This 125 KHz product line is not interchangeable with our 148 KHz R3 Solutions. This 2nd generation product is based on the same rugged proven technology as that of our R3 (R cubed) family of RFID solutions with the following enhancements:

 

  • Dozens of Tag styles
  • Operates at Standard (ISO approved) 125 KHz frequency
  • Smaller Reader packages, OEM level PCB packages
  • 7 to 28 VDC power requirements
  • Reader protocol outputs of DeviceNet, P rofibus, Modbus, Ethernet, Discrete I/O, RS485, and standard Serial

The R cubed products primarily serve applications of:

  • Tote/Pallet/Carrier ID of Widgets thru Processes
  • Wafer Identification thru Manufacturing
  • Mold/Tool Identification
  • Automated Guided Vehicles
  • Appliance Shells/Vehicle Body Parts thru Bake Ovens
  • Gas Cylinder Identification
  • Laundry Identification
  • Customer Loyalty Programs
  • Authentication/Verification
  • Products or Pallets in ASRS Systems
  • Employee ID, Access Control,
  • ID Prescriptions in Automated Pharmaceutical Systems
  • Mining Conveyor Belt Identification
  • Automated Airline Baggage Systems
  • Stacker/Reclaimer Systems in Mining
  • Identify/Track Rental Items

Certainly not limited to these applications, the R32 products excel at any industrial identification need where tough, 100% dependable systems are necessary. R cubed stands for Rapid, Robust and Reliable.

Reader Model numbers must be ordered with the suffix RO for Read Only or RW for Read Write dependent upon the style of Tag being ordered. The Tag specifications list whether a Tag is RO or RW.

For example, ordering Model 1764 Clear Laminate Flexible Disc Tag in a Read Only format you would have to specify Model 700xE-RO on your order (x being a variable to the exact Reader model number). Ordering Model 1764 Clear Laminate Flexible Disc Tag in a Read Write format you would have to specify Model 700xE-RW on your order.

You can always use a Read Write Tag in a Read Only application by simply not using the Write function, but cannot use a Read Only Tag in a Read Write application.

The “E” suffix stands for our standard NEMA 4X Enclosure. Drop the “E” to order Readers at an OEM PCB level. Add “EM” to order Readers in a metal enclosure. Add “IA” to have Internal Antenna Mounted to the lid of the Enclosure.

12′ of Antenna cable is standard. 19′ or 33′ of Antenna cable is also available but must be specified by adding the suffix -19 or -33. 19′ cable option garners 25% less read range, 33′ cable option garners 50% less read range, on average. Antenna cables may not be altered, cut down or added to, as they are a part of the overall tuned signal.

R3 Industrial Protocols Reader Specifications

Used in conjunction with our Smart Antennas, these solutions offer a fresh and unique approach. Smart Antennas actually have a portion of the RFID Reader circuitry installed in them thus providing the following advantages:

  1. Antenna cable can be twisted pair wiring of varying lengths.
  2. Up to 4 Antennas can be linked to a single Reader.
  3. Reduced circuitry at the Reader equates to more processing power, faster speeds.
  4. Because of the increased processing power, CAN has been added as the basis to network Readers.
Model 7060E ODVA DeviceNet Interface (1st quarter 2004)Model 7070E Profibus Interface (in stock) Model 7080E Modbus Interface (2nd quarter 2004 release)Model 7090E Remote I/O Interface (3rd quarter 2004 release)

All of these Readers follow the basic architecture as shown below. Ask for the product manual for detailed specifications.

Note: Antennas are automatically addressed when connected
