Automatic ice-vending system
What is RFID ice-vending machine system?
This is a system to sell ice, utilizing the RFID system where data communication is made without contact.

Prehistory of introducing RFID
In conventional systems, there were many cases of malfunctioning in reading a magnetic card due to corrosion at the card-reading section by briny air because ice-vending machines were sometimes located near seashore. To eliminate such a defect, RFID system was introduced, wherein the card-reading section can completely be sealed.

Ice is discharged to the slot.

(4) Ice is discharged to the slot.

Effect of introduction
  • Because the data is renewed through non-contact data communication in the ice-vending system using RFID system, it is possible to buy ice only holding up the card even if it is in a purse.
  • Because the data communication is made without contact, the card-reading section can completely be sealed, by which the problem of corrosion at the card-reading section due to briny air was solved.
