Fast Tag Detection at Warehouse Gates
Multiplex operation with external antennas on RFID UHF read/write head Q300
Multiplex operation for reliable recognition of tags
Turck's RFID UHF reader Q300 allows the connection of external passive antennas. The pre-programmable multiplex operation of the read/write head responds alternately to the antennas and thus ensures fast recognition of all tags on the pallets. They are reliably detected even when the forklift truck passes quickly and regardless of the position and distance of the tags to the read/write head.
The integrated I/Os of the Q300 allow direct connection of trigger signal heads or lights to signal the read status at the gate. To connect the entire gate, only one Ethernet cable needs to be routed to the gate. This minimizes the wiring effort and accelerates the installation of the RFID system.
On the Q300 with Linux or Windows operating system, middleware programs in the Net, C++ or C# languages can also be integrated directly on the read/write head. This eliminates the need for an IPC for the middleware.
