RFID UHF Read/Write Head from Pepperl + Fuchs– the most compact reader in its class

Pepperl+Fuchs has expanded its extensive portfolio of industrial identification devices with the IUT-F190-B40 UHF RFID Read/Write Head, featuring 1000mW ERP transmitting power, integrated Industrial Ethernet interface and REST API. Easily integrated into IT systems using the REST API, this versatile UHF read/write head can be fully parameterised and operated via this interface, eliminating the need for PLC programming.

The IUT-F190 also has two inputs and one output, meaning light barriers can be connected directly, making it possible to start and stop the read operation or to detect throughput direction with no additional IO components required. Using the output, a signal light can indicate that the read/write head is ready for operation or that an operation was successful.

Quick and Easy Integration

Designed for medium detection ranges (around 2 meters), the IUT-F190-B40 utilises Industrial Ethernet and REST API technologies allowing it to be quickly and easily integrated into OT and IT systems, an ideal solution for industry 4.0 production control and monitoring & track-and-trace applications. In addition, the integrated web interface of the IUT-F190-B40-UHF can be used for parameterisation and commissioning and when used with the Pepperl + Fuchs IDENTControl Control Interface (enquire for details)  it is possible to connect up to 4 read/write heads at the same time, prebuilt function blocks make installation easy and provides connectivity to several standard fieldbuses and has excellent EMC immunity.

Robust and durable, the IUT- F190-B40 features an IP67 rated PA housing and has a wide temperature range making it suitable for use in numerous demanding industrial environments. Based on UHF RFID technology, this read/write head achieves high read ranges and detection speeds and supports multi-tag reading. The large number of radio approvals and bus interfaces means that the F190 can be used globally.

Compact Design

The built-in, automatically switchable antenna polarisation provides reliable identification even when the tag orientation is inconsistent or unknown. The compact housing (114x112x63 mm) with integrated antenna makes this capable read/write head suitable for installation in confined spaces without compromising on range & transmission power. Emitting 1000 mW ERP makes the IUT-F190-B40 the top of its performance class and is an ideal stand alone solution for a wide range of industrial processing tasks.
