BIS U Industrial RFID system

For dynamic processes with large reading distances

BIS U Industrial RFID system

UHF systems of Balluff ensure data transparency and traceability in automation processes. UHF is a standard technology for identification solutions covering all processes.

The form helps to achieve a fast detection of tag information and continuous transmission safety. By querying decentralized-storage product- and process-data, UHF is a central component of traceability applications in each phase of the material flow. Therefore, a continuous data transparency is ensured in the entire supply chain.
