Simatic RF620R is equipped with an integrated UHF antenna and up to two external UHF antennas can be connected to the Simatic RF630R. With Simatic RF communication modules, the devices can be integrated directly into Simatic S7 as well as Profinet/Profibus communication networks.
For this purpose, standard function blocks are available for the Step 7 engineering software. The two stationary readers from the Simatic RF600 family can be installed in constricted spaces thanks to their compact design and they can be used in harsh industrial environments due to the high degree of protection (IP65). The new devices are capable of reliable selective "tag" identification and secure data communication.
They are suitable for directly identifying objects at short to medium write/read distances of up to three meters. The main application areas of the readers are applications using Simatic automation technology and transponders according to the standards EPC Gen2 and ISO 18000-6C. These applications are typically found in production control, material handling control and in tracking and tracing.
The new readers now allow the setting up of process chains which are completely equipped with UHF technology according to ISO and EPC standards, from goods receipt, through production, to goods issue.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
