Slim RFID UHF antennas FlexiRayTM have unique radiation pattern enabling creation of RFID reading zones in entrances, doors, belt conveyors or production lines. Antennas are modular, can be supplied in various lengths from 490 to 1330 mm, which allows optimum adaptation to a particular installation. RFID antennas FlexiRay provide flexible mounting options. Antenna’s design allows the use not only in industrial environment, but also in interiors and offices.
Robust antenna model, FlexiRay SFR, was designed for industrial applications and for use in interiors as well. Robust all-metal construction was specially developed to be used in demanding industrial environments. Ultra-slim RFID antenna model, FlexiRay SF, with a thickness of only 2 mm, was designed for creating RFID reading zones in entrances or doors. The unique antenna design allows also completely invisible installation directly inside the door frame.
The main reasons which led Barco to the development of RFID UHF antennas clarified Tomas Kubicek, Marketing Manager: "The main reasons to develop FlexiRay UHF RFID antennas were based on our experience from real RFID projects. This pointed to gaps on current market for RFID products especially in the field of RFID deployment in interiors, as well as when installing RFID reading zones on production lines and conveyor belts.
Poor design of RFID antennas and also the radiation pattern are bottleneck of many installations. FlexiRay antennas have been successfully tested in real production facility of a major Czech company in a large-scale RFID implementation. The results confirmed our expectations. The antennas have proved to show a better performance than the products of reputable manufacturers tested in this mentioned project. We are pleased that our ideas were correct and our RFID development brings real results."
