Its ISO 15693 functionality makes the RF300 system also suitable for use in applications which only need simple types of transponders with little memory, such as the inexpensive MDS D100 and D124 ISO 15693 tags.
The D324 and D160 tags in the Moby D product line have data capacities ranging from twenty bytes to one kilobyte. These are typically used in applications with central data storage in manufacturing industries, such as the automotive industry and its suppliers, and baggage handling systems, such as those in airports.
Simatic RF310R and RF380R readers are also suitable for use with more advanced tags in the RF300 transponder range. These have larger data capacities and facilitate particularly fast data communication between reader and transponder.
The mode of operation is easily switched in the Step7 program by changing the parameters in function blocks, so that the readers at the air interface can either communicate in the high-performance "RF300 protocol" mode, as before, or under the ISO 15693 protocol.
Already available standard communication modules are used to integrate these readers into PC applications or an automated system with Simatic, Profibus and Profinet. The Simatic RF380R reader has an additional RS232 interface which enables it to be connected directly to another manufacturer's control system or a PC - without needing an interface converter. The next devices to be equipped with ISO 15693 functionality will be the RF340R and RF350R readers and the RF310M mobile handheld terminal.

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.
The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...
Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
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...
