RFID read/write head for ATEX Zone 1/21

20 May 2021

The Turck TN-R42/TC-Ex is believed to be the only HF RFID read/write head certified for direct use in ATEX Zone 1/21.

The read/write head stands out from flameproof identification solutions for Zone 1/21 on account of its extremely compact dimensions allowing its use in space restricted applications. 

The slim-line TN-R42/TC-Ex is suited to the contactless identification of correct hose and flange connections in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. 

The interface connection of the TN-R42/TC-Ex operates like a standard read/write head for the safe area. HF RFID tags with a password function are also available for applications with demanding requirements with regard to data security and access protection.

The read/write head is connected to Turck's BL20 or TBEN RFID interface series and can also be installed in protective housings in Zone 2/22 if required. It can also process other information in addition to hose identification, such as socket, data, time or the degree of hose contamination. Turck's multiprotocol technology enables data transfer to the control system via three Ethernet protocols – Profinet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP.
