Balluff Magnetic Mount Simplifies RFID Integration

Balluff has announced that its new break-off magnetic mount with tag holder allows for easy integration of RFID systems. Using a magnetic connection, the solution is suitable for presses for which frequent tool or size changes are required.

The magnetic mounts are designed to make it easier to align read-write heads and help in the continuity of the RFID signal, the company reports. What's more, the devices protect the heads from accidental damage.

"Whether it is being utilized in a die ID application to ensure the right die is loaded for the right job or for a work-in-process application where the work piece is dynamic, the magnetic mount is an ideal solution for ensuring the reader and the tag maintain constant communication," said Wolfgang Kratzenberg, Balluff's RFID product marketing manager, in a prepared statement.

"In addition," Kratzenberg said, "if the operator fails to disengage the reader, the magnetic mount simply breaks away from the work piece causing no harm to the reader."
