STAR Systems International Unveils RFID Antennas for Electronic Tolling

STAR Systems International, a provider of RFID hardware, tags and professional services, has announced the availability of its new high-performance Avior narrow-beam tolling antenna. Avior was developed, designed and built to be an over-the-road tolling antenna for all electronic tolling systems, using passive RFID tags. It allows system designers to create an optimal read zone in either a multi-lane free flow/open road or in a plaza-based tolling lane.

Toll operators using passive tags require dependable, focused antennas to maximize read rates and the accuracy of automatic transactions. Avior was created specifically with toll operators in mind, the company explains, and maximizes read rates and isolates tag identification to desired read zones. This helps users avoid cross-lane and stray transponder reads, while mitigating adjacent lane interference.

Avior's compact footprint and reduced weight is unique in the market compared to other similarly featured competitive products, according to STAR Systems. The compact size allows for a more efficient and safer installation over roads, reduces shipping and storage costs, and facilitates installation.

Avior has a wideband frequency design, allowing it to operate in the 865 to 928 MHz range, which makes it applicable for use around the globe. Built from heavy-duty aluminum with a weather-resistant housing, Avior is meant to last for years in the harshest of roadside environments. Avior is available now from STAR Systems International and its authorized distribution network.
