Omron releases new V780 UHF RFID Reader for multi-antenna applications

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 8 antennas for applications requiring extended tag sensing area.

HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL, December 5, 2019 – Omron Automation Americas, 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 the automotive industry and others, this easy-to-use, long-range RFID technology facilitates the process of uniquely identifying large objects like car bodies.

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 8 antennas with a master control unit that passes tag data to an automation controller or PC-based control system.

Other advantages of the V780 system include:

  • All-in-one antenna/amplifier/controller design with up to 6m of read/write range per antenna
  • Easy browser-based setup and configuration with advanced diagnostics
  • Visual-based LED indication of system status
  • Compliance with ISO/IEC 18000-63: 2013 to meet global UHF standards
  • EtherNet/Modbus TCP
  • EtherNet/IP versions
