Siemens adds new antenna and transponder to its RFID portfolio

Nuremberg, Germany. Siemens has added two new devices to its RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) system Simatic RF600: firstly, the highly compact RF615A antenna with linear antenna polarization, and secondly the rugged, passive and maintenance-free transponder RF645T based on UHF Class 1 Gen 2 technology in compliance with ISO standard 18000-63. Both the antenna and the transponder are equipped for use in harsh industrial environments with an exceptionally high degree of protection. 
The Simatic RF615A antenna for the Siemens UHF (Ultra High Frequency) system Simatic RF600 features a particularly compact design (52 x 52 x 16 mm) and is suitable for a wide range of industrial applications across the fields of production and logistics. It can be mounted either on metallic or non-metallic surfaces and provides a read/write range of up to 1.3 meters. Its linear polarization and high signal attenuation also help to reduce the impact of reflections and overreach. The Simatic RF615A is connected to RF600 readers by a pre-assembled globally available 
antenna connecting cable. 

Maintenance-free, versatile and uncomplicated
The transponder RF645T is rugged, passive and maintenance-free. It comes with a large 448-bit EPC (Electronic Product Code) and 2.048-bit user memory. It can be mounted directly on any type of metallic surface. By gluing or fixing using a mounting cover or bracket, it can be used to permanently identify tools or containers. Its read/write range extends up to a distance of six meters. The transponder is ideally suited for use in production, service and logistics in production control, supply chain management and asset management as well as tracking & tracing.
