With the IUR-F800-V1D-4A*, Pepperl+Fuchs is expanding its RFID portfolio with a new UHF reader for connecting external antennas, especially for use in gate applications in logistics.

For more than three decades, Pepperl+Fuchs has been offering reliable RFID systems for industrial use. In factory automation, these systems are mainly operated with programmable logic controllers to ensure secure processes and transparency in production.

The new UHF RFID disk/reader IUR-F800-V1D-4A* expands Pepperl+Fuchs' range to enable comprehensive transparency in logistics applications that connect to production. Based on proven and internationally standardized UHF technology (ISO 18000-63 or EPC Class 1 Gen 2), the IUR-F800-V1D-4A* enables a cost-efficient setup of RFID gates thanks to the ability to connect up to four external antennas.

These RFID gates enable the rapid, simultaneous detection of large quantities of transponders during transit, for example during the automated inspection of packages in incoming and outgoing goods and during transport between storage and production areas. The information obtained can be seamlessly integrated into existing backend systems such as ERP or MES, thus enabling maximum transparency along the entire value chain.

Various antenna types are available for optimal adaptation to the respective application. The powerful UHF reader also enables writing and reading over longer distances. In addition, the reader has additional inputs and outputs, for example for connecting sensors or external signal lights. Clearly visible LEDs provide additional information about the current operating status. Both the IUR-F800-V1D-4A* and the associated antennas are designed in robust housings for demanding operating conditions.
