Radio Communication Devices

Industrial Wireless Systems

Intelligent wireless communication systems and its components with real-time communication, such as RFID or wireless IO-Links, are also more and more being used in Industry 4.0 to optimize automation processes. These wireless systems are heavily stressed in industrial environments and are exposed to a wide variety of conditions, such as metal environments, temperature fluctuations or other environmental influences and torsional forces. The reliability, latency and transmission rate requirements of these industrial systems are therefore subject to the highest demands.

To provide your customers with flawless technology and transparency, we run your products and solutions through numerous regulatory tests and audits based on specific directives to ensure compliance for commercialization.

RFID System & IO-Link Wireless

RFID stands for "Radio Frequency Identification" and means an intelligent system for industry automation using electromagnetic fields and radio frequency tranmissions. Objects and products can be clearly assigned and also tracked with the help of this technology, and the transparency of the respective production steps is ensured in this way.

The application areas of RFID systems are countless from identification and monitoring of living beings and objects, recall control and anti-piracy to access control, sensor technology and payment systems.

RFID systems are often used together with wireless IO-Link network modules to evaluate the data. An IO-Link Wireless is a brand name and at the same time the first international standardised IO technology (IEC 61131-9) for the communication with sensors and also actuators to set up intelligent solutions for industrial automation. IO stands for Input-Output and enables the end-to-end communication and digital data transmission between wireless IO-Link devices and sensors.

Frequently Asked Questions

All you need to know about intelligent communication technology

What does Industry 4.0 mean?

Industry 4.0 is the name given to a future project for the comprehensive digitalization of industrial production in order to better equip it for the future. It refers to the intelligent networking of machines and processes in industry with the aid of information and communication technology.

Why is Industry 4.0 so important?

Digitization and Industry 4.0 enable completely new organizational and control options for the entire supply chain. Production is becoming significantly more dynamic, efficient and individualized. This will result in enormous growth opportunities for Germany as a business location.

How does a RFID-system work?

RFID is the contactless exchange of data between an RFID transponder and an RFID reader device. For data transmission, the RFID reader builds up a magnetic or electromagnetic field that supplies the passive RFID transponder with energy. As long as the RFID transponder is in the electromagnetic field of the RFID reader, it is supplied with energy and data can be exchanged. Information can be read from the chip of the RFID transponder, but new data can also be stored on the chip.

How does an IO-Link Wireless work?

An wireless IO-Link is actually an automated communication system in which sensors and actuators are integrated. The individual components of the system are called IO-Link master (control unit) and IO devices (sensors, actuators). The master receives and processes signals that it obtains from the sensors and actuators. The communication is based on the proven 3-wire connection method. Additional cable material is not necessary.

What are the advantages of an IO-Link Wireless?

The advantages of an IO-Link Wireless are flexibility and responsiveness with a transmission rate of 1 byte/5ms as well as reliability with a maximum packet data error rate of 10⁻⁹. Furthermore a scalability is possible by integrating up to 40 IO-Link devices. And obove all, with IO-Link Wireless, there is the integrity of an international standard.

What are the application areas of the IO-Link Wireless?

One of the application areas of IO-Link Wireless are robots, robot arms and transport systems. Others include upgrading your existing machinery and equipment. Even in harsh environments such as food processing or welding, wireless automation ensures reliable control of your machines and systems.
