What is Kathrein RFID Antenna Interface (© KRAI)?

The Kathrein © KRAI system includes proprietary Kathrein readers and antennas that allow for the use of up to 4 antennas simultaneously in any combination with a Kathrein © KRAI enabled RFID reader. Kathrein © KRAI Smart Shelf Antennas have two ports to allow for the chaining of antennas together. A maximum of 8 Smart Shelf Antennas can be cascaded at a single antenna port allowing for selective access to up to 32 individual antennas and the reading result to be linked to the antenna recognition and be output. This functionality is great for smart shelf deployments, or any application that requires a large number of antennas.

The phase control elements integrated into the Kathrein Wide-Range 7070 RFID © KRAI Antenna (FCC/ETSI) enables static or dynamic adjustments of antenna characteristics. Due to this, four different polarizations can be selected: RHCP, LHCP, horizontal linear, and vertical linear. One can choose between static polarization and automatic switch-over. Using this combination, it is possible to automatically control a large number of extended functions in an entire RFID system. 

NOTE: Kathrein © KRAI Antennas can be operated ONLY in conjunction with © KRAI enabled readers.
