Laird Technologies has announced the release of its new RFID HD RooTenna series that 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 ideal for harsh environments.
The antennas cover industry-standard 902-928 MHz and 865-868 MHz RFID frequencies, as well as a wide band version for 865-960 MHz. The series offers 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.
This RFID antenna system is ideal for outdoor use by OEMs and system integrators, said Monty Rohde, Laird Technologies Director of Business Development, because it allows ultimate system flexibility.
The die-cast enclosure can be pole or wall mounted and a heavy duty tilt bracket is available for those installations requiring up or down tilt. Eleven (11) engineered knockouts are provided: nine sized for N connectors and two sized for a cable feed-through.
