TURCK releases Q120 UHF read/write head

October 16, 2014 - TURCK announces its Q120 compact UHF read/write head, a flexible RFID solution that improves identification in close and medium UHF applications. The product is suitable for application ranges up to 3 meters with a 50mm tag.

The Q120 UHF read/write head can be operated on TURCK’s BL ident platform, easily integrating into existing control systems across all major protocols to provide an all-in-one industrial RFID solution. For more application flexibility, the Q120 can be operated simultaneously with HF solutions for an industrial RFID solution.

The compact read/write head supports ISO 18000-6C and EPCglobal Gen 2 Standards, and combines antenna and electronics in a robust IP67 aluminum housing with dimensions 130 x 120 x 60 mm. Paired with TURCK’s robust UHF tag selection, the Q120 can now be directly mounted on metal, and used at high temperatures or in autoclaves.


“The Q120 UHF read/write head broadens our RFID portfolio, and TURCK can now provide a UHF read/write solution to a wider range of applications,” said Don Eichman, product manager for TURCK. “With longer read/write distances through UHF technology, we can find more flexible solutions for customers — for example, finding a better mounting location for the read/write head. When used with other TURCK products, the Q120 makes us more competitive across the spectrum of UHF read/write applications.”
