RFID Antennas Withstand Harsh Environments

The RFID HD RooTenna series offers six options of integrated RFID antennas covering 865-960 MHz. The RooTenna series integrates a high-performance RFID antenna and a compartment for reader electronics into an IP-67-rated weatherproof housing enclosure, making it suitable for harsh environments. The antennas cover RFID frequency ranges of 902-928 MHz and 865-868 MHz; a wide-band version spans 865-960 MHz. Within the series are six different circularly-polarized UHF antenna options that are available in a choice of right-hand (RH) and left-hand (LH) circular polarization. Features include very low VSWR, axial ratio, and a fixed SMA connector. The die-cast enclosure can be mounted on poles or walls and a heavy-duty tilt bracket is available for those installations requiring up or down tilt. Eleven engineered knockouts are provided, nine of which are sized for N connectors with two more sized for a cable feed-through. LAIRD TECHNOLOGIES INC., Chesterfield, MO. (636) 898-6000.
