RFID components and their function
RF300 system components
A communication module (interface module) is used to integrate the RF identification system in
The reader (read/write device) ensures inductive communication, supplies power to the transponder,
and handles the connection to the various PLCs (e.g. SIMATIC S7) through the communication module
(e.g. ASM 475).
The transponder (data memory) stores all data relevant to the production process and is used, for
example, instead of barcode.
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.
