Balluff's direct metal-mount RFID system features industrial track-and-trace capabilities

Balluff's direct metal-mount or “M-M” RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) system adds industrial track-and-trace capabilities to any manufacturing, assembly or closed-loop logistics process using non-contact, ISO 15693-compliant passive data carrier technology. This technology allows the RFID “tag” to be mounted directly to any alloy or metal surface without interference or loss of range.

Balluff’s M-M tags and heads offer a range of 52 to 65 millimeters regardless of the alloy content of the metal. The maintenance-free tags are designed to operate in temperatures ranging from -25 °C to 130 °C for up to 1,000 hours of continuous, idle exposure. There are two industrial head options to choose from, both designed for maximum read/write performance. One is a self-contained processor and read/write head with a built-in RS-232 serial interface. The other is a read/write head that can be connected to any of Balluff’s remote processors. Using a remote processor expands the system's communication options to include DeviceNet, Profibus, Ethernet/IP and TCP/IP, Modbus-IP or ProfiNet Ethernet bus.
