Pepperl+Fuchs IDENTControl Compact RFID Controller Video

The IDENTControl Compact control interface from Pepperl+Fuchs provides the possibility of connecting all read/write heads with different frequency ranges to a single control interface. The IDENTControl Compact is used for more distributed control systems and machines requiring only one or two read/write heads. The smaller housing and connections for fewer heads reduces costs. The space-saving housing is available as a 1-channel or 2-channel version for a variety of applications. RS232, RS485, PROFIBUS and Ethernet interfaces are supported. In this example, individual machine tool components are identified via RFID. On the IDENTControl Compact shown here, two different read/write heads are connected. …

Pepperl+Fuchs IDENTControl Compact RFID Controller

Pepperl+Fuchs introduces IDENTControl Compact – one- and two-head RFID controller solutions to complement the company’s family of four-head IDENTControl RFID controllers. IDENTControl Compact delivers the same easy-to-use software features and robust operation as the company’s four-head solutions but in a compact housing that is four times smaller, and that enables users to connect all read/write heads, even with different frequency ranges, to a single control interface. “Until now, Pepperl+Fuchs’ RFID connectivity for Ethernet and PROFIBUS systems was limited to four-head RFID controllers. This was great for large systems because of the high read head density and the advanced diagnostics available …
