SICK RFID for Smarter Everything
Wherever you are in the world. Maybe you need better security. Or you are looking for ways to improve production quality. It has become critical to ensure correct labor. You have food products that have to pass legal requirements? Whatever your production needs are you can obtain complete RFID system solutions unique to your needs. And what if your requirements change? No problem. Thanks to modular architecture and SICK’s 4D pro concept, their systems are ﬂexible and can be expanded and adapted to any new task.
RFID is particularly well suited to harsh ambient conditions, such as extreme temperatures or identiﬁcation objects under high levels of physical stress. By comparison, optical technologies require visual contact at all times in order to detect the code and are therefore more susceptible to wear or contamination.
- No visual contact with the RFID tag required
- Omnidirectional reading
- Reliable use under harsh ambient conditions
- Large distances between reader and object possible
- Short reading cycles and possibility of bulk reading
- Rewritable RFID tags and large storage capacity
SEAMLESS DATA INTEGRATION
Open, cloud-based systems enable maximum process ﬂexibility and real-time process control. For this purpose, data is processed directly in the sensor into usable information for higher level systems. RFID devices from SICK can be integrated into the most common ﬁeldbus networks at the machine control level using function blocks and simultaneously connected to applications at company level and to the cloud via Ethernet. As a result, the devices ﬁt seamlessly into existing systems and are prepared for future tasks in Industry 4.0.
CONTINUOUS IDENTIFICATION WITH ONE TECHNOLOGY
Seamless process transparency as well as traceability of components and products along the entire value chain are becoming increasingly important. Until now, this has required the use of several technologies: LF and HF RFID solutions for the short range as well as UHF solutions for mid-range and long ranges. With its UHF product family, SICK now oﬀers consistent and cross-company identiﬁcation solutions.
