attending this exhibition.

First, we introduce one of our common exhibits – RFID wristbands. RFID wristband is a kind of intelligent RF-shaped card worn on the wrist. It is beautiful and comfortable to wear and is one of the forms of ticket presentation for many companies holding events. These wristbands are usually made of safe and environmentally friendly silicone. It also allows you to customize it with an exclusive pattern or company logo.

UHF ABS Metal Resistant Tags

The next is the uniquely shaped UHF ABS metal-resistant label. These RFID-resistant tags have different characteristics depending on the material used. Most of them are resistant to sunlight, water, heat, and impact. You can apply it to metal equipment, valuable machines, and products. It is one of the preferred tracking tags for companies with many metal surface assets.

UHF Flexible Metal Resistant Labels

This type of tag with textile fibers is the RFID washing tag. RFID Wash Tag is a non-woven fabric-based RFID tag. The tag can accept more than 200 wash or dry cleaning cycles. RFID laundry tags are widely used in hotels, hospitals, factories, and other clothing tracking. The tag can help you achieve fast sorting, inventory, and other work processes, thus improving the efficiency of your employees.

RFID Animal Tag

It is a tag developed for livestock management. RFID Animal Tag can track the whole life cycle of the animal. Most RFID animal tags are small in size, easy to inject, and have a non-slip surface.

RFID animal tags have improved the level of livestock management for people. The use of the tag also promotes the development of smart agriculture. You can use RFID animal tags to track the health status of animals for timely control.

RFID Tag Detection Equipment

RFID Tester

The next large device that comes into view is called the RFID tester. RFID tester is mainly used to check an RFID reader’s performance quickly. The RFID tester can detect whether the tag is in the required operating frequency range in real-time. The test results you can view in the computer software terminal. Using an RFID tester will greatly improve your yield. The RFID tester is an excellent tool to help you automate your production line.

RFID Readers

Once we turned around, we came to the RFID reader area. The RFID reader is used by cooperating with RFID tag and management software applications. This reader mainly uses radio frequency identification technology. It can achieve the purpose of collecting, transmitting, and communicating electronic tag information. The RFID reader has the characteristics of long reading and writing distance and long service life. There are two types of common RFID readers: fixed and mobile.

Fixed RFID reader antenna can be external while also allowing built-in. Compared with handheld RFID readers, it has certain advantages in reading distance and range. Fixed readers are suitable for forklift access management and access doors.

Mobile readers are more convenient. The reader can be used handheld or mounted on a vehicle.

Fixed Industrial Reader

This machine, operating at high speed, is called a stationary industrial reader. The industrial reader has excellent barcode reading capability. It can easily read even dynamic barcodes in high-speed lines. You can use the reader to detect the duplication of printed barcodes automatically. With this reader, you don’t have to worry about duplicate barcodes on your products.

You can use the fixed industrial code reader in 3C electronics and other automation fields. This reader is one of the indispensable pieces of equipment for smart factories.

RFID Vertical Checkout Counter

It is a machine that you may have seen in your life. This stand-up checkout machine has an RFID chip. You can use it for express checkout. It takes much less checkout time than traditional queue checkout. You can use it to batch-read, scan, and settle product labels.

Customers can check out by themselves without the help of staff. After the customer has finished shopping, they place the product on the checkout counter. The checkout counter will display information about the product and prompt the customer for the amount spent. After completing the transaction, the back office will mark the item as sold in the database. The RFID device at the counter will no longer track the item. Customers can directly take the settled goods out of the store for use.

It is an excellent operation to apply RFID vertical cash register. It enables staff to provide better value-added services to customers. The checkout counter is suitable for use in libraries, supermarkets, shopping malls, and other life scenarios.

Smart Life

It is a scenario where smart devices are applied to retail. Smart retailing is one of the technological combinations of IoT IoT and AI artificial intelligence. It is crucial to converting the traditional retail model to smart retail. This retail model can enhance the convenience of shopping for consumers. Zion Market Research Company has conducted a study on “smart retailing.” The results of this study show that smart retail is an unstoppable trend. The global smart retail market was valued at $9.83 billion in 2017. It is estimated to climb to $43.76 billion by the end of 2024.

In addition, introducing smart devices in retail stores can attract people to visit. Retail stores use RFID tags to update product inventory and marketing information instantly. Consumers can also reduce queue times and check out faster with RFID self-checkout machines. Isn’t this convenient and smart way of shopping interesting?
