The BIS V Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system from Balluff is founded on a new generation of RFID processors that maximize flexibility by providing a single device for both low frequency 125 KHz and high frequency 13.56 MHz read/write heads with an IO-Link master port. Combining up to four head capability on both frequencies with local analog, valve manifold or I/O access/control, provides a solution to many types of RFID applications. This can save time and cost using a single processor platform across the application installation base.

The BIS V RFID system offers a higher level of performance than other systems to solve today’s industrial track and trace applications. Designed to maximize performance while improving usability out on the line, the BIS V processor provides a functional display and LED’s making status and setup easier. And a USB service interface makes connection for setup to today’s PC’s simple. The BIS V offers these additional functions:

  • Four asynchronous 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz read/write antenna channels
  • LCD display with control buttons for setting and displaying the network address and data carrier/tags UID
  • An integrated IO-Link master port for connecting discrete or analog I/O, or valve manifolds
  • Industrial IP 65 rated metal housing for almost any application environment
  • Intelligent power plug option for saving parameters on the device
  • Flexible mounting options for hard-point or DIN rail

Typical applications include combining multiple read/write heads with local I/O in tracking and traceability of material or parts in assembly line work in progress (WIP) applications, and inter-logistics in automotive, industrial equipment, electronics, medical and packaging.
