Leakage Testing in Automobile Production

Waterproof: RFID tags with sensor element test for leaks

Together with its partners Smartrac and Vilant, Turck offers a fully automated leakage testing system in automobile production. The system is based on UHF-RFID technology and detects all leakages in car bodies without the need for any manual intervention.

For this the car body is fitted during the production process with self-adhesive tags at relevant points.

If the tag detects humidity, it reacts with a change in impedance, which is registered by the RFID read/write heads in the gates.

Turck Presents UHF Reader Platform for Industry 4.0

Direct connection of external antennas increases flexibility of read/write heads and simplifies gate applications At the SPS IPC Drives fair, Turck will be presenting the first device in its Q300 UHF reader family with an Ethernet interface. RFID users particularly benefit from the range of platforms and interfaces of the Q300 readers. Up to four external antennas can be connected directly on the reader, thus considerably simplifying the creation of high performance gate applications in multiplex operation. The direct connection of triggers and signals via universal I/Os also simplifies the installation. With an output power of up to 2 W the readers can achieve very large read/write ranges. Their selectable antenna polarization enables read holes to be excluded in any environment, even with a high output.
