RFID Basic Examples: SIMATIC RF300 via RF170C

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Via the RF170C communication module, SIMATIC RF300 readers are integrated into a control system on a distributed basis using an ET 200pro. The “Ident” / “Ident Profile” S7 blocks are used to control this configuration.

Task
The task is to integrate a SIMATIC RF300 reader into an S7-1200 control system on a distributed basis using an ET 200pro. Using the reader, basic RFID functionalities are to be implemented. 

Solution
The RF170C communication module was developed to connect the SIMATIC RFID readers to an S7 control system on a distributed basis using an ET 200pro. The “Ident” S7 program blocks are used to control the readers.
The basic example for this solution is kept very simple. It focuses on describing the basic steps for configuring and programming the automation solution. The following figure shows the structure of the solution:
