The BIS M-4008 from Balluff is an all-in-one RFID reader with integrated processor. The 13.56 MHz reader with IP67 protection and a rugged die-cast zinc housing features a Profinet interface, needs no additional processor and can communicate directly with the control level.
The reader is a suitable choice wherever a lean solution is needed for detecting data carriers on workpieces and workpiece carriers at individual stations. Typical applications include material flow control in production facilities, conveying systems and assembly lines.
The device features an integrated 2-port Ethernet switch for constructing simple line- and ring topologies. An integrated webserver provides convenient status monitoring from a distance. Highly visible LEDs directly on the device also indicate status.
The new reader supports data carriers conforming with RFID standard ISO 15693.
