Press release date: September 6, 2012

Combine low and high frequency read/write heads with I/O in one device

The Balluff BIS V Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system is founded on a new generation of RFID processors that maximize your flexibility by providing a single device for both low frequency 125 KHz and high frequency 13.56 MHz read/write heads with an IO-Link master port. Combining up to four head capability on both frequencies with local analog, valve manifold or I/O access/control, provides a solution you can apply to many types of RFID applications. This can save time and cost using a single processor platform across your application installation base. The BIS V system also allows you to draw on a single processor family with a wide array of read/write head and RFID tag options for both manufacturing and logistics solutions.

The BIS V RFID system offers a higher level of performance than other systems to solve today’s industrial track and trace applications. Designed to maximize performance while improving usability out on the line, the BIS V processor provides a functional display and LED’s making status and setup easier. And a USB service interface makes connection for setup to today’s PC’s simple. The BIS V offers these additional functions:

• Four asynchronous 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz read/write antenna channels
• LCD display with control buttons for setting and displaying the network address and data carrier/tags UID
• An integrated IO-Link master port for connecting discrete or analog I/O, or valve manifolds
• Industrial IP 65 rated metal housing for almost any application environment
• Intelligent power plug option for saving parameters on the device
• Flexible mounting options for hard-point or DIN rail

Typical applications include combining multiple read/write heads with local I/O in tracking and traceability of material or parts in assembly line work in progress (WIP) applications, and inter-logistics in automotive, industrial equipment, electronics, medical and packaging. The BIS V series of processors can provide a single industrial RFID solution across multiple frequencies, standards and network buses, and when combined with onboard I/O capability, promises to be the last processor family you may ever need.
