Until now, Pepperl+Fuchs' RFID connectivity for Ethernet and PROFIBUS systems was limited to four-head RFID controllers. This was great for large systems because of the high read head density and the advanced diagnostics available from the graphical display and keypad.
Our new one- and two-head RFID controllers have a completely new design. The graphical display was removed to cut costs; the housing is four times smaller for easier mounting, and it can be used in smaller panels. The smaller design is perfect for systems requiring only one or two heads and also offers a more distributed RFID control system for larger installations. Read heads can come back to their own controller rather than be consolidated into four-head controller blocks.
