SIMATIC RF600 New Generation – Well-Thought-Out Devices with Cutting-Edge Technology

What makes the latest generation of our RFID RF600 devices stand out? The highest quality. The most up-to-date technology. And an intelligent concept. Our three new RF600 devices are customized precisely to your needs: The well-priced basic device is particularly suitable for logistics applications. Our solution with an integrated PROFINET interface was specially developed for automation environments. And the high-end solution with a variable-polarization antenna makes even highly complex applications transparent and traceable.


RF650R – Efficiency for Logistics Applications

RF650R is a well-priced basic device that is particularly suitable for use in logistics. It stands out thanks to its:

  • Economy
    You can connect up to four external antennas to the well-priced RF650R basic device. This enables efficient implementation of extensive systems, i.e. in distribution warehouses.

  • IT Integration
    Thanks to the integrated RJ45 Ethernet interface and XML protocol, the RF650R can be quickly and easily integrated into existing IT environments.

RF680R – the System for Automation Environments

Rely on a system that is extremely flexible and adaptable. The RF680R’s impressive features include the following:

  • Diagnosis On-Location
    The extended LED display of the RF680R displays all important information, and the second PROFINET interface saves on additional adapters or Switches.

  • Integration into Automation and IT
    Thanks to the integrated PROFINET interface, RF680R devices can be connected without additional interface modules. This means that you remain flexible in terms of plant engineering.

RF685R - Optimized Solution for the Most Demanding Applications

Reliable operation even in the most demanding environment. Major highlights of the RF685R include:

  • Integrated Antenna
    The antenna in the RF685R provides for variable polarization. In other words: You have greater freedom in project planning. Since the antenna can also adapt automatically, its reliability increases in operational use, i.e. when reading and writing tags.

  • High-Quality Radio Chip
    This interacts optimally with the integrated, adaptive antenna. It also reduces the effort for system planning and implementation.

RF650A – powerful in logistics applications

Combined with the reader Rf650R the new antenna SIMATIC RF650A provides a cost effective system for logistics applications.

  • High degree of protection (IP65)

  • Compact diemensions (198 x 198 x 60 cm)

  • Frequency range 865-928 MHz

  • Compatible with read/write devices SIMATIC RF650R, RF680R and RF685R

RF680A – for demanding wireless environments

The new adaptive high-end antenna SIMATIC RF680A achieves the highest read rates even in demanding wireless environments.

The antenna SIMATIC RF680A allows a simplified project planning since in the planning phase the polarization of the antenna no longer needs to be taken into account. In addition to this reliable identification is ensured even in demanding wireless environments. A further plus: The large integrated LED display that allows fast and detailed diagnostics of the acquisition and error status per antenna.

  • Fast configuration due to automatic detection of the antenna

  • Automatic polarization adaptation

  • Large integrated LED display

  • High degree of protection (IP65) and compact dimensions (198 x 198 x 60 cm)

  • Frequency range 865-928 MHz

  • Compatible with read/write devices SIMATIC RF650R, RF680R und RF685R
