Integrate into existing networks Add multiple channels 32 Kbyte memory
Turck introduces a 2RFID module for its BL ident RFID system that complements its existing BL20 and BL67 network I/O systems. Up to 8 channels can be added to a single BL ident node, depending on the system requirements. All channels operate in parallel so that there is no time delay during communication between the data carrier and module. The BL ident RFID system may be integrated into existing networks, including PROFIBUS-DP®, DeviceNet, Modbus-TCP, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP. Standard function modules and/or sample code are available for integration into the control and fieldbus environment. Additional functions, such as intentional switch-off of individual read/write heads, are inherent when the heads are installed in close proximity with overlapping air interface areas. Furthermore, a 32 Kbyte memory allows asynchronous processing of the individual read/write commands.
