LFM load port reader

LF

The LFM Loadport RFID Reader is a high performance RFID reader designed specifically for the semiconductor industry. The LFM Loadport RFID Reader is a read/write device of the LFM class (LF Midrange), which communicates with passive RFID transponders in the LF frequency range 134.2 kHz. It is designed for auto-ID solutions in the semiconductor industry and is particularly suitable for integration in load ports in clean room applications with a read distance in the small and medium range. High-quality components make the reader very reliable and error-resistant – even in metallic environments.

By using the LFM loadport RFID reader, companies in the semiconductor industry can make their processes faster and more secure. The reader enables fast and precise identification by RFID of wafer cassettes and FOUPs, which contributes to safety in the production process. Thanks to automatic data transfer, errors in manual data entry can be avoided, ensuring higher accuracy and reliability of data. The RFID reader can also be used with the appropriate software to create high-quality analyses and models that help companies optimize their business processes and gain competitive advantages.

We offer the Loadport RFID reader in a wide range of variants and can therefore cover a wide variety of semiconductor manufacturing processes. For example, it can be used at manual workstations, for production control and quality control. In the field of logistics and transport, the reader enables precise tracking of goods and products. In summary, the LFM loadport RFID reader is an important tool for companies in the semiconductor industry that want to rely on faster, more accurate and more efficient methods of product tracking.

The HERMOS-RFID-LFM-SET LP includes all components necessary to equip a loadport with RFID functionality. A suitable RFID-SET is available for all common loadport solutions in the semiconductor industry.
