RFID basic examples: SIMATIC RF200 via RF170C

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
SIMATIC RF200 readers are integrated in a distributed manner into a control system via an ET 200pro via the RF170C communication module. The S7 block “ident blocks" or “ident profile" are used to control this configuration.

Task
A SIMATIC RF200 reader is to be integrated in a distributed manner via an ET 200pro to a S7-1200 control system. Basic RFID functionalities are to be realized via the reader. 

Solution
The RF170C communication module was developed in order to connect SIMATIC RFID readers in a distributed manner via an ET 200pro into a S7 control system. In order to control the readers the S7 "Ident blocks" program blocks are used.
The basic example for this solution is kept very simple. The focus in the 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:
