The TURCK BLident is the world’s first modular RFID system with built-in I/O capability. With BLident, users may add additional I/O modules to the RFID system: up to 8 channels of RFID, plus additional discrete or analog I/O comprise a single node on the network. Built on the ISO15693 13.56MHz HF standard, BLident can be integrated into existing platforms and supports PROFIBUS®-DP, DeviceNet™, Modbus-TCP, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP™. Standard non-programmable gateways and CoDeSys programmable gateways are available with either IP 20 or IP 67 protection rating.
BLident data carriers are available in a variety of different shapes with read/write intervals between 5 to 500 mm. The data carriers use state-of-the-art FRAM storage technology for a virtually unlimited number of write operations. TURCK’s BLident system is also the first in the industry to introduce high temperature data carriers rated up to 210°C. Available in two space saving form factors, these data carriers require no cool-down time for read or write operations. Additionally, TURCK’s BLident RFID has the ability to read or write data simultaneously at 0.5 ms per byte, making BLident one of the fastest inductive RFID systems on the market. BLident is even capable of “on the fly” production speeds of 10 ms at distances up to 500mm. BLident is now compatible with TURCK’s BL67 modular distributed I/O system equipped with a Simple RFID (RFID-S) slice.
