SICK Awards
RFU61x RFID read/write device wins at the iF Design Award 2019

The RFU61x received the iF DESIGN AWARD 2019 for its compact, industrial design. As the smallest sensor in SICK’s UHF product family, the RFU61x is part of a future-proof identification solution. UHF technology offers a range of procedural advantages. Transponders can thus be read or written even without direct visual contact. In addition, several transponders can be identified at the same time (bulk reading). This facilitates a fully transparent process for supply chains without media disruptions, which ensures consistent identification of objects across fields of application, company boundaries, and continents.
