EMS Releases New Controller

Escort Memory Systems (EMS) is proud to announce the release of the first High-Frequency, Multi-protocol RFID Controller; the HF-0405. The HF-0405 features include a compact design with an integrated antenna and the ability to read multiple tag protocols operating at 13.56MHz. This controller reads EMS' HMS and LRP series tags (ISO14443A/B, ISO15693, and ICODE 1) with a read range of up to 100mm.

The HF-0405 is a compact 40 X 50mm controller with 8-LEDs. These brightly lit LEDs indicate the reader's communication status and address on the network. This controller is perfect for data capture in Material Handling and Work-in-Progress applications. The HF-0405's IP67 NEMA rating makes it ideal for Food Processing, Meat Processing, Automotive, Pharmaceutical and
Electronic industries. The controller's M12 style connector provides quick connectivity for power and data communication. The controller comes with a mounting bracket which allows easy
installation in tight corners or alongside conveyers.

The HF-0405 is available in three models: HF-0405-232-01 (RS232); HF-0405-422-01 (RS422) and HF-0405-485-01 (RS485 with multi-drop functionality).

EMS is also proud to introduce the GWY-01-TCP-01 (Gateway). The Gateway is used with the HF-0405-485-01 to create a multi-drop network of controllers. Each Gateway supports up to 16 controllers in 'Subnet16'(TM) architecture. One important feature of the Gateway is the Ethernet output to the host PC or PLC. Users can communicate directly to each individual controller on the network through the Gateway using TCP/IP protocol.
Connectivity to the network using TCP/IP allows real-time
visibility of the network for remote diagnostics and
firmware upgrades.
