The First Modular RFID System with Built-in I/O
Minneapolis, Minn. — TURCK introduces BL ident, the world’s first modular RFID system with built-in I/O capability. With BL ident, users may add additional I/O modules to the RFID system: up to 8 channels of RFID, plus additional discrete or analog I/O comprise a single node on the network. Built on the ISO15693 13.56MHz HF standard, BL ident can be integrated into existing platforms and supports PROFIBUS®-DP, DeviceNet™, Modbus-TCP, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP™. Standard non-programmable gateways and CoDeSys programmable gateways are available with either IP 20 or IP 67 protection rating.

BL ident data carriers are available in a variety ofdifferent shapes with read/write intervals between 5 to 500 mm. The data carriersuse state-of-the-art FRAM storage technology for a virtually unlimited numberof write operations. TURCK’s BL ident systemis also the first in the industry to introduce high temperature data carriersrated up to 210°C. Available in two space saving form factors, these datacarriers require no cool down time for read or write operations. Additionally, TURCK’s BL ident RFIDhas the ability to read or write data simultaneously at 0.5 ms per byte, making BL ident oneof the fastest inductive RFID systems on the market. BL ident iseven capable of “on the fly” production speeds of 10 ms at distances up to 500mm.
Online BL ident configuration software accompanies thesystem and enables applications to be simulated online before specifying hardwarefor purchase. This allows issues, such as the distance between the data carriersand the read/write heads and the maximum speed of the tags past the heads, tobe clarified without any complex calculations or hardware.
