Simatic RF600 system—radio frequency identification components, readers, anten-nas, tags, printer, and software—has up to 5 m read/write range. UHF band technology complies with ISO 18000-6, as well as EPCglobal Generation 1 standards, and it is “Gen 2 ready.” Simatic RF 600 RFID system uses the UHF band (902-928 MHz USA; 865-868 MHz Europe) and communicates via Ethernet, RS-422, and RS-232. Simatic FR660R Por-tal Reader is a stationary-mounted read-write device, with LEDs for power, fault indication, and tag-detected. Simatic 660A antenna is optimized for U.S. or Europe, has up to 20 m of cable, and is protected to IP65. Related PC-based software (Microsoft Windows XP with .Net Framework 1.1) will help with configuration, diagnostics, and interfacing to IT systems. Tag storage capacity goes to 2,048 bits, depending on the application.
