Auto ID with UHF RFID and sensor data form the basis for enhanced automation technology. But how does the information get into the ERP or the Cloud? Easily, with RFID solutions from HARTING: via W-LAN, 3G/4G (LTE) and a Bluetooth interface. Based on its own extremely robust MICA® edge computing system, HARTING’s new Ha-VIS RF-R3x0 RFID reader family sets the bar higher in terms of flexibility and interoperability. With M12 circular connectors and pressure-cast aluminum housing, these RFID readers leave nothing to be desired when it comes to robustness. Thanks to IP67 and a special product testing and approval procedure in the HARTING Group’s certified and independent laboratory, there are no more obstacles to tool recognition by an injection-molding machine or platform detection in a tram system. As an alternative to wired Ethernet communication, the reader family is also available with W-LAN 3G/4G (LTE) and a Bluetooth, making it even easier to integrate and use the UHF RFID technology in a wide range of applications.
