CeMAT 2018's lead theme - Connected Supply Chain Solutions - got the global intralogistics industry buzzing and this will speed up the digital networking of value and supply chains. The show's Telematics VIP Lounge gave conbee GmbH the ideal opportunity to demonstrate the interplay between Logistics 4.0 and Industry 4.0 in current and future solutions such as smart auto ID/RFID innovations for optimizing logistics processes, inventories, asset tracking and indoor/outdoor position finding.
Visitors from all over the world were able to discover the potential intralogistics benefits of cutting-edge ultra-low-power radio technologies such as Bluetooth 5.x and LoRaWAN at the conbee GmbH stand. conbee’'s C.A.T. - Conbee. Action. Trigger. - offers service at the touch of a button. This trigger button with LPWAN improves logistics processes in many different scenarios - from container management and warehouse logistics to service calls and process optimization in materials management. It is configurable, incorporates LoRa technology for a range of several miles, boasts a variety of authentication functions, prevents counterfeiting and comes with open interfaces for connecting production planning systems such as ERP or SAP. At pre-defined intervals, it is able to send a "keep alive" signal as well as its ID number and a message adapted to the specific application - a service call or fill level information, for example. A variety of sensors can also be integrated into the trigger for tasks such as recording temperature, brightness or moisture.
