What if Track and Trace implementation could be as simple as connecting a sensor?
With IO-Link enabled RFID readers, it’s that easy. IO-Link is the foundation to a smart factory. It unlocks trapped intelligence from sensors and actuators sending it to PLCs, SCADA systems, etc. IO-Link simplifies controls architecture. The IO-Link enabled RFID antennas integrate with IO-Link masters the same way other IO-Link enabled devices do, complimenting machine I/O architecture.
Instead of using a dedicated RFID controller, the IO-Link antenna simply plugs into the IO-Link master. The smart all-in-one antenna / reader transmits data to and from standard RFID tags that meet ISO 15693 standards. It’s truly plug-and-play.
IO-Link RFID systems are ideal for applications with a small amount of data transmitted at relatively slow speed, such as:
