Mechatronics Radio Frequency Identification Learning System for Siemens S7-300 PLC

Model Name: Mechatronics Radio Frequency Identification Learning System for Siemens S7-300 PLC

Model Number: 87-RF1S7300

Learning Topics

Amatrol’s Mechatronics RF Identification Learning System – Siemens 300 Series (87-RF1S7300) – uses an RFID reader to read RF tags on parts traveling through Amatrol’s 870 Mechatronics Learning System. This RFID reader signals a PLC to assemble parts according to the part number listed on the RF tag. RFID (Radio-frequency identification) is a wireless, non-contact method of data transfer that is growing in popularity due to its read reliability, tags being less susceptible to damage than printed barcodes, longer read distance, and ability to record product manufacturing history. This technology is widely used in industries like automotive, pharmaceutical, and agricultural.

Used in conjunction with select 870 mechatronics stations with Siemens S7-300 programmable logic controller (PLC), the 87-RF1S7300 includes an RFID reader, mounting hardware, RF tags, interactive multimedia, a student reference guide, and much more! This equipment will be used to cover topics such as RFID function, applications, and basic operation before moving on to hands-on RFID skills.

Hands-On Learning with a Real-World RFID Reader

The 87-RF1S7300 features real-world components including: an RFID reader that can be affixed to a mechatronics station, a flexible reader mounting fixture, RS-422 module for Siemens 300 series (313, 314, and 315), six RF tags, programming software, and cabling. Learners will use these industrial components to build hands-on skills that translate to actual applications needed by industrial and manufacturing employers. Required learning systems to use the 87-RF1S7300 include one of the following mechatronics station with Siemens 300 series PLCs (313, 314, and 315): a combination of Orientation Processing (Station 3) and Sorting / Buffering (Station 4), Servo Robotic Assembly (Station 5), or Torque Assembly (Station 6) and Inventory Storage (Station 7), or stand-alone use with Station 5.

Develop Applicable Industrial Skills with the 87-RF1S7300

This combination of learning systems will allow learners to develop real-world competencies like using a robot to place a part near the RFID reader in order to tell the PLC the correct spool to use in assembly; reading parts on a rotary table, which tells the PLC on the next mechatronics station whether the part is metal or plastic; and using a reader to sort parts into four different bins based on material.

Strong Depth and Breadth of RFID Learning Topics and Theoretical Knowledge

The 87-RF1S7300 features world-class interactive multimedia curriculum that covers a wide depth and breadth of topics surrounding radio-frequency identification and its applications in industry. Some of these topics include RFID function, applications, basic operation, and types of Siemens RFID systems. This curriculum is presented in a highly interactive multimedia format that fully engages learners by integrating text, audio, 3D graphics, quizzes, and animations.

RFID Skills and Knowledge also available for Allen-Bradley PLCs

If you need to teach these invaluable RFID skills but own Amatrol’s mechatronics stations with Allen-Bradley 5300 PLCs, then Amatrol suggests the Mechatronics RFID Reader – AB5300 Learning System. The 87-RF1AB53 includes all of the content and skills featured with the 87-RF1S7300 except this learning system is written specifi cally for customers with Allen-Bradley PLCs.

Student Reference Guide

A sample copy of the Mechatronics RF Identification Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s multimedia curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfect-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training making it the perfect course takeaway.
