RFID Handhelds

Pepperl+Fuchs RFID Handhelds

RFID handhelds from Pepperl+Fuchs help you to identify RFID tags independently of stationary readers. This leads to a wide range of potential applications. Use our RFID handhelds to manually control quality or to verify maintenance work.

Using a sophisticated mechanism, RFID read/write heads for different frequencies (LF, HF, UHF) can be quickly and easily attached to the handheld’s base module without any tools.

  • Robust design, suitable for indoor and outdoor use
  • Simple handling via large touch display
  • Wide variety of helpful functions already available in the standard software
  • Option to create application-specific software
  • Sliding mechanism for tool-free module replacement
  • Handheld, touch screen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Android
  • Lithium ion battery: 3.8 V; 6000 mAh


  • Maintenance
  • Quallity Control

RFID Read/Write Heads for Explosion-Hazardous Areas

Pepperl+Fuchs RFID Read/Write Heads for Explosion-Hazardous Areas

In process plants of the chemical, pharmaceutical or food industry, fluids that can be pumped are fed to the corresponding parts of the plant via so-called hose stations. To ensure the quality and safety of the processes, errors must be avoided. It is not uncommon for the media used to be hazardous substances. Thanks to the automatic identification of hose coupling points at the hose stations via RFID, the correct connection can be checked reliably and automatically without additional time expenditure. If an incorrect hose connection is detected, the integration into the automation environment prevents the switching on of pumps or the start-up of a process, which would otherwise have led to high consequential costs.

  • The compact read/write heads are suitable for use in Zone 1 and Zone 21 hazardous areas.
  • The 30GM-Ex design is ideally suited for applications in the process industry, such as hose stations or sampling points.
  • Available for LF (125 kHz) and HF RFID (13.56MHz)

The Pepperl+Fuchs RFID Read/Write Head Family for explosion-hazardous areas include:

  • IPH-30GM-Ex (LF RFID)
  • IQH1-30GM-Ex (HF RFID)
  • Read/write head with thread M30 x 1.5
  • Robust and compact stainless steel housing
  • ATEX-approval for zone 1 and zone 21
  • Wide operating temperature range 20°C … +70°C
  • Degree of protection IP68
  • Encapsulation Ex m
  • For connection to IDENTControl control interface


  • Explosion-Hazardous Applications
  • Hose stations
  • Sampling points

Compact UHF RFID Read/Write Heads

Pepper+Fuchs Compact UHF RFID Read/Write Heads

With the presentation of the UHF Read/Write Head IUT-F190-B40, the extensive portfolio in the field of identification systems is now extended by a new representative with integrated Industrial Ethernet interface and REST API. Designed for medium ranges, the IUT-F190-B40 can be integrated particularly quickly and easily into OT and IT systems due to to these interface technologies and thus offers an attractive solution for production control and monitoring, track-and-trace applications and other Industry 4.0 applications in factory automation.

  • Most powerful compact, industrial UHF reader for medium read ranges
  • Integrated mulitprotocol industrial Ethernet saves installation space and time.
  • The integrated web interface allows easy operation, setup and troubleshooting without additional software.
  • A REST API enables simple integration into IT systems, even without PLC.
