TURCK, represented by Micromax , has introduced a radio frequency identification (RFID) system for use in harsh industrial environments.
The "Balogh distributed by Turck" RFID system not only tracks products, but also manages information throughout the process.
A system typically consists of tags, transceivers, controllers and cordsets. The controller is the link between the user’s control or logic system (PLC or PC) and the transceiver/tag communication.
Whether an application calls for read only or read/write, "on-the-fly" or static transmission, a controller and transceiver/tag combination can be mixed and matched to fit the need.
The controllers are available for connection to various computer, controller, and bus system interfaces. They provide absolute data security while acting as an interface to the host system.
Some of the interfaces available are as follows: SLC Backplane, DeviceNet, ControlNet, Profibus DP, Genius, Interbus-S, ISA PC-Bus, and Ethernet IP.
A variety of serial, parallel, and stand-alone controllers are also available.
