RFID - Radio Frequency Identification

Coded tags are attached to mobile or moving equipment and can be written to, and read by radio frequency (RF) heads even while moving fast or in high temperatures. A favourite with the motor industry, tags can have the entire car or engine specification written in a tag which tells each phase of production what exactly is required e.g. what paint colour should be used in the automated spray booth.

Fast: Write to tags at high application speeds, with minimal read-write time of 0.5 ms per Byte making transport speeds of over 10 m/s are no problem.
High Temperature: standard data carriers operate up to temperatures up to 120 °C, data carriers are also available up to 210 °C.
Durable: Use of state-of-the-art FRAM storage technology allows 1010 write operations and an unlimited number of read operations, tags rarely need replacing
Long Life: At appropriate ambient temperatures all data remains stored on the data carriers for 10 years
Simple Integration:  Standard functions blocks and interfaces for PROFIBUS-DP, DeviceNet™, Ethernet Modbus-TCP, PROFINET IO, EtherNet/IP
Easy Communications: Programmable gateways fast signal processing for PROFIBUS-DP, Ethernet Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP
