KWS optimizes and secures the production of seeds with Turck's RFID solution BL ident and the use of Profinet S2. Objective: The wireless identification and temperature monitoring of silo boxes – system redundancy included.
As the world market leader for sugar beet seed, KWS Saat supplies all its customers with seed varieties for conventional and organic cultivation that are specially tailored to their requirements. To do this, the seed must be propagated and processed under suitable climatic conditions. In this highly automated treatment process for sugar beet seeds, the BL ident RFID solution from Turck
ensures the contactless transmission of power, address data and measured values from temperature sensors inside silo boxes.
In addition, high plant availability is also achieved – also thanks to the Profinet S2 redundancy of the RFID interfaces. The possibility of automatic address assignment and Turck's HF bus mode for connecting up to 32 HF read/write devices per port guarantees fast installation, efficient storage and easy device replacement for service tasks.
