Sick - RFU630
Integrated UHF RFID Reader/Writer

The RFU630 is an ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID intelligent reader/writer for industrial environments. With integrated application management software, the RFU630 is suitable for common industrial applications without the need for external “middleware” and can be used to develop standalone solution. This is possible due to an integrated filter and data management system.

The RFU630 is an industry-oriented compact device with an integrated antenna and the capacity to connect up to three external antennas if required, and can read industry standards EPcglobal and ISO/IEC 18000-6C RFID tags.

With IDpro compatibility, the RFU630 is easy and cost-efficient to integrate in common industrial environments. The integrated feedback LED can be used to read diagnostic or process feedback. Thanks to the IDpro platform the RFU630 can easily be integrated into customary factory and logistics automation fieldbus levels. The SOPAS user interface makes it possible to quickly and flexibly adapt the device to necessary application-specific tasks.

The RFU630 UHF-RFID system make it suitable for diverse applications from solving tasks in factory automation such as identification or distribution of car body parts, to logistics automation involving pallet identification or yard logistics.

Furthermore, the robust industrial design allows the use with forklift trucks and for indoor or outdoor areas.
