The force packet for speed and large volumes of data
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, ...).
Data carriers accompany the workpieces through the entire production process. In this context, they are in part exposed to extreme conditions from high temperatures, metal enclosure and environmental influences. Our HF data carriers withstand the high demands of such environments. The broad Balluff portfolio means you will always find the right product for any application or conditions.
Application-specific HF read/write heads and antennas from Balluff with industrial grade design are simple to integrate into your system. They support the global standard ISO 15693 and in part ISO 14443A. Thanks to a rugged housing with IP67 protection class, they are also suitable for use in harsh environments. Their range depends on the combination of read/write head and data carrier that is used.
HF read/write heads with IO-Link interface are also available. For applications where – with little data – production progress, batch number or quality data must be economically logged.
HF read/write heads with integrated processor unit are the mediators between data carrier and PC or the controller. The benefit to you: Because antenna, electronics and interface are located in a housing, an additional processor unit is eliminated.
In addition, easy integration saves greatly on installation expense. Variants with separated electronics are also suitable for tight installation conditions and provide leeway during the installation.
Our portable HF read/write units are designed for BIS M data carriers. They are outstandingly suited for use in the manual quality testing or for the documentation of the maintenance procedure. The data is transmitted via WLAN, Bluetooth or cable-connected USB port.
The handheld devices are modularly expandable with 1D or 2D barcode readers. The data are securely recorded even under poor lighting conditions and in 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). Thus 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.
HF communication modules/gateways (13.56 MHz) from Balluff are used for point-to-point connection or as a bus interface. They are integrated via the into your system directly via the serial interface of a host computer (RS232) or on a bus interface.
The RS485 interface allows you to construct a subnet with up to 16 nodes. We also offer the suitable read/write heads (HF) for this subnet 16 TM bus topology: Our BIS M-410, BIS M-411 and BIS M-620 feature an integrated processor unit as well as the corresponding subnet 16 RS485 interfaces.
