Turck’s BL67 modular distributed I/O system is now equipped with a Simple RFID (RFID-S) slice that is compatible with the BL ident RFID product line.
The RFID-S features two channels of RFID per slice, and up to four slices may be added to each BL67 node, resulting in up to eight channels of RFID per node.
For increased application flexibility, Turck’s BL67 system is IP67 rated so can be directly mounted on a machine without the need of an enclosure. The system can also accommodate the addition of discrete and analogue I/O points, combining RFID and I/O within the same node.
The RFID-S slice features digitised communication that enables the RFID transceiver to be located up to 50 meters apart from the slice without experiencing noise induction.
As all the RFID channels operate in parallel, communications between the RFID tag and the read/write head experience no time delay, delivering accurate and up-to-date application information.
