These are passive UHF RFID high-performance antennas from Kathrein, suitable for a variety of different read ranges including low range (LORA), mid-range (MIRA) and wide range (WIRA) antennas. ©KRAI enables different intelligent features like beam switch, polarisation switch and antenna cascading for multiple use cases.
Automated vehicle identification:
The WRA 6060 antenna features a homogeneous read zone emitted by the high front-to-back ratio. This makes it ideal for static detection of multiple transponders. Its thin design enables the antenna to be integrated into different applications.
Wide range antennas (WRA) with large reading distances are the optimal choice for classic far-field applications.
Its low axial ratio for circular polarisation, greatly reduces the dependence of reading results upon the position or alignment of tags.
The mid-range antenna (MIRA) is built for a wide reading range in between the near and far field. Reading distances of up to 5 m are possible with dimensions of 143.8 x 156 mm.
MIRA is used for reading distances up to 2 m and offers reading range selection.
The mid-range antenna (MIRA) was developed for applications in the range between the near and far-field. The focus of the compact design was for integration in space-critical applications. Reading distances of up to 5 m are still possible with dimensions of 143.8 x 156 mm. In this case,
however, the reading range is very wide.
In most cases, the MIRA is used for reading distances up to 2 m, for which it features sufficient selectivity. Therefore, this antenna design is especially suitable for applications in the so-called transition area with different tag types.
Applications in radiating near field, extremely small dimensions, reading range: < 20 cm, extremely high selectivity, not influenced by metal.
The Ultra-Low Range Antenna (ULORA) and Low Range Antenna (LORA) feature a high field concentration in the near field with simultaneously
extremely minimised antenna gain in the far-field. With these properties, the antennas achieve outstanding reading and writing results with ranges up
to 10 cm with a typical selectivity of 5 cm. The special design of these antennas guarantees interference-free operation in multi-reader environments.
The ULORA was specially developed to read dipolar tags (far-field tags) at very limited distances. In addition, this antenna can address
looped tags (near field tags) up to 3 cm. The LORA version was developed in order to increase the range for near field tags, with which ranges up to 7 cm can be achieved. The range of applications of the antennas according to tag type is displayed in the tag association table.
The antenna has a homogeneous read zone emitted by the high front to back ratio.
Suitable for static detection of multiple transponders. Up to 32 antennas can be cascaded. Without cascade function option is also available
The antenna protection cover comes with the standard package.
