Q) What is the difference between part numbers RDA698/2700SSM and RDA698/2700-1-SSM?

 

A) Firstly, I want to pose a question. Will you need to pass any carrier certification testing for your device? If you do need a certification, it leads me to the main difference between the two antennas. Part # RDA698/2700SSM does not have a high enough “efficiency” to pass the testing that AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint require. On the other hand, part # RDA698/2700-1-SSM is recommended if you plan on receiving a carrier certification. This antenna costs a bit more but will easily pass the carrier test for all brands. Below you will find a difference in the construction of each antenna.

Can RFMAX HDMNT-100MM be used with square posts?

August 29, 2019 1:30:22 PM EDT

Q) Can the RFMAX part # HDMNT-100MM be used with square posts?

 

A) Yes, you can use RFMAX’s HDMNT-100MM on square posts. There are three ways you can do this and it can be fairly simple to accomplish. There are three ways you can set up the bracket and it depends on whether the post is metal or wood. If the post is wooden, you can align the mounting holes vertically parallel to the post and drive lag bolts into the wooden beam. If the post is metal, you can drill and use a nut and bolt combination to mount the bracket directly to the post. The bracket can also be fixed to a wooden or metal post with the straps given with the HDMNT-100MM mount. Images are located below. 

 

Mount Instruction HDMT-100MM mounted on a pole

  

Please note that such type of installation can be used with thick posts, bollards, and poles more than 3 inches in diameter.

RFID Journal Live! 2015 Show Recap

May 13, 2015 7:25:00 AM EDT

Arcadian Launches RFMAX Brand at RFID Live! 2015

 

It's been several weeks now since the RFID Journal Live! Tradeshow in San Diego, and now that we've managed to catch our breath (at least a little), we can offer a few reflections on 2015's premiere RFID event.

 

To begin with, show attendance was at it's the highest level since 2008, and the increase in traffic from the past few years was noticeable. A good sign that business is continuing to recover, and that the RFID space continues to grow. While many attendees were RFID industry insiders and familiar faces, a significant proportion were also end users from virtually every industry imaginable. More good news for the RFID space as a whole, and for growing RFID adoption in general.

 

As for Arcadian, we utilized this year's show to launch our new brand of RFID products from RFMAX. Key products are shown included RFMAX Passive RFID Antennas and Antenna Cables; RFID Weatherproof Reader Enclosures, and the RFMAX Power Mapper. Traffic to the booth was steady for all 3 days of the event, with plenty of people taking notice of the new RFMAX product line. Interest in antennas and weatherproof enclosures was fantastic, but the RFMAX Power Mapper literally stole the show... in fact, we sold out our entire stock of Power Mappers while we were there! (not to worry if you didn't get yours yet... we've since replenished our stock and have more on the way).

 

Overall, we see interest in RFID applications and products continuing to bloom, and are thrilled with the response we received for our new RFMAX line. A great show this year all the way around. Our sincere thanks to all of our customers, partners, and friends, along with the RFID Journal staff for making this year's RFID Journal Live show one for the books!

We just received results from independent testing of the RFMAX Power Mapper, and the results confirmed exactly what we've been hearing from our customers: The RFMAX RFID Power Mapper does what it says it will, and is an indispensable tool for setting up and troubleshooting any RFID installation. 

 

According to the report: "This instrument should be a standard part of any RFID installer’s toolbox".

This question has come up several times, and I would like to address it in detail.  See my notes below on each of the EZ mounts and what their maximum weight loads are.  Keep in mind that there are TWO ratings for each mount.

EZ-M6-COMBO - ARCADIAN INC.

A “static” rating, for antennas that will be mounted in a secure location and not be subjected to any vibration at all.

 

A “subject to vibration” rating, for antennas that will be mounted in a location that is subject to ANY shake or vibration.  That could be the obvious, like on a vehicle, or the less obvious, like next to a stamping machine, or next to a loading dock.

 

Here is my input:

 

We are no longer recommending the EZP4 in 2015.  With the popularity of the EZM6 (6 inch die cast aluminum RFID antenna mounting bracket) most customers are leaning towards spending a few extra dollars for this model, and we are spending more and more of our inventory dollars on stocking the EZM6 (wall, mast & combo)

 

Notes:

 

EZM6: 5 lbs. (static install) or 2 lbs. (if subject to vibration)  Suitable for:

  • Laird 10x10” models (S9028PC, PAL902909, PAR90209)
  • MTI 12x12” models (MT-262006)
  • Times-7 smaller models (A6031, A6032)

 

EZM9: 10 lbs. (static install) or 5 lbs. (if subject to vibration)  Suitable for:

  • Laird 10x10” models (S9028PC, PAL902909, PAR90209)
  • Laird 10x20” model (PRL90209)
  • MTI 12x12” models (MT-262006)
  • Times-7 smaller models (A6031, A6032)
  • Times-7 larger models (A6034 & A6034S) *with or without the sheet metal mounting plate* 

 

If you are using the EZ mounts in conjunction with Times 7 antenna #'s, A6031, A6032, A6034 or A6034S, you will also require a Times 7 mounting plates.

I wanted to take a moment to inform our RFID clients about a GREAT tool that many RFID professionals feel is an essential part of their "toolkit" in the field:

 

The RFID Power Mapper from RFMAX is a small (2 1/4 x 2 3/4 inches) hand-held unit that measures relative antenna strength for both linear and circular RFID antennas in the FCC: 902-928 MHz & ETSI: 865-868 MHz ranges.

 

The unit does NOT require batteries, so it's always ready when you need it.  It simply uses radiated RF power like an RFID tag, and displays signal strength on a simple to read analog gauge.  I find it most helpful when comparing one antenna vs. another's gain and beam width in a particular installation, or simply to test whether we are getting signal from a particular antenna node.

 

This simple tool can save the professional RFID system integrator a tremendous about of time on the job.  Click the photo below for our product page which will give you a complete overview of the device, and the option to order from our STOCK.
