Manure-Processing Equipment Maker Employs NFC

This summer, Nutrient Control Systems (NCS) is using radio frequency identification technology to market its agricultural and industrial waste-handling equipment, including the Cri-Man product line of separators, pumps and mixers. By applying Near Field Communication (NFCRFID tags to the products it sells (initially comprising pumps, mixers and separators on display at trade shows and fairs), the Chambersburg, Pa., company says it will be helping potential users to learn how the systems work in farm operations, and to watch videos and access brochures. In addition, the NCS plans to employ NFC technology later this year to help farmers access operation instructions, or to learn where to order parts or service their machines.

Mobile platform technology company Purple Deck Media, based in Scotland, Pa., provides the NFC tags, as well as software for managing the collected RFID data.
