*) The successor product is also available in the versions RF185C (6GT2002-0JE10) for connecting only one reader, or RF188C (6GT2002-0JE40) for connecting four readers

 

This applies to all successor products:

  • The readers/SLGs of the MOBY D/E/I/U families are no longer supported.
  • The plug-in connectors for the power supply have changed. The successor modules have standard M12 L-coded plug-in technology for the 24V supply. The current carrying capacity is identical to the previous plug-in technology: 16 A
  • The file handler functionality is no longer supported. For systems with file handler functionality, the previous communication modules are still available in sufficient numbers and for a long time as replacement parts, so that the operation of existing systems can be maintained.
