To all of the RFID professionals out there, I wanted to share this very basic video with you, which explains UHF RFID antenna basics...including Linear vs. Circularly Polarized antenna patterns, and how they affect tag reading. I found this very helpful for the people that I work with, both employees and clients, who do not have a firm grasp on the basic workings of RFID, and the interation between UHF RFID antennas, and UHF RFID tags.
Take a look at this 5 minute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Dxm7Z7F9OI
I wanted to note that in the video, our most popular antenna is prminantly featured...the Laird Technologies / RFMAX 10x10 inch, cirucularly polarized, UHF panel antennas (Part #'s and links below) These are absolutely the work horses of the industry. When it comes to general purpose RFID antennas, nothing beats these models. They have a track record of over 15 years in the field, and are an econimal choice for high volume RFID projects.
