WRA 6060 UHF RFID Antenna

WRA 6060 UHF RFID Antenna

The selective path for contactless data acquisition - the UHF RFID antenna with the magnifier!

In many applications of UHF RFID systems, false readings are caused by overreach. These false-positive reads have to be extensively resolved with software algorithms to ensure that the false results do not affect the accounting system.

The new WRA 6060 antenna from Kathrein avoids these errors through a unique antenna concept. The reading range of 0-3 m is optimally reproduced. Above all, the reading zone and the area in which no transponders are captured are very clearly separated.

Key Facts

The WRA 6060 antenna solves problems that have previously made all applications in the UHF RFID range difficult. Due to the excellent selection of the antennas, the desired reading range can be outlined very precisely. Transponders outside this range remain silent in the application. It does not matter whether the transponder is moving close to the antenna or at a distance of 3 meters.

The reading range is always exact and stable, even if there are people in the reading range. The antenna punches out a reading range of approx. 40x40x300 cm. If placed on top of each other, the respective position of the transponders can also be detected.

Application Fields

The antennas are mainly used in such applications, when not only the pure detection but also the spatial allocation of the parts amongst each other is necessary. In modern painting lines, plastic parts are selectively detected. The paint is only released for this part if a space on the transport rack is also occupied. This saves costs in the production of bumpers because no paint is sprayed unnecessarily.

The respective position is detected via the WRA 6060 antenna, which is ideally suited for such applications due to its IP67 sealing. Whenever a UHF RFID reading has to be selective, think of the WRA 6060 - the Kathrein antennas with the magnifier.
