Turck has expanded its BL ident RFID product with the release of a Simple RFID (RFID-S) slice for its BL20 modular I/O system. Each RFID-S slice contains two channels of RFID. Additional RFID slices, as well as traditional discrete and analog I/O slices, may be added to the system, making it the only product on the market that allows this combination on the same node on a network.
This flexible design facilitates the integration of RFID into both new and existing systems. The RFID-S slice does not require special software for integration into a PLC system, further simplifying the entire process
The RFID-S slice is compatible with Turck’s IP 20 rated BL20 non-programmable and programmable gateways, available for use on PROFIBUS®-DP, PROFINET, DeviceNet™, Modbus TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP™ networks. All RFID channels operate in parallel, so there is no time delay during communication between the tag and the read/write head—optimizing production speeds. The Turck RFID-S slice is designed with digitized communication, allowing up to a 50-meter separation between the transceiver and slice without noise induction to ensure clear, unobstructed application results.
