Adaptable RFID antenna

28 September 2015

HARTING has developed a unique RFID antenna which uses a coaxial travelling-wave concept to offer a compact package with flexibility in the design of RF reading zones.

The Ha-VIS LOCFIELD antenna is adaptable to specific applications and is suitable for use where space is at a premium. Often, there is very little space available around belt conveyors, and classical RFID antennas are limited as they cannot map curved tracks – a factor that restricts the capability for customers to track and trace production history at every point in the process.

The new Ha-VIS LOCFIELD RFID antenna requires minimal space, consisting only of an industrial-grade coaxial line. The antenna cable is mechanically flexible and can be installed and laid in any given shape according to the requirements of specific customer applications. This includes the ability to lay it around the curves of conveyor belts.

Users therefore have the ability to design a customised UHF RFID reading zone. A wide range of challenging applications become possible, including RFID installations in smart shelves, 19in racks, complex machines, doors and pass-throughs, all with reduced costs and maximum ease of installation.
