MTI Wireless Edge Announces Two New RFID Antennas

MTI Wireless Edge has announced the development of two new antennas, one in the form of mat designed for race-timing applications, entry control and gates, and the other a flush-mounted antenna suitable for indoor applications. Both operate in the 902 to 928 MHz frequency range.

The Mat Antenna measures 742 millimeters (29.2 inches) in length, 550 millimeters (21.7 inches) in width and 22 millimeters (0.9 inch) in thickness. It has a minimum 2-meter (6.6-foot) read range and is IP-67 rated (signifying it as dustproof and waterproof).

The Flush Mounted 9dBic antenna, suitable for indoor applications, utilizes a 150-millimeter (5.9-inch) cable with an SMA connector to allow for a side connection, for applications for which a back connection is not possible. It measures 305 millimeters (12 inches) in length and width and 25 millimeters (1 inch) in thickness.

The Flush Mounted 9dBic antenna is available now. The Mat Antenna has been successfully prototyped and tested, and a manufacturing model is currently under development, according to Reuven Drori, MIT Wireless Edge's RFID sales and marketing director.
