  • Page 31: Application Areas Of Rf300

    System overview 3.2 SIMATIC RF300 3.2.3 Application areas of RF300 SIMATIC RF300 is primarily used for non-contact identification of containers, palettes and workpiece holders in a closed production circuit. The data carriers (transponders) remain in the production chain and are not supplied with the products. SIMATIC RF300, with its compact transponder and reader enclosure dimensions, is particularly suitable in confined spaces.
  • Page 32: System Configuration

    System overview 3.3 System configuration System configuration 3.3.1 Overview The SIMATIC RF300 system is characterized by a high level of standardization of its components. This means that the system follows the TIA principle throughout: Totally Integrated Automation. It provides maximum transparency at all levels with its reduced interface overhead.
  • Page 33 System overview 3.3 System configuration The entire production order that is saved on the transponder can also be read manually via the WIN-LC terminal located at each workstation. This means that virtually no additional data management is required on the control computer. The production order data can also be read for servicing purposes via the mobile SIMATIC RF350M reader.

    System overview 3.3 System configuration 3.3.3 Example of container and cardboard container handling: Use of ISO transponders Containers of varying sizes are conveyed to picking workstations in a delivery center. There, the individual goods are removed and packed in cartons according to the delivery note. These cartons are marked with low-cost transponder labels and sorted to small or large packaging workstations (according to the delivery note) by being guided or transported via the corresponding conveyor system.
