.NET application for the SIMATIC RF350M with WiFi connection (inclusive SDK)

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The hand-held terminal SIMATIC RF350M is designed for the flexible use of radio frequency identification (RFID). The device is based on Windows CE and therefore offers the opportunity to create and use individual, user-specific applications for RFID cheaply and in a standardized way.

An SDK is offered to create own applications for the RF350M, which maps all available RFID functions. It also contains an API for the native implementation via C++ and another API for the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework.

This application example shows a customized application of RFID based on the .NET API created with C#, that demonstrates the basic functions of RFID. This includes reading, writing, stocktaking and initialization of transponders as well as the opportunity to switch the read head regarding the available air interfaces RF300 and ISO15693.

In addition, the example shows how to use the integrated WiFi interface of the RF350M to send read out transponder data to a PC or a S7‑PLC.
