RFID livestock automatically identify traceability

1.    Introduction

What is animal identification and traceability system of animal identification and traceability system means to identify individual animals or groups of related to breeding, slaughter and processing establishments to register, animal feeding, transport, slaughter and animal products processing , storage, transport, sales and other relevant information recorded in order to achieve when there is an outbreak or the quality and safety incidents, animal husbandry and animal production, processing, sales and other different links that may exist for effective tracking and traceability, be solved.

Comprehensive SARS outbreak in China in 2003, brought a great loss to our country.   More and more animals and food safety and public safety issues have also been widespread concern in society as a whole. How to manage the animals, do not let the "atypical pneumonia" as people palpitations happen again has been the goal of our relentless efforts.

The eTel RFID for animal identification traceable is based on the development of national standards, "RF animal identification code structure (GB/T20563-2006) animal identification and traceability system, mainly used in animal husbandry, transport, slaughter carried out tracking and monitoring,   When the outbreak, the animals retrospective; health sector through the system to the animal may be infected with the disease retrospectively to determine their ownership relations and history traces. At the same time, the system of animal from birth to slaughter to provide immediate, detailed and reliable data.

The electronic label can adapt to field a variety of environments;

Animal growth, disease, quarantine and other data acquisition and analysis, draw all kinds of precise data;

Analysis of collected data, the implementation of disease warning mechanisms;

Shenzhen eTel advanced ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID technology, RFID (hereinafter referred to as RFID) and the technical advantages of the electronic tag is a non-contact automatic identification technology, automatic target recognition by the RF signal and get relevant data, identify the work without human intervention, can work in a variety of harsh environments. UHF RFID technology has far to read and write distance, high-speed movement of animal identification in the far distance, and can also identify multiple tags, quick and easy to operate.

The eTel livestock RFID traceability systems electronic tag is used in line with international standards IS018000-6C protocol EPC tags, which EPC data encoded according to the GB (the "animal radio frequency identification code structure (GB/T20563-2006)).


2.    Main Function

Automatic recognition: the animal identification code, making the quarantine system handheld devices will be able to easily access to the growth of an animal disease, quarantine conditions.

Efficient traceability:   The whole tracking system throughout the life cycle of the animal, every aspect of the record, and centralized backup in the information management center, such as events, the system will automatically search the event of animal origin, and facilitate management analysis.

Convenience: fully electronic centralized management of data, large amounts of data to find the server to complete, save a lot of manpower and time, making the response to the event to be speed.

Security: The system uses a new generation of RFID tags, the electronic tag is specifically designed for animal identification, fast response time, the average failure rate is low, you can ensure that the label to identify aspects of security, timeliness, and stability, in addition we use high-performance and high fault-tolerant system server, so you can ensure server stability, security and network transmission speed, in order to achieve real-time transmission of the system, ensure the timeliness of the information.

Improve the level of management: centralized management and distributed control; regulate the supervision and management of the epidemic, reducing all unnecessary links, emergencies can reach senior management, making the event can receive timely treatment.

The scalability of the system: taking into account the future trend of development and the promotion of information construction, and system design to facilitate the realization of the expansion of the system.

Animal traceability system is mainly divided into three system management center, the control center, quarantine sub-station. System structure and composition as follows shown in the figure below.

Animal traceability system as a whole structure is divided into three institutional management center is unique in the system is mainly built on the unit in charge of animal husbandry; control center can be more generally established in each region or city and Quarantine Bureau; quarantine sub-station for the system terminal to establish livestock production terminal   Such as the Xinjiang region: Information Management Center in the department of Animal Husbandry Office of Health Inspection and Quarantine of animal anti-prison terminus   Control center in the region or city and Quarantine Bureau of Animal Husbandry Office of Health Inspection and Quarantine departments, quarantine sub-station is built on the farms and slaughter plants. Configured independently of the portable terminal, its purpose is to facilitate the use of staff.

(1) Portable terminal

ET7902 900mhz UHF portable terminal is the hand-held read-write device is a portable and quarantine equipment, upcoming quarantine location of the animal basic data stored in the portable device, handheld device live the user ID allocated (user ID for each slaughterhouse, the numbers of farms or farmers), animals, electronic tag distribution function, and quarantine to complete the data is stored in the handheld device, back to the quarantine sub-station or quarantine station after data back to your computer.

Portable equipment before each use and sub-station or central station communications, in order to obtain the basic data to the quarantine location.

Portable devices with GPRS function, a major event in the alarm module set aside, when the start of the module in case of major events in the handheld software, GPRS feature to automatically start, timely data at the same time back to the quarantine sub-station and control center station information management center.

(2) Quarantine sub-station

Establish a quarantine sub-station in each livestock farms and slaughterhouses, and ET7901 900mhz UHF RFID GPRS reader quarantine sub-station can be established according to the size of farms and slaughterhouses of different sub-station computer center, sub-station to complete the animal electronic label distribution, data entry, quarantine data entry, disease reporting and other functions; owned and handheld devices, data communications capabilities

(3) Control center station (more)

In each region to create a lab, a wireless receiver system and a computer control center. Computer control center responsible for receiving the quarantine sub-station transmission data (such as: cattle born diseases, growth conditions, etc.), the control center for data classification, filtering, and comprehensive analysis, with the allocation of user ID (user ID is a slaughterhouse, the numbers of farms or farmers), animals, electronic tag distribution, data storage, display, recording, printing, statistical functions, and the Area Health Authority Information Centre network.

Save control center under the jurisdiction of the region you want to quarantine the animals, the data of each sub-station simultaneous transmission to the Central Station, Central Station timing transmission analysis of data management center. Encounter major situation the central station transmission data will be synchronized to the management center.

(4) Management Center (the system is unique)

Management center by the relevant departments of the Ministry of Health, the decision-making center of the system, the detection information obtained from the testing center station for analysis, research, and timely management decisions, so that early discovery, early prediction, early treatment of animal disease outbreaks while strengthening the management of the animal from birth to slaughter.
