Small, Compact Transponder for RFID Applications

Nuremberg, Germany. With the new MDS D117 data carrier, the Siemens Industry Automation Division is extending its transponder portfolio to include an unusually small, compact variant (4 x 5 millimeters) complying with a high IP67/IPx9K protection rating.

The new MDS D117 is the latest edition to the Siemens ISO 15693-compliant transponder portfolio, and is particularly suited to tool identification applications and for use with small workpiece carriers. The MDS D117 is fitted with a 112 byte EEPROM(Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory). The transponder is configured for the 13.56 MHz (RF) frequency range and can be used at a read/write distance of 5 millimeters from the reader. The plastic housing of the MDS D117 can be glued flush with the metal, ensuring protection of the transponder from mechanical influences in hostile industrial environments.

The new component is designed to be used at a temperature range of between -25 and +100 degrees Celsius.

The extensive ISO 15693-compliant range of transponders from Siemens can be used with Simatic RF300 RFID systems in the ISO mode, and also with the highly compact Simatic RF200 system. Electronic labels and data carriers are a key control element in logistics chains and production processes. Siemens offers transponders for a wide variety of applications and framework conditions in different sizes, shapes, temperature ranges and protection ratings.
