HID Global, in partnership with GE Hydro and Asygn, has developed a highly intelligent and robust RFID TAG solution that allows customers in the renewable energy sector to optimize availability and prevent unplanned outages. The TAG’s rugged design presents opportunities in applications with industrial-grade requirements. Located in severe environments, hydropower installations typically have aging connections between the rotor poles, which can exhibit drastic temperature rises and cause unplanned failures in production, among other challenges. In order to measure temperatures, deformation and improve monitoring reliably, GE Hydro required both an antenna and a sensor chip embedded into a rugged TAG that would not deform or fail during equipment operation.

The Federal Communication said this in August 2019 in describing the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), also known as analog copper-wire phone lines or plain old telephone service (POTS). POTS is reaching retirement age after a very long run, starting on March 10, 1876, with Alexander Graham Bell famously barking, “Mr. Watson, come here, I want you,” to his assistant. After almost 150 years, it’s no surprise that other technologies –primarily mobile networks and voice over internal protocol, or VoIP, phone service– have eliminated the need for POTS infrastructure.
