The IDpro platform from SICK is an innovative cross technology platform for auto ID technologies that are developed and produced under one umbrella, and created for continuous operator interfaces, process interfaces and connection options.
SICK’s IDpro connects the world of auto ID technologies with information and control technology.
Identical fieldbus components for bar code scanners, image-based code readers, and RFID interrogators
Based on the standard ID platform, the CLV6xx, LECTOR620 and RFH6xx/RFU6xx product families have all the features required for convenient network integration. Openness to all fieldbusses common in industry guarantees manifold suitability for networking.
All three auto ID technologies are directly connectible to Ethernet (TCP/IP) and EtherNet/IP without an additional gateway. All the IDpro sensors can be integrated into a large number of additional fieldbusses by means of the CDF600 fieldbus module. The fieldbus module also offers, for instance connectivity to PROFIBUS DP and EtherCAT with gateway functionality for the CLV6xx bar code scanner and the image-based LECTOR620 code reader as well as the RFH6xx/RFU6xx RFID interrogators.
Function blocks from SICK facilitate greater integration
Function blocks are available for PROFIBUS DP and PROFINET IO to allow even easier and faster integration of the IDpro identification systems into control units, enabling substantial time savings for programmers. Additionally, the special data transmission mode establishes secure data communication between the sensor and the control system.
