To use the Lading Faraday Cage, a company must first switch from standard labels to RFID labels. RFID, or radio frequency identification, labels emit a unique signal when in range of an antenna that can be used in conjunction with, or in place of, barcodes.
Inside the Lading Faraday Cage are RFID antennas that, when prompted, read the signals of the boxes within range and capture their unique information. A Faraday Cage is necessary to ensure that only the boxes on a pallet, the ones inside the cage, are counted. Without the Faraday Cage, the accuracy of the count would be compromised.
Scanning a pallet with the Lading Faraday Cage takes about ten seconds and the total process from opening the door of the cage to pulling the pallet out takes about a minute.
