Balluff All-in-one RFID read/write system for Ethernet/IP
The all-in-one RFID read/write family includes Ethernet/IP communication. The space-saving housing is designed to eliminate cable runs back to the control cabinet and simplify RFID traceability applications in manufacturing processes. This system can operate with a direct connection to the PLC, or multiple heads can be daisy-chained with only one Ethernet connection running back to the PLC. Designed to withstand the rigors of a harsh manufacturing environment, the system features an IP67-rated metal housing and highly visible LEDs. Standard M12 connectors and cables are used for power and Ethernet connections. The system can read and write large amounts of tag data, including tags mounted directly on metal.
