Dual-band RFID antennas work with worldwide frequency bands

October 20, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
HUBER+SUHNER announces a range of dual-band UHF RFID antennas designed specifically for integration into package and goods identification systems.

The Sencity® SPOT-L antennas support both European ETSI UHF (865 to 868MHz) and USA/Canadian FCC UHF (902 to 928MHz) RFID bands which allows RFID system designers to develop solutions for a global roll-out.

The antennas feature a matching tag reading range which, combined with a very low profile (11.5 to 15mm), make them suited for use as a conveyor portal antenna or as an under-belt antenna in RFID system applications including warehousing, industrial automation, distribution, retailing and logistics.

There are two flat panel, Sencity® SPOT-L portal antennas in the range which can be placed on the conveyor sides or as a gate. Model 1309.19.0002 measures 773- x 312- x 15-mm while 1309.19.0003 measures 480- x 312- x 15-mm. The under-belt flat panel antenna, Model 1309.17.0110, measures 1020- x 380- x 11.5-mm and can be mounted directly under moving belts.

All three models are left hand circular polarized, DC grounded and come with a cable pigtail. Other key features of interest to system designers include an operating temperature range of -30⁰C to +50⁰C, ingress protection to IP54 and shock and vibration resistance to IEC 60721-3-4.
