IFM Electronic’s UHF RFID system uses the 865-870MHz band (there is also a 902-928MHz variant for the US market), offering flexibility on a standard platform.

For the European range there are five different antennae.

The more compact ultra-low and low range will read tags in close proximity without seeing adjacent tags, making them the most selective.

A mid-range antenna will pick up data from a tag up to 2m away, while the long-range options can read a tag at 7m.

Bulk reading of the standard tags is also well within the capability of the new system, which is based around the worldwide ISO 18000-6C, EPC, Global Class 1 Gen 2.

The information read from the tag is presented to the outside world through a simple Ethernet TCP/IP standard interface.

The software for configuring the system reader with up to four antennae attached comes supplied with IFM’s DTE800 reader unit.

Further integration into an automated system is made possible with coordinating input and output signals on the reader.

So a read sequence can be triggered by an external event and sorting carried out directly via the DTE read unit.

All units, readers and antennae come housed in industrial designs featuring IP65 and standard industrial connectors.

A selection of co-axial leads for the antennae, Ethernet patchcords and M12 power and I/O connectors form part of the overall offering.
