Awarded the highest certification available for impact rating, its IP65 die-cast aluminum, weatherproof, sealed housing protects against dust, dirt, and wind-driven rain, ensuring superior reliability and avoiding inconvenient and costly maintenance. The antenna carries a full 36-month warranty when paired with a FEIG UHF reader.
The Robust Antenna is ideal for outdoor or industrial applications where harsh, demanding conditions exist, such as gated access control, perimeter protection, vehicle mounting on waste collection trucks or industrial forklifts, container tracking in shipping ports, airport baggage handling operations, and vehicle identification for road tolling.
“This RFID antenna was developed for outdoor applications like road tolling and is intended to be mounted on gantries that extend across multiple high-speed traffic lanes to detect the toll tags of vehicles passing below,” said Manuel Haertlé, senior product manager for FEIG. “In general, once installed, corrective maintenance in response to a malfunction or equipment failure is expensive and inconvenient. The reliability of the products avoids both the expense and inconvenience.”
The operating range of the Robust Antenna will withstand continuous exposure to winter’s worst freeze in northern latitudes to the extreme summer heat of a desert climate.
