Laird Technologies Inc. has released the RFID HD RooTenna series that offers six options of integrated RFID antennas covering 865MHz to 960MHz.

The RooTenna series integrates a high-performance RFID antenna and a compartment for reader electronics into an IP-67 rated weatherproof housing enclosure, making it suitable for harsh environments.

The antennas cover industry-standard 902MHz to 928MHz and 865MHz to 868MHz RFID frequencies, as well as a wide band version for 865MHz to 960MHz. The series offers six different circularly-polarized UHF antenna options that are available in a choice of right-hand and left-hand circular polarization. Features include very low VSWR, axial ratio, and a fixed SMA connector.

"This RFID antenna system is ideal for outdoor use by OEMs and system integrators because it allows ultimate system flexibility," said Monty Rohde, Laird's director of business development.

The die-cast enclosure can be pole- or wall-mounted and a heavy duty tilt bracket is available for those installations requiring up or down tilt. Eleven engineered knockouts are provided: nine sized for N connectors and two sized for a cable feed-through.
