Task description 
A SIMATIC RF670-Reader with ethernet interface is to be linked with a SIMATIC S7-1200 controller. With the aid of the RF600-device information from the mobile data memory of the RF6xxT series is read and written. The objective is to reliable identify objects with attached data storage and to make the saved object data available for further process steps. The stored RFID codes of the data storage have to be processable at any time.

The focus is on the library blocks which enable communication between SIMATIC S7-1200 controller and SIMATIC RF670R.
