Wide Range RFID UHF Antenna - WRA 6060

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.

Key Applications

  • Vehicle Registration
  • POS
  • Smart Shelf
  • Kanban

Wide Range UHF RFID 7070 Antennas - WRA 7070

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.

  • Read range up to 12 m
  • IP67 outdoor protection class
  • Available in Linear, Circular and ©KRAI

Key Applications

  • Gate applications for goods registration
  • Logistics
  • Vehicle registration
  • Bulk and single-tag applications

Mid Range RFID UHF Antennas – MIRA Circular Antenna Unit

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.

Key Applications

  • Logistics applications: installing to corridor conveyor vehicles
  • Materials handling applications
  • Gate applications for goods registration
  • Bulk and single tag applications
  • Access systems

Mid Range RFID UHF Antenna -  S-MIRA Circular Antenna Unit

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.

Key Applications

  • Logistics applications: installing corridor conveyor vehicles
  • Materials handling applications
  • Gate applications for goods registration
  • Bulk and single tag applications
  • Access systems (e.g. ski lifts, control systems for tickets)

Low Range RFID UHF Antenna | U-LORA Antenna Unit

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.

Key Applications

  • Pharmaceutical industry 
  • Access controls
  • Automation industry
