RFID Antenna Supplier Arcadian Launches RFMAX Product Line

Arcadian, a New Jersey-based distributor of commercial antennas and wireless equipment, has announced the launch of RFMAX, its new line of antennas, weatherproof enclosures, cables and related hardware for the RFID market. The company plans to officially launch RFMAX at this year's RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition, to be held in San Diego, Calif., on Apr. 15-17.

RFMAX's RFID Power Mapper
The RFMAX product line, the company reports, encompasses a range of products designed to solve everyday RFID challenges and to simplify RFID systems setup. The initial lineup of RFMAX products includes RFID reader enclosures designed to protect sensitive RFID equipment from the elements and simplify system setup; RFID race-timing antenna kits that include everything needed to set up antennas for an RFID race-timing system; and RFID Power Mapper, a handheld passively powered meter for mapping RF signal patterns and strength, and for identifying null or dead spots. The RFMAX product line also includes RFID antennas designed to meet unique application requirements and outperform existing products in the RFID space, as well as RFID jumper cables designed for quick connections and peak RFID performance.

"Our focus is to bring to market unique and robust products to fill a variety of gaps in the existing RFID space, enhancing the ability of RFID VARs and system integrators to offer the best possible solutions for the end user," said Michael Crudele, Arcadian's president, in a prepared statement. "We're creating these products based on Arcadian's many years of experience in RFID antenna applications."
