The Cylindrical Reader M30 UHF is a read and write device from the iDTRONIC BLUEBOX line.
The reader now utilizes CANbus connection (SAE J1939 or CANopen) to enhance the existing RS-232 and RS-485 interfaces.
► INTERFACE OPTIONS FOR VARIOUS CONNECTIONS
The reader has a variety of interface solutions for easy integration into existing systems. The RS-232 COM interface is a serial port ideally suited for connection to monitors, POS terminals, measuring instruments, or printers. The RS-485 interface is an asynchronous serial connection for data communication over long distances. It is a bidirectional bus system that may be operated with up to 128 devices on one bus.
The Cylindrical Reader M30 UHF is now available with the additional CANbus (SAE J1939 or CANopen) interface option. The serial CANbus system enables data exchange between several control units. This has applications in motor vehicles, shipping, or air freight. This interface eliminates the need for long cables. The SAE J1939 network protocol is used for the transmission of diagnostic data and control information. The CANopen connection is a communication protocol which is mainly used in automation processes. Complex devices may be networked with it.
The antenna has a strength of -8 dBi, achieving a high reading range of up to 50 centimetres.
The reader is standard equipped with the UHF frequency 865 - 868 MHz (ETSI). Optionally, the reader may also be operated with an FCC frequency of 902 - 928 MHz. Both frequencies support the ISO 18000-6C standard (EPC Class 1 Generation 2) with Alien Higgs 2/3/4, Impinj Monza, NXP UCODE tags, as well as many more.
A user-friendly software development kit (SDK) and configuration tool, for Windows operating systems,
are provided as well as an operating system-independent command protocol.
Further adjustments to the firmware and hardware are possible on request and project basis.
Construction site vehicles require a variety of additional equipment to meet the requirements of the modern construction industry. Thanks to the cylindrical design of the reader and the IP67 protection class, the reader is ideally suited for the requirements of such harsh environments. In addition to its resistance to environmental influences, the simple integration of the existing CANbus interface was also considered during development. Thanks to the standardized interface and UHF technology, the attachments may be identified and adjusted immediately.
The demands of a fast harvest with high yields increase from year to year in the agricultural industry. Thanks to modern technology, today's agricultural vehicles can take on a variety of tasks and thus meet these ever-demanding requirements. However, due to the multitude of possibilities, the systems are also becoming more and more complex. Automated identification systems should take over the configuration of the various attachments so that users do not require extensive training to operate the vehicles. An important component for this is iDTRONIC's BLUEBOX Cylindrical Reader M30 UHF. Thanks to the standardized UHF RFID (ISO18000-6C / EPC Class 1 Generation 2) transmission standard and a reading range of up to 50cm, the various tools can be identified easily.
