AceProx products can be applied for example to public parking, refueling stations or car sharing systems.
The applications Public Parking and Non-Public Parking incur different requirements for the transponders being used:For permanent parkers in the non public environment mostly ISO Cards are being used, while round tags or paper transponders are more common for public parking.
Operators of large vehicle fleets often have their own onsite refueling station, where authorized drivers can refuel the company vehicles 24/7. RFID Cards or Keyring Tags are being used for identification at the terminal, which is equipped with an RFID Reader.
Car sharing systems enjoy encreasing popularity, particularly in big citys and sometimes involving electric vehicles including charging stations. The registered user identifies himself by RFID Card or NFC at the RFID Reader placed behind the wind screen and gets access to the car.
Intelligent E-Mobilty Charging Management System for Company Car Park at Beckhoff Belgium
“At the Beckhoff Headquarters in Belgium we only have 3x 32A in our parking lot, so we designed an automated charging system using:
• standard power measurement
• relays to switch on/off wall mounted power sockets
• AceProx RS485 RFID readers, Ref.683-52
• sensor/indicator devices”
…reports Philip Neyens from Beckhoff Automation, who has successfully implemented the system.
The heart of the system is a standard CX5140 controller plus other components from the Beckhoff Automation Portfolio.
