SIMATIC RF300 – the powerful HF RFID system
For the highest demands
Thanks to very fast data transmission and large memory, the compact SIMATIC RF300 RFID system is ideal for use in assembly lines, flexible manufacturing solutions and automation applications. It also features extensive status and diagnostic functions as well as easy integration into your infrastructure. By analyzing the data that were supplied to cloud applications by SIMATIC RF300, production processes become transparent across companies.
New reader SIMATIC RF360R – compact and communicative
With PROFINET and OPC/UA on board, SIMATIC RF360R combines the functions of a communication module and a reader in one device. The integrated OPC UA interface, for the first time, supports direct connection to cloud applications via an Industrial IoT gateway.
With SIMATIC RF300 we offer a powerful RFID system for the highest demands on speed, data volume and diagnostic functionality.
- Easy integration with PROFIBUS, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, TCP/IP, XML and OPC UA
- Integral element of Totally Integrated Automation (TIA Portal)
- Interference-proof data communication with high data security
- Maintenance-free tags with up to 64 KB memory, with additional one-time programmable data area (OTP)
- It is possible to use the mixed transponder mode which enables the use of cost-efficient ISO15693 transponders
- Very fast data transmission between reader/writer and tags (up to 8000 bytes/s)
- Comprehensive status and diagnostics functions
- Available options with explosion certification for applications in areas subject to explosion hazards
- Robust, compact components featuring a high degree of protection (up to IP68)

Support of pharmaceutical Track & Trace systems
When producing valuable and cost-intensive pharmaceutical products, the building of an E-Pedigree is of central importance to avoid counterfeits and recalls as well as distribution and process errors.
SIMATIC RF300 enables the seamless tracking of all production and logistics processes.
Route control of Automated Guided Vehicles
Volatile markets make flexible production a key success factor in many industries. In this context, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) play an important role as mobile workpiece carriers.
SIMATIC RF300 makes it possible to control the travel path of AGVs and to determine individual positions.
Automotive powertrain – engine manufacturing
In the manufacturing of combustion engines, process reliability and product quality are top priorities – at the highest possible cycle rates. Important in this context: automated tool identification with RFID.
SIMATIC RF300 ensures maximum transparency in assembly - and thus seamless traceability and quality control.
Electric engine production in the automotive industry
In the automotive industry, the traceability of all quality-relevant materials and components must be guaranteed during the manufacture of electric motors.
With SIMATIC RF300, all production-relevant information can be stored on a workpiece carrier and read and written at individual workstations.
Painting lines (paintshop) in the automotive industry
In the paint shop, the clear identification of the car body is essential for its job-related coloring - under extremely demanding environmental conditions.
SIMATIC RF300 meets even the toughest requirements in paint shops - in terms of degree of protection, as well as chemical and temperature resistance.
Electric overhead monorail system in manufacturing
In many production plants, electric monorail systems are used to transport workpieces. Here, the workpieces are automatically identified and assigned for targeted production process control.
SIMATIC RF300 ensures that all relevant production and quality data is stored as well as dynamically read and written.
