The RFU61x is the smallest read/write device in the UHF portfolio from SICK. It is perfectly suited for IoT applications directly on the workpiece or component. The RFU61x therefore rounds out the UHF product portfolio from SICK by enabling continuous identification along the entire value chain. The interfaces of the RFU61x enable direct connection of a trigger sensor, whereby the RFU61x can be used as a remote, self-supporting unit. Thanks to the integrated process logic, data can be processed directly in the RFU61x and passed onto the controller or IT systems. Like the other Ethernet-based RFU devices, the RFU61x can also be programmed according to individual requirements using the SICK AppSpace eco-system.

Complete transparency with the RFU family
Continuous and company-wide identification with a single technology is now possible for the first time. The RFU61x achieves complete transparency in production and logistics processes – from component assembly to the shipment of the end product. The foundation for this is UHF RFID technology: IIoT applications with scanning ranges of 0 to 10 m, bulk reading and resistance to interfering factors such as light, dirt and dust. A direct line of sight to the data card is also not required.
Continuous identification solution for production and logistics process
The RFU61x RFID read/write device, part of the RFID identification solutions from SICK, is allowing for full transparency along the entire value chain for the first time - and all with one technology
Intelligent UHF RFID identification in the smallest of spaces
The RFU61x is the smallest RFID read/write device of its type. It is optimally suited for IIoT applications for identifying workpieces or components. Diverse interfaces allow for the direct connection of trigger sensors. Intelligent data processing is already integrated. The RFU61x can therefore be used as a self-sufficient remote unit.
The compact RFU61x is optimally suited for applications which do not offer much installation space. The sensor independently performs the triggering, reading and writing as well as processing of data.
SICK is a co-founder of IO-Link and offers a very broad range of IO-Link products. Together with many other sensors and actuators, identification solutions from SICK use IO-Link interfaces to generate and receive data and information that go beyond conventional switching signals or measured process parameters. Here you will learn how you can use different sensors combined with the IO-Link Master.
Your advantages at a glance
With point-to-point communication protocols, IO-Link ensures seamless sensor integration into automation networks. This creates the basis for data transparency down to the lowest field level. This opens up new approaches for digitalization. The data obtained helps to increase flexibility, reliability and efficiency and makes it possible to reduce costs in your plant.
SICK LifeTime Services
SICK’s services increase machine and plant productivity, enhance the safety of people all over the world, provide a solid foundation for a sustainable business operation, and protect investment goods. In addition to its usual consulting services, SICK provides direct on-site support during the conceptual design and commissioning phases as well as during operation.
The range of services not only covers aspects like maintenance and inspection, but also includes performance checks as well as upgrades and retrofits. Modular or customized service contracts extend the service life of plants and therefore increase their availability. If faults occur or limit values are exceeded, these are detected at all times by the corresponding sensors and systems.
