Optional controlled via Kathrein RFID Antenna Interface ©KRAI, read range: up to 18 m, different far field half-power beam widths in azimuth and elevation plane
The WRA 6060 antenna has been developed for applications in the area of point of sale, smart shelf applications and Kanban solutions. The antenna is characterised by an extremely homogeneous read zone which is emitted by the high front-to-back ratio. Therefore, it is suitable for static detection of multiple transponders. Due to its thin design, the antenna can be integrated into different applications.
Wide Range 40° linear antenna, read range up to 10 m, optimized for lane-selective vehicle detection.
For classic far-field applications with large reading distances, the wide range antennas (WRA) are the optimal choice. They are characterised by a very low axial ratio for circular polarisation, whereby the dependence of reading results upon the position or alignment of tags is significantly reduced. For this reason, they are also the ideal solution for portal applications in addition to many other application possibilities.
Applications in radiating near field, extremely small dimensions, reading range: < 20 cm, extremely high selectivity, not influenced by metal
Near-field applications, extremely slim design, reading range: 0-3 m, homogeneous detection field very high front-to-back ration, Up to 32 antennas can be cascaded, optional without cascade function available and antenna protection cover

The RFID Windshield Label serves for the automatic, contactless identification of vehicles (Automatic Vehicle Identification, AVI). The label is adhered to the inside of the windshield. The development of the RFID Windshield Label was focused on a very high read range, thanks to special antenna behind glass and a passive function without battery. Tag authentication using AES coprocessor and 128-bit AES unique crypto key. Privacy protection via untraceable command and 128-bit AES group crypto key. Trust Provisioning of Secure Secrets. The label material is a combination of PP and PET layer extra security die-cuts improve security against removal and re-use.
