Sick Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)


Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) – HF (13,56 MHz) & UHF (860-960 MHz)

Radio-based RFID technologies in the HF (high frequencey) and UHF (ultra high frequency) ranges supplement SICK's industrial automation portfolio. In applications where  process-relevant data is modified remotely, RFID makes it possible to store data on writable and rewriteable media. And, in contrast to optical solutions, RFID provides reliable identification of all objects – despite dirt and everyday wear.
