RFID systems with various read/write distances and resulting frequency ranges are finding increasing use in modern production and assembly plants.
Low-frequency, all-metal transponders from Contrinex are resistant to metal chips, dirt, alkaline cleaning agents and hot water.
Due to its compact rectangular design and the 15 cm long connection cable with an M12 connector, the TB-Q08 is particularly suitable for use in restricted mounting conditions, such as in small assembly and transport lines.
The great advantage and, simultaneously, the challenge of RFID technolgy in logistics is that large numbers of containers can be read at the same time and nearby tags must not be allowed to interfere.
The Q175 compact UHF RFID read/write head is designed to communicate with multiple data carriers, using both HF and UHF RFID technologies.
The IMX-2000 industrial mobile computing solution includes integrated near field communication (NFC) capability, which replaces RFID for higher compatibility, better support for more RF tags and wider range of applications.
Antennas that are capable of transmitting radio waves turn components into intelligent objects. Researchers have now found a way to embed these antennas in fibre composites. As a result, the technology also works with carbon and glass fibres.
Siemens is strengthening its RFID range in the UHF range with a range of products including antennas, a mobile reader as well as heat-resistant, compact data carriers in the Smart Label format, suitable for harsh environments.
The Ha-VIS RF-R200 RFID reader is a mid-range reader that has been optimised for read ranges up to 2 m.
Turck is expanding its range of RFID handheld devices with software that can be specifically tailored to the requirements of individual users.
The ifm efector RFID system for production and conveying has a robust evaluation unit equipped with an integrated Profibus DP interface and a web server.
The Balluff BIS-V RFID controller is a compact evaluation unit that enables the simultaneous connection of up to four read/write heads.
The 54 cm-long RFID F97 reading head has a continuous read range along its entire length. This means that tags can be reliably read, despite large tolerances in the position on the conveyor, and at speeds of up to 10 m/s.
Turck’s BL67 modular distributed I/O system is now equipped with a Simple RFID (RFID-S) slice that is compatible with the company’s BL ident RFID product line. The RFID-S includes two channels of RFID per slice and up to four slices may be added to each BL67 node - resulting in up to eight channels of RFID per node.
