A1001 Near Field/Short Range UHF RFID Antenna

A1001 Near Field/Short Range UHF RFID Antenna

The A1001 is a small near-field short range UHF antenna. Read distance is from 0 to 10cm.

Some applications require only near zone tag detection. The A1001 is specifically designed for these applications. The A1001’s radiation intensity is highest at the antenna’s surface.  ‘Tap and go’ type applications are possible with the A1001 antenna. In the A1001 near-field antenna, polarization is not applicable as it uses the magnetic fields to communicate.

The antenna is polarization independent for a ‘near-field only’ tag. When a far-field tag is used with a near-field antenna at further distances from the antenna’s surface, then the far-field tag may be sensitive in one orientation compared to the other.

Industrial Portal Application

Industrial Portal Application

The IP65 rating and the 10.5 dBiC gain specification makes this antenna highly suitable for industrial applications. A densely packed asset with numerous tags can be identified accurately with almost no effort. A standalone portal can be realized with four A5060 antennas with one antenna overhead and the other three on the sides, mounted offset to one another. All possible tag orientations will be captured due to the A5060’s circular polarization and A5060 antenna’s locations. The antennas on the sides are offset such that the antennas do not face each other and induce maximum coverage within the portal. Almost all assets can be tracked with greater accuracy using our A5060 antenna.

There are two recommended options to mount the antennas as shown in the picture:

Fig. 1: The vertical configuration is recommended for high-density asset tracking (such as palatized boxes, trolley of laundry goods, etc) where you will need a greater RF zone to efficiently read all the tagged items. The RF beam is intentionally spilled in and out of the portal.

Fig. 2: The horizontal configuration is recommended to avoid the stray reads due to the RF spill. The read zone/area is restricted within the width of the portal. Assets that are not densely packed can be read efficiently using this configuration.
