The BIS-V RFID controllers from Balluff are an intelligent combination of RFID and sensors to create a compact evaluation unit that enables the simultaneous connection of up to four read/write heads.
Both HF (13.56 MHz) in accordance with ISO 15693 and ISO 14443, and LF (125 kHz) read heads can be connected on the front with plug connectors and are automatically detected. The RFID controllers allow IO-Link capable sensors or actuators to also be directly connected, resulting in considerable hardware and installation savings.
The IP67 rated controller features metal housing, fulfilling all requirements for an industry-ready version and is also equipped with Profibus interface as well as with USB as the service interface to the PC.
The intelligent combination of RFID controllers and sensors finds application in many areas including in identification tasks for material flow control in production systems where the user can profit from the low hardware usage and the low installation costs in areas such as conveyor systems in mechanical engineering, assembly lines, electric suspension systems or in the entire intralogistics field.
