Turck Australia introduces a new RFID module with an OPC UA server to
its TBEN-L family. The new RFID module will simplify the integration and
implementation of RFID systems for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The TBEN-L5-4RFID-8DXP-OPC-UA provides large volumes of data quickly and
simply without requiring fragmentation or a reduction of the data volume.
Additionally, the module supports optional commands of the Companion

The OPC UA protocol delivers numerous advantages, including direct
provisioning of information to higher-level systems (MES, ERP, Cloud, PLC, etc.);
simple and seamless integration process, independent of manufacturer or
platform; and built-in security protocols to protect data from unauthorised
