RFID basic examples: SIMATIC RF600 via ASM456

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
SIMATIC RF600 readers are integrated via PROFIBUS into a control system via the ASM456 communication module. The S7 block “ident blocks" or “ident profile" are used to control this configuration.

Task
A SIMATIC RF600 reader is to be integrated via a PROFIBUS into a S7 control system. Basic RFID functionalities are to be realized via the reader. 

Solution
The ASM456 communication module was developed in order to connect the SIMATIC RFID readers via PROFIBUS to a S7 control system. To control the readers the S7 "Ident blocks" program blocks are used.
The basic example for this solution is kept very simple. The focus of this description is on the basic steps for the configuration and programming of the automation solution. The figure below shows the structural configuration of the solution:
