Utilities

When Theinsville in Wisconsin, USA sought a better way to locate, map and maintain 1.5 km of underground pipes that supply water to residents, the solution was a RFID marker system for the village main.

Survey data for each marker is hosted on web-based servers was integrated with the village GIS — taking the guesswork out of locating and managing utilities, saving time and money.

Whether it’s pipes and assets below ground, or poles and personnel above, there are RFID devices that will work.

At Omni-ID, our professional, highly-skilled team of specialists has pioneered an extensive portfolio of cost-effective passive RFID tags, specialty labels, IoT sensors and custom-built tracking and monitoring solutions to fit almost any utility application, no matter how challenging the environment.

We’re a market leader in vertical integration and contiuous improvement, guaranteeing manufacturing excellence through testing and quality assurance in every tag or sensor we supply.

Intelligent technology for waste containers

Italian multi-utility Hera Group needed a way to manage assets with an 8500-strong workforce supplying gas, electricity, water and services, and refuse collection/disposal in 181 municipalities.

Tenenga deployed some 200,000 of Omni-ID’s rugged Exo 800 tags on kerbside waste containers with GPS and handheld and vehicle-mounted scanners to monitor and manage collection times and container locations.

Result? Massively improved compliance, service efficiency and effectiveness.

How to make asset management smarter for utilities

CIO Review, in an analysis where it named Omni-ID one of the most promising technology solution providers for utilities.

“Tracking drilling pipes from on shore to off shore locations versus tracking utility poles used by power companies requires a different set of tags and work requirements. By working intimately with our customers, we ensure their complete solution, from tags to readers to software, which is built specifically for them,” he explained.

“Compliance and safety are two vital concerns for utilities companies and each is impaired by the lack of asset visibility throughout the supply chain. By affixing RFID tags, companies can create ‘smart’ assets with the realtime visibility. The assets and equipment can also provide valuable feedback about required maintenance, which is critical to maintain compliance and proper certifications.”

Customer success story

In the age of Covid-19, many organizations are critically rethinking the way they organize their asset management. Clever RFID solutions with the required level of intelligence, including audible alerts, can be developed or even custom-designed from the ground up either as an overlay or a fully integrated system to assist, for example, social distancing.

Omni-ID’s portfolio of award-winning, industrial RFID tags and IoT devices offers a huge range of tagging, tracking, monitoring and alerting options across diverse industry sectors.
