The readers of the Simatic RF200 system are designed as solutions for the low to mid-performance range and expand Siemens' existing RFID offering. The two compact readers RF210R and RF220R are designed for short ranges of up to 20 mm and 30 mm. They have a cylindrical design with thread diameters of 18 mm (RF210R) and 30 mm (RF220R) and a length of approx. 70 mm.
The RF260R reader of rectangular design with the dimensions 75 x 75 x 40 can be used for ranges up to 130 mm. The readers of the Simatic RF200 system are suitable for assembly and handling systems, or for small assembly lines for the identification of workpiece carriers. Further applications include production logistics and intralogistics for tasks such as material flow control or the identification of containers. The new readers are also suitable for materials handling systems with electric monorail systems, automatic guided vehicles, or palletizing systems where the transponders are secured on products or pallets.
Just like all other RFID systems from Siemens, the Simatic RF200 system can also be integrated simply and uniformly into automation systems such as Simatic or Simotion using predefined S7 function blocks FC45/FB45 and a comprehensive range of communication modules for Profibus, Profinet or also Ethernet TCP/IP and further bus systems. This significantly simplifies commissioning, diagnostics and maintenance.
The Siemens Industry Automation Division offers a comprehensive product portfolio for industrial identification with the name Simatic Ident. Siemens has been developing RFID systems for production and logistics for the last 25 years and is the market leader in Europe with more than 300,000 installed RFID read/write devices. The company offers numerous components for a wide range of industrial sectors and purposes. These include read/write devices, antennas, mobile data tags, software, and also consulting and design. The RFID portfolio so far comprises: Simatic RF300, the compact and powerful RFID system in the HF range, and Simatic RF600, the powerful RFID system in the UHF range. In addition to RFID systems, the Simatic Ident range also includes optical code reader systems for detection of 1D codes (barcode), 2D codes – such as data matrix codes (DMC) – and OCR (optical character recognition).

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
