High Frequency RFID designed for the toughest applications
The BIS M RFID system (13.56 MHz) supports global ISO standards and is capable of reading tags up to 400mm away.
Ideal for work in process(WIP) applications, the BIS M system is built to withstand the rigors of the manufacturing world. With tags built to survive temperatures up to 220C and systems capable of processing massive amounts of data quickly, chances are good that the M system will exceed most requirements for data collection needs.
The BIS V processor is a combination of low frequency, high frequency, and ultra-high frequency RFID with flexible I/O on one controller. The BIS V can accept read heads from the C, M, L, and U series. A unique advantage of using the V is the ability to drop up to 16 points of I/O out of the IO-Link master port located on-board. Also, The V can connect to any major control network and can read tags up to 128KB. The V is a must when it comes to high speed and/or high memory capacity (up to 128KB) applications.
Data carriers accompany the workpieces through the entire production process. In this context, they are in part exposed to extreme conditions from high temperatures, metal and other environmental influences. BIS M data carriers withstand the high demands of such environments. The wide product range from Balluff offers the right product for a wide variety of applications.
Ideal for rework lanes and quality control areas where a fixed mount reader will not extend to. Read, write, and transfer data just like the mounted readers. These handheld devices are also expandable with 1D or 2D barcode readers.
All-in-one readers are ideal where space is a premium or there is a need for only one read station per PLC or PC.
Application-specific read/write heads from Balluff allow for easy integration into most networks. They support the global standard ISO 15693 and in part ISO 14443A. Thanks to a robust housing with protection class IP67, they are also suitable for use in harsh environments. Read/write range depends on the combination of read/write head and data carrier(tag) used.
Most form factors are also available in IO-Link interface. These heads are ideal for moving small amounts of data quickly with the added benefit of integrating directly into the current architecture.
