January 18, 2019 – iDTRONIC’s HF Mid-Range M500 is a integrated module and extends the embedded module series. The module has dimensions of only 10.95 × 6.0 × 1.7 cm. The integrated SMA antenna port can be connected to a variety of HF antennas. The HF Mid-Range M500 module is suitable for many applications in industrial automation, retail or access control.
The Embedded HF Mid-Range M500 module is equipped with a 15 Vdc power supply. The various interface options such as TTL or RS232 are adapted to many applications. The embedded module is equipped with the 13.56 MHz HF frequency. The module can read tags and transponders with the Standard ISO15693 and ISO18000-3 with a reading range of up to 40 cm. The integrated anti-collision function can read up to 30 tags or transponders simultaneously.
A software development kit (SDK) and configuration tool for Windows operating systems is provided as well as an operating system-independent command protocol.
The Embedded HF Mid-Range Module M500 can be implemented within industrial automation processes. Robot arms or an entire automated process can be controlled with this embedded module. RFID technology allows an individual transponder to be attached to each component. This ensures that the right part is provided for the product in each section of automation. If a product requires several screws, the HF Mid-Range Module M500 identifies these in the scope of up to 30 pieces per bulk acquisition.
Additionally, the module is suited for demanding environments with High temperatures, such as welding shops. The HF Mid-Range Module M500 can withstand temperatures of up to +80 °C without any problem. The data of the transponder on the product is automatically stored for statistical purposes.
