Tyco Electronics has expanded its RFID solutions product family with the introduction of a line of ruggedized RFID antennas for use in baler and compactor RFID applications. The M/A-COM MAAN-000210-AT0000 is a linear polarized antenna with a high-density polyethylene radome that is said to provide superior protection from constant abrasion. It also has a neoprene gasket to prevent liquids from infiltrating the antenna.

The M/A-COM MAAN-000210-AT0000 antennas operate with a typical gain of 2.5dB. The antennas have a beam width of 130 at 3dB, and a typical Voltage Standing Wave Radio (VSWR) of 1.5:1. Multidirectional conduit access holes and a removable connector access panel are available for more efficient installation. The connector housing is removable for use in National Electrical Manufacturer's Association (NEMA) enclosures.

The M/A-COM MAAN-000210-AT0000 is a customized antenna. Price and delivery quotes can be obtained directly from Tyco Electronics' M/A-COM sales channels.
