Laird S9026X/S8656X (RHCP) Rugged RFID Antenna (FCC/ETSI)

The Laird S9026X/S8656X (RHCP) Rugged RFID Antenna meets all of the criteria requirements for forklift RFID applications. At only 7.6” x 7.6” x .95”, the antenna is small enough to accommodate a wide variety of forklift applications. The antenna provides 6dBi of gain in the 902-928 MHz and 865-870 MHz bands. The antenna material construction is unique in that it is an all metal antenna. No exterior radome enclosure is required to protect critical components. The result is an antenna that is extremely robust and resistant to damage. The antenna can be mounted directly to the forklift allowing for a view directly into any pallet. Two antennas can be mounted side by side on a custom configured mounting platform if that is desirable. The antenna is provided with a plastic front panel that is secured with adhesive for the purposes of providing a surface that can be used for branding or for any other graphical element that the customer might desire.
