Balluff magnetic mount designed to simplify RFID integration



May 26, 2018 – Balluff’s new break-off magnetic mount with tag holder is designed to allow for easy integration of RFID systems. Using a magnetic connection, they are ideal for presses where frequent tool or size changes are required, explains the company.

The magnetic mounts are made to easily align read/write heads and help in the continuity of the RFID signal, but they also protect the heads from accidental damage, according to Balluff. The company explains the unit is suitable for replacing conventional insertable connectors; reliably connects and disconnects RFID readers; aligns RFID readers for tag detection; and includes positive stop for protection from damage.
