Balluff Upgrades BIS V Industrial RFID System
Balluff, the U.S. subsidiary of Germany's Balluff GmbH, has released a new version of its BIS V industrial RFID system. Capable of reading three different frequencies of RFID tags, the system now includes support for a BIS C (70/455 kHz) read-write head, in addition to BIS M (13.56 MHz), BIS L (125 kHz) and BIS VM high-speed read-write heads, which are capable of reading 128-kilobyte 13.56 MHz tags very quickly, according to Balluff. BIS V is designed to address the challenges of a flexible manufacturing environment, the company reports.
The BIS V can connect to all major control systems. Since the processor houses a network In and Out port, the company says, the network can be configured in multiple topologies and make a single connection back to the PLC via Ethernet/IP, Profinet, Profibus, CC-Link or Ethercat.
"The BIS V is like the Swiss Army Knife of RFID," said Wolfgang Kratzenberg, Balluff's marketing manager for industrial identification, in a prepared statement. "Our customers will be able to address a variety of applications with one system. Whether it is standard pallet tracking on a conveyor, high-speed tracking through a transfer system, or machine tool identification, they will be able to do it all and then some with the BIS V."
