Balluff has released BIS VU-320 UHF reader. This reader adds Ultrahigh (UHF) capabilities to the BIS V multichannel processor which can now accept readers in the Low(LF), High(HF), and Ultrahigh(UHF) Frequencies. In addition, all three frequencies can operate simultaneously.
The VU-320, is built to withstand manufacturing environments with its IP67 rating. Four highly-visible LEDs simplify the trouble shooting process, eliminating the need to access a webserver or PLC to determine if a tag is being read or if the antenna is sending a signal. Because the VU-320 is a part of the BIS V portfolio, it can communicate via Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet/IP, CC-Link, Ethercat and TCP/IP. A full line of mounting accessories and connection cables is available, as well.
Balluff recently began fulfilling orders in North America and Europe on the BIS VU-320 UHF reader.
