RFU61x UHF RFID read/write device

RFU61x UHF RFID read/write device


The RFU61x is the smallest read/write device of its type on the market. It is perfectly suited for IoT applications directly on the workpiece or component. The RFU61x therefore rounds out the UHF product family from SICK by enabling continuous identification along the entire value chain for the first time.

The interfaces of the RFU61x enable direct connection of a trigger sensor, whereby the RFU61x can be used as a remote, self-supporting unit. Thanks to the integrated process logic, data can be processed directly in the RFU61x and passed onto the control. Like the other RFU devices, the RFU61x can also be programmed according to individual requirements using the SICK AppSpace eco-system.

Product traceability and anti-counterfeiting solutions require reliable automatic identification products. SICK offers the three most common industrial identification technologies: laser-based scanners for 1D codes, image-based 1D and 2D code readers, and RFID readers. Integrated interfaces enable the readers to communicate inside industrial networks and innovative functionality makes commissioning and operation easy.

Radio-based RFID technologies in the HF (high frequency) and UHF (ultra high frequency) ranges supplement SICK’s industrial automation portfolio. In applications where process-relevant data is modified remotely, RFID makes it possible to store data on writable and rewritable media. In contrast to optical solutions, RFID provides reliable identification of all objects – despite dirt and everyday wear.
