Due to the proven "UHF for Industry" algorithms, users benefit from extremely high reliability even in environments with poor radio signals. With its circularly polarized antenna, the reader offers high flexibility in the placement of RFID transponders to be captured. With both a digital input and a digital output, the Simatic RF615R offers a simple trigger option for distributed read points as well as local response to reading events. Access to configuration, commissioning and diagnostic tools takes place in the customary way via a web browser. This benefits users in terms of fast commissioning and diagnostics and improves project efficiency. Other functions which improve plant availability include in-process diagnosis and the diagnostic history in the logbook. The new reader is most ideally suited for use in mechanical and plant engineering as well as in conveyor technology. Due to its high protection rating of IP67, Simatic RF615R can also be used in harsh industrial environments.
