RFID Basic Examples: SIMATIC RF300 via RF180C
The task is to integrate a SIMATIC RF300 reader into an S7 control system via PROFINET. Using the reader, basic RFID functionalities are to be implemented.
The RF180C communication module was developed to connect the SIMATIC RFID readers to an S7 control system via PROFINET. 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:
