RFID transponder captures the locking state of cable cars!

Harting has developed an RFID transponder which will electronically detect the state of locking mechanisms on cable cars: a legislative requirement for cable-car operators since 2013.

Until now, the biggest challenge for operators has been to supply the gondola with the power required to operate the monitoring devices. This challenged is addressed in the Harting device by the fact that the RFID transponder is activated via the reading device’s electromagnetic waves and requires no additional source of energy to provide the state of the locking mechanism along with the device ID directly to the control unit.
