ifm - UHF RFID reader production testing
Fully Automated UHF Reader Testing
During Mass Production
„Several years ago ifm started with RFID. In 2018 ifm was looking for a competent partner in UHF RFID technology and started working with CISC,” says Andre Bixenmann, Technical Manager RFID Systems „Initially using the CISC RFID Xplorer to support the engineering, we recognized that we would like to have the same kind of in-depth testing also for production and asked CISC for a solution.”
„The API control software enabled a convenient integration of a comprehensive reader testing setup during the mass production,” says Tobias Glückler, Teamleader Product Development RFID, „The switch and its possibility to connect contact and contactless RF Sensor Modules allowed us to realize a fully automated production test solution for our comprehensive UHF reader product portfolio.
