Containing two channels, a Simple RFID (RFID-S) slice from TURCK allows traditional discrete and analog I/O slices. The RFID-S slice does not require software for integration into a PLC system. The slice is compatible with BL20 non-programmable and programmable gateways, available for use on PROFIBUS-DP, PROFINET, DeviceNet, Modbus TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP networks. All RFID channels operate in parallel. The slice is designed with digitized communication, allowing up to a 50-meter separation between the transceiver and slice without noise induction.
