Balluff's new break-off magnetic mount with tag holder allows for easy integration of RFID systems
Using a magnetic connection, they are ideal for presses where frequent tool or size changes are required.
The magnetic mounts not only make it easier to align read/write heads and help in the continuity of the RFID signal, but they also protect the heads from accidental damage.
"Whether it is being utilized in a die ID application to ensure the right die is loaded for the right job or for a work-in-process application where the work piece is dynamic, the magnetic mount is an ideal solution for ensuring the reader and the tag maintain constant communication," said Wolfgang Kratzenberg, Balluff RFID product marketing manager. "In addition, if the operator fails to disengage the reader, the magnetic mount simply breaks away from the work piece causing no harm to the reader."
