UHF RFID Readers

Turck’s Long Range UHF Readers Designed for Industrial Use

Highspeed transmission of data across long ranges are the core features of UHF RFID systems. Therefore UHF became standard for applications demanding greater distances between readers and data carriers.

Radio ranges of up to several meters are possible with Turck’s BL ident system and UHF readers, depending on the surrounding conditions. This means high operational safety for automated processes where data carriers are constantly in motion. It also provides high flexibility for manually executed identification tasks. The radio interface for readers and tags is internationally standardized (ISO 18000-6c with UHF).
