Combining up to four head capability on both frequencies with local analog, valve manifold or I/O access/control provides a solution for many types of RFID applications.  Time and money are saved using a single processor platform across the application installation base. The BIS V system also allows users to draw on a single processor family with a wide array of read/write head and RFID tag options for both manufacturing and logistics solutions.

The BIS V processor provides a functional display and LED¹s making status and setup easy.  A USB service interface makes connection for setup to PCs simple. The BIS V offers these additional functions: four asynchronous 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz read/write antenna channels; LCD display with control buttons for setting and displaying the network address and data carrier/tags UID; an integrated IO-Link master port for connecting discrete or analog I/O, or valve manifolds; industrial IP 65 rated metal housing; intelligent power plug option for saving parameters on the device; flexible mounting options for hard-point or DIN rail.
