2 1 EP B1 2 Description Field of the Invention [0001] The present invention generally concerns communication modules for programmable controllers that are used to control industrial assembly applications. In particular, the invention concerns an interface module employing radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to facilitate wireless communication between the programmable controller and other devices both within the controller and external to the controller. Background of the Invention [0002] In the field of programmable logic controllers (PLCs), communication between a PLC and other devices, such as external devices, is typically accomplished by electro-mechanical means through a backplane or fixed connector on the PLC. For example, PLCs have traditionally been programmed by transmission of information through a cable that is attached to a program port on the body of the PLC. Such attachment can be cumbersome, unreliable, and relatively costly. [0003] The prior art has in some instances used modems to control, monitor and test/debug PLCs from remote locations. The modem devices are also typically connected to a PLC through the backplane or a fixed connector on the PLC. [0004] Radio frequency identification ("RFID") technology has been used in various fields as a means of identifying articles. RFID technology has been used for identifying parcels, luggage, and other materials. An RFID system generally consists of an antenna; a transmitter/ receiver and; a transponder (called an RF chip set or tag) that is electronically programmed with unique identification information. The antenna emits radio signals that activate the RFID tag and write and read data to and from the RFID tag. For example, an antenna mounted on a toll booth may monitor various aspects of traffic by sending RF signals to an RF tag mounted within each passing automobile. [000] RFID tags are available in many different sizes/ shapes and are generally characterized as either passive or active. Active tags are internally powered and are typically readable and writable. Active tags have relatively large amounts of memory. Passive tags operate without an internal power source. Passive tags obtain operating power generated from the reader. Passive tags are typically read-only. RFID systems provide for wireless communication through many materials. RFID tags can also be read at high speeds. [0006] In one example, RFID technology is implemented through an integrated chip set with a PROM for programming an identification (ID) code. The RFID chip set is placed on an article and the ID code may be transmitted to, and stored in, the RFID chip. The ID code is then scanned by a transmitter/receiver. The RFID chip is passive and employs the power of the transmitting signal to energize the RFID coil and to return a signal including the ID code or a signal affirming the ID code. [0007] The use of RFID technology has been limited essentially to identification applications and has not been implemented as a means for transferring data in machines, such as PLCs. It would also be advantageous to have the wireless RFID interface as an integral part of the PLC eliminating the need for communication through the backplane and cables. [0008] US 01/ A1 describes an automation system wherein data from at least one sensor is transmitted by way of a radio transmission device to a radio receiver associated with a control device. EP-A describes a lubrication system in which various lubricant dispensers may communicate wirelessly with a central station used to monitor the dispensers. Only conventional radio communications are envisaged in these prior documents, however. Summary of the Invention [0009] The present invention provides a programmable logic controller (PLC) comprising a housing containing at least one circuit board including circuitry for performing controller functions. The controller includes a radio frequency identification (RFID) transponder and a coil associated therewith for implementing wireless communication both within the controller, and between the controller and remotely-located modules. Two or more circuit boards within the controller housing each include a said RFID transponder and a said coil; and each said RFID transponder is coupled to the circuitry of the circuit board on which it is mounted. [00] In certain embodiments, the RFID coil of the RFID transponder is etched into the circuit board on which it is mounted. [0011] In certain embodiments, a mount is provided for mounting the RFID transponder to the circuit board. The mount may be selected from the group comprising: a standard surface mount, a through-hole mounting device, and a chip-on-board mounting device. [0012] In certain embodiments, the circuitry of one of the circuit boards comprises an integrated circuit and the associated RFID transponder forms part of the schematic of the integrated circuit. [0013] In certain embodiments, the controller comprises a processor that receives radio frequency signals carrying programming instructions for execution by the processor. [0014] In certain embodiments, the RFID transponder is shielded to prevent radio frequency communication with the RFID transponder from interfering with the operation of the controller. [001] In certain embodiments, the RFID transponder operates in a frequency range outside of frequencies at which the controller operates to prevent radio frequency communication with the RFID transponder from interfer- 2

3 3 EP B1 4 ing with the operation of the controller. [0016] In certain embodiments, the wireless communication carries signals representing wireless testing instructions. The wireless communication may carry testing signals during manufacturing process of the controller during a manufacturing process. [0017] ln certain embodiments, the programmable logic controller further comprises a network interface for interfacing the programmable logic controller to a network. The network interface may communicate information received from one of said RFID transponders over said network. In certain embodiments, the network interface interfaces to the Internet. [0018] The present invention also provides a method for providing wireless communication with a programmable logic controller, the programmable logic controller comprising a housing containing least one circuit board including circuitry for performing controller functions. The method comprises providing, on each of two or more circuit boards within the housing, a radio frequency identification (RFID) transponder and a coil associated therewith adapted to implement wireless communication both within the programmable logic controller, and between the programmable controller and remotely-located modules, whereby two or more circuit boards within the housing each include a said RFID transponder and a said coil associated therewith; and whereby each said RFID transponder is coupled to the circuitry of the circuit board on which it is mounted. [0019] The wireless communication may carry programming instructions for the controller; alternatively, the wireless communication may carry error notification signals indicating when there is a problem in the controller. Brief Description of the Drawings [00] Fig. 1 shows the general construction of a PLC that may embody the wireless communications interface in accordance with the invention. Fig. 2 shows a circuit board of a PLC incorporating a wireless communications interface in accordance with the invention. Fig. 3 shows the circuit board of Fig. 2 in various uses employing the wireless communication feature embodied by the invention. Detailed Description of the Invention [0021] Fig. 1 shows the PLC of the invention incorporating the wireless communications interface. The PLC includes a housing 2 that contains an input module 4, a central processing unit 7 and an output module 9. The PLC includes one or more circuit boards 11 (See Fig. 2). [0022] Further, a network interface 12 may be provided for connecting the PLC to a network, such as an on-line network as a Local Area Network or the Internet. Information received or stored on the chip, therefore, may be communicated over the network. One skilled in the art of network communications, particularly TCP/IP, will understand readily how such communications are to be implemented. [0023] As shown in Fig. 2, the wireless interface 1 is to be mounted on a circuit board 11 contained within the housing 2 of the PLC. The wireless interface employs a standard RFID chip set, such as Texas Instruments Tag it. ln a preferred embodiment, the RFID is a passive receiver/transmitter. According to the invention, the RFID chip set 1 is mounted to an integrated circuit on the circuit board 11 of the programmable controller. This will allow separate integrated circuits to be in communication via wireless connection. The RFID chip set 1 may contact the active elements of the integrated circuit by standard surface mount, a through hole mount, or a chip-onboard mount. The RFID chip set 1 may also be a part of the schematic of the integrated circuit. [0024] In addition, integrated circuits equipped with the wireless interface on a board can facilitate communication between the PLC and other devices, such as any of the components in the computer. Thus, the circuit board may communicate wirelessly using radio frequency with other circuit boards similarly equipped with the RFID chip set, without requiring communication through connectors 19. [002] As shown in Fig. 3, with such a modified device, a PLC equipped with the RFID chip set may communicate wirelessly with remotely-located modules such as a card and rack system 22; a programming device, such as a hand held programmer 27; or a computer 31. The concept may also be extended to process automation in general and may be further applicable to other industrial applications. For example, it is contemplated that the invention may be applicable to automotive diagnostics. In this case, the invention may communicate with different areas of a car or may communicate between different devices in an automobile. [0026] As is also shown in Fig. 3, the invention may be employed to perform wireless testing from an operator s terminal 3 during the manufacturing process or to communicate wireless error code messages to a remote computer 31 during operation. This enables quick troubleshooting. In a PLC with numerous modules, the technician is able to locate the problematic module quickly, particularly in a large system where a proliferation of modules may make troubleshooting difficult. [0027] Traditionally, a PLC (such as the S7-0 or S7-0, Siemens Energy & Automation, Johnson City, TN) is programmed using a cable. The dependence upon cables is eliminated so that a programmer in the field need not worry about hardware compatibility issues. PLCs may be programmed via the wireless interface of the invention. [0028] Any possibility of interference with the operation of the PLC caused by the radio frequency nature of the communication by the RFID chip set 1 may be alleviated 3

4 EP B1 6 through suitable shielding. Another way to address this problem is to limit the frequency range of the RFID chip set outside of the normal PLC operating frequencies. Another approach limits the proximity to one another of the RFID s 1 on the modules. [0029] The use of the wireless interface may also create problems in compliance with FCC and CE (EU) regulations. This problem may be overcome by limiting the range of the interface. Limiting the range may be accomplished by use of shielding or reducing the power output. [00] In addition, the invention may be connected to a micro-chip or circuitry. The RFID chip set 1 may be etched into the circuit board rather than a stick on label as is the current situation. The RFID chip set 1 is relatively inexpensive and may alleviate connection defects that commonly occur with plug-type connectors in the backplane of the PLC. The RFID should provide a more reliable connection. [0031] Those skilled in the art will realize that numerous modifications and variations of the present invention are possible in light of the above teachings and embodiments. Therefore, the invention should not be construed as limited to any of the foregoing embodiments, but instead should be viewed within the scope of the appended claims. 1 2 a chip-on-board mounting device..
