All-in-One RFID Reader BISM-4008 Profinet

All-in-One RFID Reader BISM-4008 Profinet

All-in-one RFID reader

Can be connected directly – save time, space and costs

HF-Reader BIS M-4008 – communicate directly with the control system

The 13.56 MHz readers are used for the contactless identification of data carriers at workpieces and workpiece carriers in the production process. This All-in-One RFID Reader is connected directly to the control level via the Profinet interface. There is no need for an additional evaluation unit.

Easy System Expansion

The integrated two-port Ethernet switch allows both RT (real time) and IRT (isochronous real time) to be used in linear and annular topology. System expansion is also easy. This is because no external switches are required. Device master data are available as a GSDML file for type-specific parameterization.

Inexpensive connection

The simple connection concept involves inexpensive four-pin M12 standard cables being used both for power and for Profinet.

Fast: Read up to 10000 bytes per second

BIS M-4008 readers support data carriers in accordance with RFID standard ISO 15693. The readers are also the right choice if a large quantity of data is to be transmitted in an extremely short time: This is because the BIS M-4008 readers read and write several thousands of bytes per second in combination with Balluff high-speed/high-memory tags. Data carriers directly on the workpiece increase production flexibility. All the parameters and production steps can be stored directly, relieving this burden from the central controller. The data carriers are available in many different memory capacities up to maximum 128 kBytes.

Installation directly on metal

The robust, compact housing with IP67 protection rating is perfectly suited to field installation in a harsh industrial environment. Attachment on metal is possible with no clear zone, since the housing is constructed of die-cast zinc. A provided grounding strap ensures perfect electromagnetic compatibility.
