Industrial automation solutions pioneer Omron Automation Americas recently launched an extension of the V780 UHF RFID reader/writer to enable cost-effective networking of up to eight antennas for applications requiring extended tag sensing area. Omron, a global leader in end-to-end industrial automation solutions, launched its new V780 UHF RFID slave unit that allows for Ethernet networking with a central V780 unit. Ideal for an array of industries, this easy-to-use, long-range RFID technology facilitates the process of uniquely identifying large objects.

Many RFID applications require sensing of multiple tags simultaneously with tags facing in different directions – for example, a pallet of RFID-tagged parts where each tag is oriented differently. For applications like these, and others where a multiple-antenna system improves performance, the V780 offers a cost-effective way to network up to eight antennas with a master control unit that passes tag data to an automation controller or PC-based control system.

Omron RFID systems enable non-contact reading and writing of data. Omron’s wide variety of RF tags, amplifiers and controllers enables the visualization of all kinds of manufacturing sites, which helps increase productivity and improve quality. Omron offers LF, HF and UHF band RFID products, and provides industry-leading service.

Omron Corporation is a global leader in the field of automation. Possessing more than 80 years of experience in sensing and control, Omron has worked with customers to develop new and innovative automation solutions. They continue creating the products and systems that help drive tomorrow’s opportunities.
