RFID gateway module

The new Turck 2RFID module for the company’s BL ident radio-frequency identification (RFID) system adds to existing BL20 and BL67 network I/O systems. Up to 8 channels can be added to each BL ident node, depending on system requirements. All channels operate in parallel, so there is no time delay during communication between the data carrier and module.

The new Turck 2RFID module for the company’s BL ident radio-frequency identification (RFID) system adds to existing BL20 and BL67 network I/O systems. Up to 8 channels can be added to each BL ident node, depending on system requirements. All channels operate in parallel, so there is no time delay during communication between the data carrier and module. Additional standard I/O modules may reside in the same rack, still providing IP20 or IP67 protection. BL ident offers 2, 4, 6 or 8 channels and may be integrated into existing networks, including Profibus-DP and DeviceNet industrial networks and industrial Ethernet protocols: Modbus-TCP, Profinet, and EtherNet/IP. Standard function modules and/or sample code are available for integration into the control and fieldbus environment. www.turck.com Turck
