  • Page 16: Rf300 System Overview

    RF300 3.2.1 RF300 system overview SIMATIC RF300 is an inductive identification system specially designed for use in industrial production for the control and optimization of material flow. Thanks to its compact dimensions, RF300 is the obvious choice where installation conditions are restricted, especially for assembly lines, handling systems and workpiece carrier systems.
  • Page 17: 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 18: Rfid Components And Their Function

    The RF310R and RF340R readers are equipped with an integral antenna, whereas the RF350R reader is operated over an external antenna. In this system manual, the term "Reader" is used throughout even where it is actually referring to the antenna of the reader.
