Kathrein Low Range RFID Antenna (FCC/ETSI)

The Kathrein Low Range RFID Antenna features a high field concentration in the near field with simultaneously extremely minimized antenna gain in the far field. With these properties, this antenna achieves outstanding reading and writing results with ranges up to 2.8 in (7 cm) with a typical selectivity of 2.0 (5 cm). The special design of this antenna guarantees interference-free operation in multi-reader environments. The low range antenna was developed in order to increase the range for near field tags, with which ranges up to 2.8 in (7 cm) can be achieved and is particularly suited to near-field tags.
