Connecting RFID to the cloud

25 March 2018

With the launch of new firmware release V3, the Simatic RF600 RFID system now supports OPC UA

The new firmware allows devices to be connected to MindSphere, Siemens’ cloud-based open Internet of Things (IoT) operating system.

Simatic RF600 is the first RFID system that supplies data to MindSphere. Linking the RFID system to the cloud opens up exciting new scope for the use of data captured from RFID transponders – such as the registration and tracking of containers, pallets or products fitted with an RFID transponder.

The captured data can be analysed and made available worldwide, due to the web based concept, creating transparency in terms of key performance indicators (KPI’s) such as plant availability, utilisation of assets or energy-saving potential. This will allow the targeted optimisation of production processes and supply chains with a view to improving efficiency and quality in production, logistics, asset management and other areas.
