The tag at the bobbin can be identified at any position within the read head

The IQH1-F198-V1 HF read/write head is the result of a client-specific project and was developed for use in cap strip and tire building machines in tire manufacturing.

A ring-shaped HF read/write head was created as the optimum solution so that the bobbin fixture can be put through the read/write head and the RFID tag is always positioned within the reading range of the reader.

This product shows Pepperl+Fuch’s ability to respond flexibly, quickly and successfully to customer wishes and to implement new products together with the customer.
