ReALTrack Parking Lot Management System achieves it by proper designing of the parking zones, standard compliant tracking hardware, managed resource utilization using future ready technologies and best of breed application created with new generation languages with highly customizable and user friendly interfaces.

Reltronics Technologies provides certified hardware which meets all the statutory compliance and all the standard compliance, which helps the customer to get best of solution which meets the present and future requirements. Such RFID hardware comes with ABS/PMMA enclosures which satisfy NEMA standards.

Provided RFID hardware has enclosures constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts; to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt and windblown dust); to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow, splashing water, and hose directed water); and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure. This satisfies NEMA standard.

Apart from that RFID hardware with PMMA enclosure has the following advantages;

Transparency

Clear PMMA exhibits an unsurpassed light transmission of 92%, while glass used for windows does not reach more than 90%. The combination of transparency and weather resistance ensures a long service life for PMMA in many applications, making it an ideal material for all outdoor projects.

Optical Brilliance

Naturally smooth surfaces, edges can be polished to a high gloss. PMMA is quite easy to polish and shows excellent polishing results. This high level of brilliance you can reach with PMMA opens new doors to this material, making it a more attractive material for aesthetical applications. When glossy aspects are needed for a specific part, PMMA can stimulate designers' inspiration and help to do some breakthroughs.

Easy Machining

PMMA sheets allow using all standard machining techniques. You can easily polish, drill, cut and engrave these sheets which results in great aesthetical products and brings also a high flexibility to the machiners.

Weather-ability

PMMA sheets exhibit good mechanical properties. In particular, it is well resistant to weather (wind, rain, hail, etc.)

This key combination of transparency and weather resistance ensures PMMA sheets a long service life for many applications. It makes PMMA sheets an ideal material for all types of outdoor projects. This excellent resistance of PMMA sheets to weather is so high that, Degussa world leader in specialty chemistry and construction chemistry can even provide a ten-year guarantee of its sheets on weather resistance.

UV Resistance

UV has damaging effects on polymers. UV radiation can easily break down the chemical bonds in a polymer which results in cracking, color changes and a loss of physical properties. PMMA naturally exhibits an excellent resistance to UV, much better than PC.

A good UV resistance is a real advantage for all outdoor projects.

 

Technical Support
Reltronics Technologies has the best of RF engineers to set up the RFID network at customer place. Reltronics Technologies has years of expertise in setting up RFID network from small to large and ensuring minimum or no data loss rates.

Reltronics provides each RFID hardware unit (RFID reader, a pair of antenna with AC/DC power unit) with a mounting tube and 3 hose clips, which enable the RFID hardware to be mountable anywhere. RFID hardware also available with joint bracket
for mounting on wall or on ceiling.

Reltronics Technologies provides the RFID hardware with standard compliance to anti collision air protocols, which enables the internal settings to be made in such way that each reader is set to take RFID readings of certain area.

To achieve the high performance with regards to the read and write distance of a tag, it is essential that the tag-antenna design be matched to the tag transponder input impedance, because the return link modulation of the tag transponder uses PSK (Phase Shift Keying).

The main advantages of the PSK are related to

  • Higher SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio)

  • Lower BER (Bit Error Rate)

And result in increased communication distance.

In PSK the information is in the delta of the phase angle, ∆φ; therefore, it is essential to the properly match the antenna to get a maximum ∆φ that can easily be detected by any I/Q demodulator. The return link is always one of the most critical criteria in UHF-RFID and limits the operation range of many application systems.

Moreover ReALTrack Parking Lot Management System has inbuilt application logic which decides the detection of tag from the particular reader at what point of time, as per the data coming from the SmartInstrumentTM. Application logic matches each occurrence of tag transponder detection related with specific time intervals and ascertains the relevance of the data. Accordingly it stores and manages the data.

 

System at work
Read zone of the each RFID hardware can be set using the RFID hardware system features available in the RFID hardware. Once the reading has took of a specific number plate attached with RFID tag, as soon as vehicle approaches the RF zone of the particular RFID hardware, signal of reading specific data sent to SmartInstrumentTM. SmartInstrumentTM processes the given data into XML format and send it to ReALTrack Parking Lot Management System which processes the data and finds exact match to open the command gate. These all processes will not take more than 1-3 seconds.

RFID hardware provided by the Reltronics Technologies is capable of taking 400 tag readings / second and the amount of readings can be adjustable according to the attenuation of RF signals. RFID hardware standard read write range up to 7 meters depends upon the whether conditions.
