The use of small RFID tags on company uniforms, hotel and hospital outfits is an excellent option for industrial laundries, which need to identify each item automatically. These tags support washing and handling of parts at various stages of an industrial laundry and uniquely identify them. Specially designed readers allow the reading of one or more parts in tube or panel antennas, interconnected to the control system. Thus, each washing step is monitored in real time under the most adverse conditions that this operation requires.
