I had a customer contact me this morning, very frustrated that he could not find a way to mount the Motorola / Zebra AN480 antennas he had purchased for his RFID project. I told him that the AN480 antennas from Zebra have a customize mounting bolt pattern, specifically so you can’t buy mounts anywhere else – BUT they never came out with any decent mounts. So, here is what I recommended to him, and to you...
Purchase RFMAX part # S9028PCx96RTN (same exact antenna, IP54 rated, but with pre-attached 8 foot/96 inch cable & RPTNC connector) http://www.arcantenna.com/s9028pcl96rtn-s9028pcr96rtn-10x10-inch-ip54-rated-circularly-polarized-rfid-antenna-with-4-mounting-studs-fcc.html
Or, purchase RFMAX part # PAx90209H-FNF (same antenna, IP67 rated, with fixed N-Female connector) http://www.arcantenna.com/pal90209h-fnf-par90209h-fnf10x10-inch-ip-67-rated-circularly-polarized-antenna-fcc.html
These two antennas can utilize the HEAVY DUTY mount, which locks firmly in place, RFMAX part # HDMNT: http://www.arcantenna.com/hdmnt-heavy-duty-aluminum-mounting-bracket-wall-or-mast-mount.html
Or, they can utilize our fully articulating, easy to install EZM6 mount: http://www.arcantenna.com/fully-articulating-die-cast-wall-or-mast-mounting-kit-for-2-or-4-stud-panel-antennas.html
