iDTRONIC Releases RFID Solution for Forklifts
iDTRONIC has announced that its BLUEBOX Micro IA RFID Industrial Reader, with an integrated antenna, is designed for industrial applications within intralogistical processes involving forklifts. The reading device is equipped with an M12 plug connection and has a power supply of 10 to 36 volts; the output line is up to 27 dBm / 500 mW and can be regulated from 10 dBm forward, in 1-dBm steps.
The BLUEBOX Micro IA has pre-drilled holes and can be screwed onto a forklift. The reader possesses a RS-232 COM interface; this serial alignment is intended for a connection to a monitor in the operators cab of a forklift, the company notes. The device is also equipped with an RS-485 interface; this asynchronous serial alignment allows for data communication to a warehouse over long distances.
The device supports the global UHF RFID frequencies: 865 to 868 MHz (ETSI) and 902 to 928 MHz (FCC). Due to its integrated antenna and 3-meter (9.8-foot) reading distance, the firm reports, it is suitable for high-rise racks and large storehouses. Pallets and goods can be safely identified, either by mounted RFID transponders or from RFID tags, via the BLUEBOX Micro IA, and can then be assigned to shelves. The reader transfers the data to the monitor inside the forklift and displays information about the content and storage location.
