MC Contrinex RFID RW Units from Automation Direct 1 400x275

August 23, 2022


RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) technology uses radio frequencies to read and write data to/from electronic labels called tags. RFID technology doesn’t require a line of sight between the tag and the Read/Write module to operate, and tags store a large amount of data that can be edited.

New Contrinex RFID RW units are available in 18mm or 30mm diameters, and a 44mm x 44mm cube style, with transmission ranges of up to 78mm; these units can communicate to a PLC or other intelligent device over IO-Link. RFID tags are available in 9mm, 16mm, 20mm, 30mm, and 50mm sizes with user memory from 316 to 2000 bytes in either EEPROM or FRAM memory types. A high-temperature tag model is also available. All of these products are rated for IP67 and IP68/69k. All Contrinex RFID RW units and RFID tags come with a one-year warranty.

RFID Read-Write modules are a type of transceiver that can communicate with electronic tags using high-frequency RFID technology. Tags are attached to target objects and are a type of transponder that stores identification data. Contrinex RFID Read-Write modules offer fast data transfer times and can communicate to higher-level devices such as a PLC using the IO-Link protocol.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
