RFID read/write devices with ISO functionality

27.01.2009
Siemens´s Industry Automation Division has now redesigned its HF (high frequency) 13.56 megahertz range Simatic RF310R and RF380R RFID (radio frequency identification) read/write devices so that they can also work with ISO 15693 standard transponders (tags).

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.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
