Barco introduced new generation of RFID UHF antennas FlexiRay SFR 2.X. New SFR product line is based on innovated radiation pattern of SF 2.X and superior new grade low loss materials in rugged & unobtrusive enclosure. SFR 2.X antennas with gain 5,5 dBic address the needs for application requiring esthetic and pleasing technology design as well as sufficient gain and great read ranges. Using maximum EIRP 2W it can achieve reading distance from 4 to 7 meters, depending on the type of antenna, used reader, cable length, used RFID tags and environment.
New generation SFR 2.X enables creation of RFID reading zones in entrances, exits, corridors, doors and gates. Esthetic and pleasing design allows deploying the antennas in interiors for asset & people tracking in commercial, retail & library applications. Thanks to its modular size, thickness and robustness it is also suitable for applications in light logistics and industrial environment, manufacturing, reading on conveyors and production lines.
FlexiRay SFR 2.X is supplied in various lengths from 585 to 1090 mm, thus allowing optimal adaptation to specific installation. Rugged high-quality aluminum construction was developed for use in logistics, manufacturing and industrial conditions. Antenna has circular polarization and is available for FCC and ETSI frequencies. Antennas are equipped with robust N-type connector for flexible cable connection.
“The new generation FlexiRay SFR antennas proved that RFID technology can be nice & esthetic and provide great functionality and performance at the same time. The technology design is a key to successful RFID adoption, growth & development in many application areas. We are glad we can contribute to this growth also thanks to our innovative RFID antenna line", clarified Tomas Kubicek, Marketing & Business Development Manager, Barco.
