The 2RFID module for the BL ident RFID system compliments existing BL20 and BL67 network I/O systems. The modular configuration ensures flexible integration into new or existing 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. Additional standard I/O modules may also reside in the same rack configuration, while providing IP 20 or IP 67 protection. BL ident is available with 2, 4, 6 or 8 channels.
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 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, and LEDs display diagnostics for the individual RFID channels and fieldbus-specific diagnostic messages.
