RFID basic examples: SIMATIC RF200 via RF120C
A SIMATIC RF200 reader is to be integrated directly into a S7-1200 control system. Basic RFID functionalities are to be realized via the reader.
The RF120C communication module was developed in order to connect the SIMATIC RFID readers directly to a S7 1200 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:
