Times-7 has developed an antenna selection guide, which helps to break down which type of beam shape is right for your application and then which Times-7 RAIN (UHF) RFID antenna is the right fit for you.
WHY IS THE BEAM SHAPE IMPORTANT?
System integrators are often challenged with 100% tag detection accuracy and stray (unintended) tags isolation. Although the tag readability and stray tag filtering can be achieved using the features in the reader software, reader antennas and their specific beam shapes do play a vital role in these aspects.
An uncontrolled RF spill by far-field antennas causes stray tag detection while low power RF radiation leads to low tag detection read accuracy.
Based on these facts, Times-7 created an antenna guide approaching the selection process from a new angle.
