INT300 Mobile AEI Tablet
The INT300 mobile AEI tablet provides a portable option for leveraging railcar RFID tags and automating data collection activities. The INet tablet series is dynamic in its portability, letting you take care of supply chain activities from wherever you are in or out of your facility. Recording car inventories, completing inspection and maintenance forms, taking photos,capturing load/offload information, and more can all be accomplished with a few taps and a scan of an AEI tag.
The INT300’s rear 8MP camera gives users the ability to capture photos of railcars, components, security seals, or anything needing to be associated with that car. Uploading the photo(s) to existing databases or the INet Gateway database can be done via Wifi or cellular connection.
Use case scenarios consistently prove the INT300 series tablet saves time, resources, and significantly reduces inaccuracies commonly found with manual processes.

Introducing Read-Write Functionality
For years, programming AEI tags has been a costly, time-consuming practice that nonetheless is required per AAR regulations in order to keep railcar information up to date and keep North American lines moving safely. With the new INet Scribe tablet, re-programming tags have never been easier. For the first time in the industry, the Scribe provides an option besides the large stationary machine+monitor setup.
The American Association of Railroads’ Rule 63 states that“a car being re-stenciled...must have its transponders replaced or reprogrammed. In order for equipment to have transponders, they must be registered in the UMLER file,” More than ever, it’simportantto have a cost-effective plan ready to replace tags on short notice
In INet’s new patented technology, we’ve made this dream of operators everywhere a reality. Beyond completing data collection activities such as railcar inspections, inventory, photos, etc., the INT300 series allows you to reprogram mounted AEI tags from wherever you have a working Wi-Fi or cellular connection. By utilizing OCR (optical camera recognition) technology, the tablet’s camera reads the railcar stencil and communicates with the UMLER database in order to make the necessary changes on its record. In leveraging this powerful technology, railroads, repair shops, and manufacturers can eliminate the need to order programmed tags at higher prices or take the chance of mounting tags to wrong cars, saving both time and money and further automating existing activities into more efficient practices.
