New RFID transponder with large memory and a mobile handheld reader

31.03.2015
  • RFID transponder with large memory for production and logistics
  • FRAM technology supports any number of write operations at high speeds
  • Mobile read/write device for reliable data acquisition in logistics and service applications

Siemens is expanding its RFID product range, Simatic RF600, with new transponders that have considerably greater memory capacities and a compact mobile read/write device. With a capacity of 4 KB, the new UHF RFID data carriers, RF622T and RF622L, enable large volumes of data to be stored on tagged objects as well as facilitating rapid access to them.


Siemens is expanding its RFID product range, Simatic RF600, with new transponders that have considerably greater memory capacities and a compact and powerful mobile read/write device.

They are therefore ideally suited to use in distributed configurations for example in the fields of production control, asset management and intra-logistics. Siemens is also launching the new mobile handheld reader, Simatic RF650M. This enables reliable identification of a large number of transponders at a range of up to three meters. The device is specially designed for logistics and service applications.

The FRAM memory technology (ferroelectric random access memory) of the Simatic RF622T and RF622L transponders enables high-speed writing as well as an unlimited number of write cycles. Simatic RF622L is a cost-efficient smart label which is ideally suited to the permanent identification of products. It can be individually printed from a roll, for example with plain text or additional optical codes.

In contrast, the robust and hardened RF622T transponder has been designed for fixing to pallets or containers. It can be attached to metal surfaces with the optional spacer. The dimensions of the RF622T transponder are 120 x 30 x 6,5 mm, and those of the RF622L smart label are 90 x 18 x 0,5 mm. With a range of up to three meters, both offer long reading distances.

The handheld reader, Simatic RF650M, features a color touch display with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, a rugged keypad and a large trigger button. These ensure reliable and user-friendly operation. To save space, users can fold down the RFID antenna. The device dimensions of only 147 x 60 x 39 mm mean it can easily be carried in a pocket and its low weight of only 235 g, including the rechargeable battery, allows fatigue-free use over long periods.

The battery has a life of up to nine hours, ensuring that the device is supplied with power for at least the length of one shift. Users can also create their own applications for the device based on the Microsoft Windows Embedded operating system. For servicing work, the supplied RFID software can also be used for reading and writing from and to transponders. This means that transponders are easy to read or reprogram for test purposes, during maintenance work for example.

The Simatic RF600 range is particularly suited to identification applications in production and logistics in which cost-effective data carriers with a long range are required. Siemens also presented a new reader generation as an expansion to the Simatic RF600 family in October 2014.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
