Press Release Summary:
Containing 2 channels of RFID, Simple RFID Slice is compatible with IP20-rated BL20 non-programmable and programmable gateways, available for use on PROFIBUSÂ®-DP, PROFINET, DeviceNet(TM), Modbus TCP/IP, and EtherNet/IP(TM) networks. Additional RFID slices, as well as traditional discrete and analog I/O slices, may be added to system. Designed with digitized communication, RFID-S allows up to 50 m separation between transceiver and slice without noise induction.
Original Press Release:
Simplify Your RFID Solution with BL20 Modular I/O
Minneapolis, Minn.-March 23, 2009- TURCK has expanded its BL ident RFID product portfolio with the release of a Simple RFID (RFID-S) slice for its BL20 modular I/O system. Each RFID-S slice contains two channels of RFID. Additional RFID slices, as well as traditional discrete and analog I/O slices, may be added to the system, making it the only product on the market that allows this combination on the same node on the network.
This flexible design facilitates the integration of RFID into both new and existing systems. The RFID-S slice does not require special software for integration into a PLC system, further simplifying the entire process. "If you can program a push button to turn on a pilot light," says Nick Clute, product specialist with TURCK, "you can program TURCK's RFID system."
The RFID-S slice is compatible with TURCK's IP 20 rated BL20 non-programmable and programmable gateways, available for use on PROFIBUS®-DP, PROFINET, DeviceNet(TM), Modbus TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP(TM) networks. All RFID channels operate in parallel, so there is no time delay during communication between the tag and the read/write head-optimizing production speeds. The TURCK RFID-S slice is designed with digitized communication, allowing up to a 50-meter separation between the transceiver and slice without noise induction to ensure clear, unobstructed application results.
