For dynamic processes with large reading distances
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.
Our frequency-independent BIS V processor unit simplifies your inventory management. It is flexible and enables a mixed operation of all product families (BIS M, BIS L, BIS C, BIS U). Up to four read/write heads per VIS V processor unit can be used simultaneously. A bus systems commonly used on a global basis are available for industry-independent use.
Data carriers or "Tags", mark the object to be identified and furnish it with additional information.
The information on data carrier from Balluff can be read, described and protected by a password. You save the product, process and quality data and thereby supply reliable information about the product life cycle. Our modern data carriers conform to the highest industrial requirements: They withstand high temperatures, humidity, chemical substances and are still reliably detectable even in a metal enclosure.
In contrast to barcodes, RFID tags are also readable without optical line of sight and are therefore resistant to soiling. The required energy for the passive data carrier is inductively integrated via the read/write head or derived from the electromagnetic wave radiated by the antenna.
Our handhelds are conceived for the mobile reading and writing of BIS U data carriers. They are used with manual quality control or in the documentation of the maintenance procedure. The data is transmitted via WLAN, Bluetooth or cable-connected USB port. All handhelds from Balluff can be modularly expanded with 1D or 2D barcode readers. They are absolutely reliable even under poor lighting conditions and harsh environments.
Our write/read heads are scalable and allow flexible configuration and realization of the identification task, for example, with conveyor segments or gates. Different versions are available for different ranges and applications. The range here depends on the combination of read/write head or antenna and data carrier that is used and on the configuration of the processor unit.
