Turck’s industrial UHF and HF RFID readers can be connected to both, IT systems (MES, ERP) and production control units with the same interfaces. OPC UA, Modbus TCP, PROFINET and Ethernet IP are available. The reader can also be connected to PLC systems without special function modules.
Reader configuration is Web-based, a test environment is performed for easier start-up, and a direct connection of the reader (i.e., of the read/write heads) to the cloud is possible. Readers can be programmed on Linux or with the CoDeSys software package, with:
- V3 programming according to IEC 61131-3
- V3 PLC Runtime
- OPC-UA Server
