Abstract: Libramation Inc., a leading provider of RFID automation equipment and technology, announced that North American Construction Group has implemented its RFID Asset Tracking Technology.


Edmonton, AB, October 22, 2009 – Libramation Inc., a leading provider of RFID automation equipment and technology, announced today that North American Construction Group has implemented its RFID Asset Tracking Technology.

With eleven different sites, and equipment worth millions of dollars, North American Construction Group (NACG) must make sure that spare parts are available at any given time. However, having these parts spread out in yards the size of several football fields does not make it easier to find a specific asset instantly.

Effectively managing large volumes of high-­-value assets such as pipes, pipe spools, buckets, heavy equipment parts, cable reels, augers and tools, can be challenging, but when you have 3 feet of snow on the ground, then it almost becomes impossible to find an asset quickly, say’s Carlos Lopez, Field Engineer for Fleet Management/HS&E at NACG. In addition, we hope to install a mobile unit soon on one of our yard vehicles, which will take inventory whenever it roams through the yard. This lets us know instantly if an asset has been re-­-located, so we always have the latest location information in our database.

This all has changed significantly, when NACG was introduced an RFID-­-UHF technology presented by Libramation Inc. of Edmonton, Alberta.

Libramation recommended the IntelliFIND Hand-­-Held unit, which is an agile and flexible RFID and GPS mobile track and locating system that utilizes IDENTEC Solutions proprietary and patented Intelligent Long Range (ILR) technology RFID Tags.

These Beacon tags operate in the UHF frequency range and can be read under a variety of conditions at up to 100m (300 ft). Additionally, ILR beacon technology is available with an optional marker, allowing for extremely granular location determination such as lane discrimination for transportation applications. Designed specifically to operate in all conditions, including expansive areas and harsh environments such as Oilsands construction sites and lay down yards.

NACG decided that this solution will assist them to locate assets very quickly, and reducing the downtime of any equipment or heavy machinery in the field.
