Compact RFID System in the HF Range


SIMATIC RF200 is the new, compact RFID system in the SIMATIC RF product family. The product series consists of cost-efficient HF readers which are particularly suitable for applications in intralogistics and small assembly lines. The SIMATIC RF200 RFID readers support exclusively the RFID standard ISO 15693 and are therefore intended for use with the comprehensive MOBY D range of transponders. As part of our complete portfolio of identification systems, SIMATIC RF200 offers a compact entry-level system for applications in the lower to medium performance range. The new SIMATIC RF210R, RF220R and RF260R readers with the interface variant for IO-Link are available for simple identification tasks. In the new, improved versions the readers are now also able to read and write within the IO-Link environment.

Typical areas of application

  • Assembly and handling systems, assembly lines (identification of workpiece carriers), particularly small assembly lines

  • Production logistics (material flow control, identification of containers and other vessels), intralogistics

  • Parts identification (transponder is attached to product/pallet)

  • Conveyor technology (e.g. electric monorail systems)


  • Flexible and economical solutions due to scalable complete portfolio in the field of industrial identification:
    - Price-optimized and compact, space-saving components
    - Operation with the inexpensive and battery-free ISO 15693 MOBY D transponders

  • Simplified engineering, commissioning, diagnostics and maintenance thanks to seamless integration in Totally Integrated Automation:
    - Integrated bus connection to the automation system, e.g. SIMATIC, SIMOTION or SINUMERIK, via communication modules with PROFIBUS and PROFINET
    - Easy S7 software integration by means of convenient function blocks
    - Integrated diagnostic functionality due to error reporting to the S7 via function blocks
    -Extremely simple commissioning without any programming overheads using IO Link

  • High investment protection thanks to:
    - Open standard ISO 15693
    - Software compatibility between the RFID systems of Siemens AG
    - Standardized communication interfaces

  • Openness due to connection possibilities to different bus systems from various manufacturers and PC environments by means of communication modules or IO Link and RS232 interface variants

  • Worldwide service and support

  • IO Link variant
