Turck Launches Q300 and Q180 UHF RFID Readers for Logistics & Factory Automation

Solution helps break down the limits between HF and UHF, ensuring flexiblity

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (March 1, 2023) – Turck has introduced the Q300 and Q180 UHF RFID readers. The Q300 and Q180 are standalone Ethernet readers that allow connections of 4 external UHF antennas and have an integrated CODESYS runtime.  The option to connect external near field antennas directly to the UHF read/write head enables the Q300 to also be used in conventional HF areas, such as for the optimal detection of components or workpiece carriers.

With variants for a Codesys, Linux or OPC UA platform, the Q300 and Q180 solutions are ideal for both IT and OT applications, ensuring flexible use. Software can be integrated and run directly on the Q300 and Q180. Using an often-expensive industrial PC is no longer necessary as these solutions can communicate directly with ERP systems or other Ethernet stations. They are rated IP67, multiprotocol for multiple platform use and are easy to set up thanks to web-based configuration of RFID parameters.

  • Web-based configuration of the RFID parameters, and read testing tools for ease of use •
  • Multiprotocol to move data easily to different PLCs
  • IP67 housing for industrial environments, no cabinet required
  • Internal antenna with switchable polarization (Q300 only), and 4 external passive UHF antenna connections ensures flexibility
