The SIMATICS S7-1200 PLC and RF630R RFID reader are integrated in a control box mounted atop the elevator cab. Owners call for the elevator with their one-button key fob remotes, then drive their cars into the cab. The RFID reader reads their cars’ RFID tags, which are programmed with their designated parking floor.
