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 carriers: The data and the required energy are inductively coupled by the read/write head
  • All data carriers have unique ID number
  • 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
  • Different properties such as mounting on metal, high-temperature, …
  • for time-critical applications: High-Speed data carriers, up to eight times faster than ISO 15693
  • Special key data carriers for transfer systems that are read/write on two sides
  • Databolts are easy to attach to the object and can then be quickly detached

HF read/write heads and antennas (13.56 MHz)

  • Easy startup, minimal down-times: status indicators directly on the read/write head
  • 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 flush installation in metal
  • M12 designs with integrated antenna
  • Special read/write heads, for example, for transfer systems for simple assembly without 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)

  • The processor units process the data recorded by the read heads and relay it to the industrial fieldbus, which communicates with the PLC/PC
  • Operate up to four read heads at the same time with BIS V – regardless of whether LF, HF or UHF

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

  • Available interfaces: 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

HF communication modules (13.56 MHz)

  • For point-to-point or bus connection, are directly connected to a PC or bus interface through a serial interface
  • The Subnet16 TM bus architecture supports a subnet of up to sixteen nodes via an RS485 interface
