Best Practices for RFID Lift Truck System Design

About This Document

This document provides guidelines (rather than rules) for RFID Lift Truck System Design. Design and deployment experience will lead to the development of a design methodology that works best for each particular individual and specific lift truck and lift truck RFID process.

This document includes tips and tricks for installing RFID hardware and cables. These methods will vary depending on how permanent the installation must be. Systems may need to be installed quickly for feasibility analyses or Proof of Concept (POC) work, but must be more permanently mounted for a full rollout of a lift truck system.

Note: Why use the term Lift Truck instead of Fork Lift? Not all lift trucks have fork attachments, but all of them lift something. There are many different types of lift truck attachments, but the fork attachment is most common.
