step by step

pabis - step by step

The core


The focal point of pabis is the transponder chip, which is glued onto the underside of the base of the porcelain. This is what allows the plate to      send information.
The transponder chip is sealed and is unaffected by moisture, can        withstand temperatures of up to 85°C, as well as vibrations and grime - important prerequisites for professional use.

Using a computer and different transmission cables, the kitchen         manager programs antenna sites (called ’readers’) that are                integrated in the serving counters (e.g. of a cafeteria).
Price and
name of each item are stored in every reader.

Counter service


Handing the plate, containing the ordered meal, over to the guest,                    the service staff passes the plate over the reader.
At this point, the transponder chip in the base of the plate is encoded        
using RFID technology: the plate then knows the meal item and the corresponding price.

At self-service lines, the information about the type of food and its                   price is transmitted to the transponder chip as soon as the guest                   takes the porcelain out of the porcelain dispenser. The reader is             located directly in the porcelain dispenser.

Price and product information for proportioned meal items are              encoded in the porcelain before selected by a guest.
The readers are directly integrated in the shelves of the counter.

Beverage service


Glasses can also be fitted with a transponder chip. As soon as                           a guest places the glass under the nozzle for the desired beverage,               the transponder is encoded from below.
The reader is
situated in the drip tray.

Cash register / payment procedure


The guest places the food tray onto the counter of the cash register,           which is also equipped with a reader. The information saved on the              various transponder chips is automatically transmitted to the payment            system. The price information appears in the display.

When the guest swipes
his/her ID card through a card reader, the           payment process is initiated: The sum is debited from his/her ID card           and the register prints out a receipt, listing all the different items and          prices separately, as well as the total price of the meal.

As soon as the payment process begins, the reader automatically           erases all information from the transponder chips on the tray.
By then, the porcelain is ready to be used again.
