IDENTControl Compact RFID controllers

IDENTControl Compact RFID controllersThe IDENTControl Compact offers one- and two-head RFID controller solutions to complement the companyís family of four-head IDENTControl RFID controllers. IDENTControl Compact delivers the same easy-to-use software features and robust operation as the companyís four-head solutions but in a compact housing four times smaller, and enables users to connect all read/write heads, even with different frequency ranges, to a single control interface. The one- and two-head RFID controllers have a new design suited for smaller panels that require only one or two heads, while providing a more distributed RFID control system for larger installations. Read heads can come back to their own controller rather than be consolidated into four-head controller blocks. These Ethernet controllers have additional features including two onboard Ethernet connectors with a built-in switch. This allows for multiple Ethernet topologies including linear, star, and ring. Ring topologies are especially interesting because they incorporate media redundancy. If the ring is broken for whatever reason the communication path is rerouted to keep the system up and running. The same controller supports all common Industrial Ethernet protocols, including Ethernet/IP, PROFINET, Modbus/TCP, and TCP/IP. Buy one model and all protocols, customers, and applications are covered. IDENTControl Compact is especially suitable for use in small assembly lines, specialty machine, and AGV applications.
