Compact RFID read/write unit with integrated RFID-HF antenna, evaluation and CANopen interface for reliable ID tag identification
Easy installation and application
The DTC510 RFID read/write doesn’t need a conventional evaluation unit. This device combines RFID HF antenna, electronics and CANopen interface in one compact housing. This eliminates the need for complex wiring. The corresponding ESD file ensures fast and easy integration into higherlevel control systems with a CANopen master. The antenna face can be aligned in five different directions . This means there are no limits to mechanical mounting. Typical applications are for example product tracking, material flow control and traceability. Besides, the robust design with protection ratings IP 67 and IP 69K permits use in harsh industrial environments.
The DTC510 can for example be used to store the number of the workpiece carrier on ID tags in production control. This ensures that the right product is in the right place at the right time.
Material flow control
The RFID system can be used to check whether the right material is available in the required quantity and quality in the right place at the right time.
Traceability is an important tool for production control and optimisation. RFID and DTC510 provide the data that is sent to a controller or to a database.
