Press Release Summary:
The IQ-Sense optoelectronic and ultrasonic sensors have been integrated into the Moby-P RFID system. Sensors are individually parameterized simultaneously with production process to provide parameter, production and diagnostics data. Teach-in function copies the values set on a sensor to other sensors, while system diagnostics finds faults such as open-circuit, short-circuit or sensor failure. Anti-interference function prevents mutual influencing of sensors.

Flexible Identification Using Sensors
The IQ-Sense optoelectronic and ultrasonic sensors have been integrated by Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) into the Moby-P RFID system (radio frequency identification). Sensors permit identification solutions to be implemented which are far more flexible than with conventional read-only transponders. Sensors are parameterized individually and at the same time as the
production process, and provide more information, for example parameter, production and diagnostics data.
Intelli-Teach functions are used to parameterize all functions of the IQ-Sense sensors directly from the Moby-P system. To save time, the teach-in function copies the values set on a sensor to other sensors. Parameters can be modified from the Moby-P, thus
adapting the respective sensors to the current production batch.
When replacing sensors during operation (hot swapping), all settings are automatically transferred to the new sensor. A further advantage is the automatic system diagnostics
for faults such as open-circuit, short-circuit or sensor failure. The IQ-Sense features are rounded off by an integral alignment aid and the anti-interference function which
prevents mutual influencing of the sensors.
