One Basic Device, Three Frequencies: Modular RFID Handhelds for Industrial Environments

Modular RFID Handhelds from Pepperl+Fuchs

Using a sophisticated mechanism, RFID read/write heads for different frequencies (LF, HF, UHF) can be quickly and easily attached to the handheld's base module without any tools. This ensures users can concentrate completely on the identification task at hand. To help with this, the basic device has a 4.8-inch capacitive, hardened color touch display, which can be read clearly at all times even in suboptimal ambient light conditions. IP54 protection emphasizes the device's suitability for use outdoors and in other challenging environments.

RFID Meets AGV—Three Examples of Practical Applications

RFID on AGVs

Whether as practical automated guided carts, rolling assembly platforms, or massive self-driving container tank transporters, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in all possible designs have become indispensable elements in modern production processes. They help to make everyday work significantly easier, preserve existing resources, and speed up transport processes considerably. They differ widely in appearance, and the technologies that enable the vehicles to work automatically or autonomously are highly diverse.

RFID is often used, and when applied intelligently, this radio-based identification method can perform numerous tasks on the AGV. This blog article presents three possible versions.





RFID in Hazardous Areas—Three Examples from the Field

RFID in Explosion-Hazardous Areas

The range of RFID applications is by no means limited to discrete manufacturing—it is also becoming increasingly popular in process plants due to the ever more extensive requirements for marking product and work equipment. However, explosion protection requirements often have to be taken into account, because wherever flammable gases, vapors or dusts are generated, electrical equipment poses a significant safety risk.

In this blog article, you will gain insight into three application examples that will help you understand the successful and safe use of RFID in hazardous areas.

RFID Fuels Industry 4.0

RFID Fuels Industry 4.0

RFID is a key enabler for future-proof digital factories in the sense of Industry 4.0: when a product is marked with an RFID tag it stores information about necessary production steps or special requirements. More than that, it can store new, additional information when the production steps have been completed. Attaching RFID tags to production items introduces dynamic structures and flexibility to all areas of manufacturing. Get additional information on technology for Industry 4.0 by Pepperl+Fuchs—labeled as "Sensorik4.0®".
