Fulfilled with the BIS-V RFID controller Balluff The desire of the market for a compact evaluation unit, which allows the simultaneous connection of up to four read / write heads. For this, the user does not have to configure anything and also needs to pay attention to the pin assignment.
Both RF (13,56 MHz) according to ISO 15693 and ISO 14443 as well as LF (125 kHz) read heads can be connected to the front with connectors and are automatically detected. In addition, the RFID controller offers the option of directly connecting IO-Link-capable sensors or actuators.
This results in considerable hardware and installation savings. The controller meets all requirements for an industry-standard version (IP67, metal housing) and will be equipped with Profibus interface as well as with USB as a service interface to the PC. There are many typical fields of application for the intelligent combination of RFID controller and sensor technology. In identification tasks for material flow control in production plants, the user can also benefit from lower hardware usage and lower installation costs, such as conveyor systems in mechanical engineering, assembly lines, overhead monorail systems or in the entire field of intralogistics.
