HF RFID IO-Link Read/Write Head

HF RFID Read/Write Heads with Integrated IO-Link Interface

With the new RFID read/write heads, Pepperl+Fuchs extends its IO-Link sensor portfolio. The devices available in three housing designs work in the HF range (ISO 15693) and are suitable for use in harsh industrial environments. The heads support the fast, open, and consequently future-proof IO-Link standard V1.1.

The Easy Mode allows for simple commissioning with plug-and-play connectivity, without programming or function blocks. This is ideal for customers with little or no RFID experience or for simple identification tasks.

On the Way to Industry 4.0 with 5G

5G-ACIA Task Force Gets to Work. In a world of connected plants and machines that communicate with each other, fast data connections are needed to make such scenarios possible in the first place. The coming 5G mobile communication generation is of critical importance, because present communications standards cannot fulfill the requirements of industrial applications. To define the standards of this mobile communication generation and ensure suitability for automation, the “5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation” (5G-ACIA) task force was founded on April 3, 2018 at the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturer’s Association (ZVEI). Pepperl+Fuchs, a manufacturer of industrial automation technology, is also part of this initiative and is working together with 32 other members to prepare 5G for industrial use.

RFID Handhelds for Hazardous and Industrial Areas

Convenient Hose Maintenance in Hazardous and Industrial Areas. Among giant tanks and conveyor systems in chemical plants, thousands of hoses transport process media from point A to point B. Substances can include gas, oil, water, steam, and a range of chemicals. To ensure that these media are safely transported, legally defined regulations are in place for maintenance cycles of industrial and chemical hoses. RFID handhelds from Pepperl+Fuchs and ecom, paired with application-specific software developed by Neoception, make these maintenance tasks convenient and efficient.
