Siemens Unveils New UHF RFID Reader With IoT Interface
Siemens is extending its range of Simatic RF600 ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) devices to include an RFID reader. The Simatic RF615R measures 133 millimeters by 155 millimeters by 45 millimeters, and comes with an internal, circularly polarized antenna and an additional external antenna connection. Using the connection for the additional external antenna, it is possible to set up a small-scale RFID gate.
The device supports OPC UA as an Internet of Things (IoT) interface and communicates via the OPC UA AutoID Companion Specification V1.0 data model. This permits vendor-independent communication within the automation and a standardized connection to cloud applications such as the open cloud-based IoT operating system MindSphere, via an industrial IoT gateway such as Ruggedcom RX1400 with CloudConnect. Analysis of gathered data provides transparency for KPIs such as plant availability, utilization of assets or energy-saving potential.
The reader is suitable for use in mechanical and plant engineering, the company reports, as well as with conveyor technology. Due to its protection rating of IP67, the RF615R can be used in harsh industrial environments.
