increase productivity and process reliability with new uhf rfid reader f190 from pepperlfuchs

twinsburg, oh &ndash pepperlfuchs introduces the new compact f190 uhf readwrite head. the f190 features a robust sealed metal housing and a compact footprint for reliable operation in adverse environmental conditions and simple installation even in tight spaces. because several products in a container can be detected at the same time using multitag reading, the f190 simultaneously simplifies processes and reduces processing time. the f190 easily integrates into existing identcontrol systems, enabling users to connect to standard protocols such as ethernetip, profinet, tcpip and ethercat. three reader versions are available to cover worldwide operation.&nbsp&ldquoin the field of&nbspintralogistics, efficiency is the number one priority. goods have to be distributed quickly and reliably, and forwarded to their intended destination&nbspwithout any allocation errors. the new generation of f190 uhf readwrite head opens up a&nbspwealth of opportunities for the&nbsplogistics sector&nbspand the&nbspautomotive industry, for example,&rdquo says tim cicerchi, product marketing manager.&nbspparticularly costefficient uhflabels are directly attached to the products. when these uhf labels move into the read field of the f190, the label information&nbspis transmitted to the read head and then to the identcontrol interface. where previously the data was transmitted for each tag individually, the f190&nbsptransmits data in bundles. this enables information from&nbspup to 40 tags&nbspto be transmitted to the read head in a single step.&nbspthe f190 uhf rfid reader boasts a typical read range of 0.2 up to 1.5 meters. it also accommodates linear vertical, linear horizontal or circular polarization. the advantage of circular polarization is that a tag can be read in any orientation, while linear polarization provides more power in a known tag orientation. the unit connects to the controller with a standard industrial m12 connector. the read head can be connected 100 m away if required. additionally, an innovative powersweep mode lets users set a predetermined number of tags to be read the power is then slowly ramped up until all the tags are read and the reader is then shut off until the next read cycle.&nbspno middleware is required so the f190 communicates directly with plc control systems from allen bradley, siemens and many others. even though no extra software is required, a free demo program, rfidcontrol, can be used to setup and test the system.&nbsppepperlfuchs is a world leader in the design, manufacture and application of high quality factory and process automation products and services. pepperlfuchs pioneered the development of proximity sensors 50 years ago, and has set the standard for innovation and quality ever since.&nbsp&nbsppepperlfuchs, 1600 enterprise parkway, twinsburg, oh 44087 330 4860001 fax 330 4054710 lead processing email or send all leads to pepperlfuchs, 1600 enterprise parkway, twinsburg, oh 44087, attn tonya maley. please identify leads with item code pfa723 for fastest lead processing.&nbsp
