The RFID compact unit 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.
