Compact IP67 Ethernet/RFID interfaces 20/01/2017
Turck has recently introduced the compact TBEN-L-RFID and TBEN-S-RFID Ethernet/RFID interfaces with protection to IP67. These I/O modules are said to simplify the direct RFID integration of HF or UHF read/write heads. Full Story...

Efficient control cabinet monitoring 23/06/2015
A new cabinet condition monitor from Turck is said to offer the ability to continuously monitor the relevant ambient variables inside control cabinets.  Full Story...

Sensitive Weightlifters 28/03/2010
Often we think of RFID for keeping track of automobiles or containers that travel though the manufacturing process. But the technology is readily adaptable to many other kinds of solutions. In this steel mill example, RFID keeps track of the position of a huge ladle as it carries hundreds of tons of molten steel on an overhead crane system. Full Story...

RFID tags now have onboard sensor functionality 12/01/2010
Turck extends its RFID system, BL ident, with new data carriers that combine memory space for RFID applications with integrated proximity switch and temperature sensor functionality. Full Story...

At Hannover Fair: The Latest in Proximity Sensors 23/06/2009
It was over 50 years ago that two radio engineers, Walter Pepperl and Wilfried Gehl, were commissioned by BASF to find an alternative to mechanical contact switches. The challenge was to develop a robust component that would operate reliably after many thousands of cycles at very low currents, in the corrosive atmosphere of a chemical plant. What they came up with was the first inductive proximity switch, and their company Pepperl+Fuchs has gone on to become a leader in the technology. Full Story...

Industrial RFID antennae have significantly improved ranges 10/12/2008
Turck has extended its RFID system, called “BL ident,” with new active UHF read-write heads that allows transmission ranges to be increased up to three metres. This is an order-of-magnitude increase over the previous read/write distances of a few centimetres, obtained with much lower frequencies. Full Story...

RFID brings automation, business systems together 23/10/2008
The integration of business systems with factory floor automation is a challenge with many aspects to consider. However, one bright spot is clearly visible: RFID information technology, which helps bridge the gap. Full Story...
