The answer for easy identification tasks
Our low-frequency RFID systems (RFID BIS L) are suitable for applications that involve just the identification and less in terms of data processing.
For example, often only a (read-only) code is required for backtracing. The 125-kHz systems function reliably up to ranges of 100 mm and behave in a relatively neutral manner with respect to materials such as water, textiles, wood and aluminum.
LF data carriers accompany the workpieces through the entire production process. If your application requires a large number of tags, data carriers from Balluff (RFID BIS L) are an economical and reliable choice. Some of them have read-only functionality, which precludes the possibility of tampering and ensures high data security.
Our application-specific LF read/write heads and antennas in industrial-grade design are easy to integrate into your system.
Up to four read/write heads can be connected to BIS V processor units. Especially small read heads in the M12 or M18 size with separated evaluation electronics are available for constricted spaces.
We also offer read heads with IO-Link interface, which are often used when only simple identification (read-only) is required for tracking.
Our LF read/write heads with an integrated processor unit combine antenna, electronics and interface in one housing.
Easy installation saves time and money. Some read heads are also suitable for tight installation conditions. Special variants with separated electronics create leeway for the installation. And the rugged housing in IP67 ensures reliable use in a harsh environment.
Our LF handheld devices are outstanding for portable reading and writing of BIS L data carriers. They are used in manual quality control or in documenting maintenance procedures.
Handhelds from Balluff use WLAN, Bluetooth or USB connection for data transmission. They are modular for adding 1D or 2D barcode readers and are absolutely reliable even in poor lighting conditions and harsh environments.
With our BIS V processor unit, you can simultaneously use up to four read/write heads per processor. The BIS V allows mixed operation of all frequencies (BIS M, BIS L, BIS C, BIS U). Therefore, only one type of processor unit needs to be stocked, which greatly simplifies inventory management. For use in any industrial sector the processor unit is available with all globally standard bus systems.
LF data couplers from Balluff ensure the greatest possible flexibility. They securely transmit the data via two air interfaces. In so doing, they handle the contactless bridging of the two transitions instead of a fixed data transmission. The data couplers are generally used where a double mechanical interface is indispensable, for example, with rotary tables, replaceable workpiece holders or gripper arms. This allows you to check the function even at previously inaccessible locations.
