Harting's Ha-VIS Locfield travelling wave UHF antenna is designed to to create a passive RFID reading zone with a single antenna for applications like smart shelving systems, wireless sensor networks, door and window pass-throughs and tool identification processes in machines. The antenna generates a localized electromagnetic field along the contour of the antenna cable. One Ha-VIS Locfield coax cable, which comes in standard lengths of up to 3 m or custom lengths up to 10 m, becomes the antenna itself when connected to a high-power RFID reader. Two such antennas can be plugged into a dual port reader creating a reading zone up to 20 metres in almost any shape desired. The cable can be adapted to the layout or contours of any building, door, vehicle or machine interior or warehouse racking system, making it suitable for warehousing and logistics, transportation, and other processing and manufacturing sector applications.
