BIS M Industrial RFID System

The force packet for speed and large volumes of data

BIS M Industrial RFID System

The RFID system BIS M (13.56 MHz) supports global ISO standards and scores with a high transmission speed for large volumes of data.

Through various combination options of data carriers and read/write heads, the system can be used for many applications. For example, it is suitable, for part tracking in the vicinity or for applications in production control (palletizing, recording on the workpiece, ...).

The features

  • 4-pin standard wiring and availability of IO-Link components
  • In combination with passive data carriers, an average range up to a maximum of 400 mm
  • Seamless integration in applications through global RFID standards ISO 15693 and ISO 14443A
  • All bus systems commonly used on a global basis available
  • Easy, fast commissioning
  • Balluff high-speed components (up to eight times faster than ISO 15693)
  • Customer-specific developments
  • A variety of accessories for an easy integration available at all places of use

HF data carriers (13.56 MHz)

  • Passive data carrier: The data and the required power are inductively coupled by the read/write head
  • All data carriers have a unique ID number; this number is read-only and cannot be modified
  • Can be used all over the world thanks to ISO 15693 conformity
  • EEPROM data carrier, up to 992 byte memory
  • FRAM data carrier with up to 128 kB for almost unlimited feed cycles
  • Attachment by adhesion or screws
  • High level of protection up to IP68/69K
  • A wide variety of properties, such as installation on metal, high temperature, etc.
  • For time-critical applications: Balluff high-speed data carriers are up to eight times faster than ISO 15693
  • Special key data carriers for transfer systems that are read/write on two sides
  • Data carriers available in compact sizes
  • Databolts are easy to attach to the object and can then be quickly detached

HF read/write heads and antennas (13.56 MHz)

  • Status indicated directly on the read/write head: easy commissioning, minimum downtimes
  • Up to four read/write heads can be connected to the BIS V processor units
  • Connection via M12 plug connectors, cable length 50 m
  • Read/write heads for the flush installation in metal
  • M12 designs with integrated antenna
  • Special read/write heads available for situations such as transfer systems with simple installation, with no need for additional mounting brackets
  • HF loop antennas for long ranges up to 400 mm
  • Customized designs possible
  • Tool ID components available in the same design as the BIS C read/write heads

HF processor units (13.56 MHz)

  • Perfect EMC due to the robust zinc die-cast housing
  • All connections are easily accessible from the front
  • Variable mounting concept for easy assembly on top hat rails or on the profile
  • LCD display and pushbuttons for simple commissioning
  • Each read/write head signals its operating state via two LEDs directly on the processor unit
  • Integrated IO-Link master port for the connection of IO-Link-capable sensors and actuators
  • Web server for convenient remote condition monitoring
  • Function components of many common controller manufacturers for fast use
  • Integrated 2-port Ethernet switch for line and ring topology
  • Small and compact (172 × 48 × 62 mm)
  • USB interface for rapid commissioning without bus link
  • BIS Cockpit: Read/write head configurable independent of interface with PC-based software tool
  • Power supply via robust 7/8" plug for harsh industrial environments

HF read/write heads (13.56 MHz) with integrated processor unit

  • Available interfaces: IO-Link, Serial RS232, RS485/Subnet 16, RS422, USB
  • Also with bus interface: Connect All-in-One RFID Reader BIS M-4008 direct to Profinet
  • Reliable use in harsh environments: rugged IP67 housing
  • Status displays directly on the housing of the reader facilitate the commissioning and minimize down times
