The new function block library from Contrinex simplifies the integration of IO-Link read/write modules in RFID projects and thus reduces engineering time and costs. This library covers all the necessary functions for communication with a Simatic S7-1200/S7-1500 or equivalent PLC. The user can drag and drop the required IO-Link function block into the corresponding network and store it there. It’s that fast and easy.
IO-Link function blocks for HF-SLK with IO-Link interface can be downloaded free of charge from the Contrinex website.
Contrinex has developed a range of easy-to-use, simplified function blocks (SFBs) for fast implementation of basic RFID commands, including ScanUID, ScanUSER, READ_HF, WRITE_HF and ANT_ON/OFF. SFBs can usually be assigned without further documentation, making programs easier to develop and maintain.
