The multiprotocol devices bring data from RFID read/write heads in the HF and UHF frequency band to the controller via PROFINET, EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP. Due to their ability to connect actuators and sensors to RFID read/write heads simultaneously, the block modules are a good choice for retrofitting RFID applications. Additionally, thanks to their high degree of protection, cabinets are unnecessary and keep the wiring effort at a minimum, saving users time and money. The module eliminates complex PLC integration with its conventionally mapped RFID data. In addition to two RFID ports, the interface offers four configurable digital I/O points for external devices. Despite its compact design, with a width of only 32 mm, the unit offers highly efficient performance. The detection of over 100 UHF tags can be carried out just as quickly and easily as the reading and writing of 8-kilobyte HF tags. The power supply and network connection are implemented via M8 connectors.
