Chips with a different frequency: why Dettingen’s trash cans will be updated soon

Chips with a different frequency: why Dettingen’s trash cans will be updated soon

The rubbish bins in the Heidenheim district have been equipped with RFID transponders since 1996. This is a technology used to transmit data without contact using radio waves. The chips in the bins tell the receiving device in the garbage truck which owns the bin, so that the amount of garbage can be sent to the correct account. About 30,000 of the remaining junk and organic bins in the area still have old chips running at a frequency of four megahertz. They must be replaced with new chipsets with a frequency of 134 kHz. Dr. explained. Sebastian Meyer, Chairman of the District Waste Management Company, District Waste Management Committee. Since readers are also no longer being made, chips can no longer be read at some point in time, even if they are still working.

Beta test with employees

In July, the district’s waste management company started a pilot project in Dettingen, with three teams of its employees exchanging chips for rubbish cans on Thursdays. Affected families will be notified a week in advance. With the help of this pilot test, they want to know how many tons are affected and whether the chips can be replaced on site. If that doesn’t work, Meyer says, replace the entire barrel.

Norbert Pereska (CDU) asked if the new chips were being bought from the same company or from another. He found it disturbing to abolish an existing and working system. According to Sebastian Meier, there is a second company selling related technology, but its chips are having the problem that RFID transponders will fall out of the boxes. That’s why they decided to go with the same company that made the old 4MHz chips.
