Equivalent to Intermec Antenna 1309-57-0087 Needed

Posted by Michael Crudele on

An RFID system integrator came in this afternoon complaining that after Intermec discontinued antenna part # 1309-57-0087, they had no equivalent high-gain RFID antennas to offer their clients.  


The 1309-57-0087 antenna has the following specifications: 

  • Size: 14.6 x 14.6 inches & 4.4 Lbs.
  • Frequency Range: 902-928 MHz (UHF, FCC, RFID)
  • Gain: 10 dBic
  • Polarity: RHCP/right hand circularly
  • Rating: IP67 - outdoor rated
  • Beamwidth: 60 x 45 degrees at 3 dB


Here is what we suggested (below) If you are in the same situation, these are models that you should consider: 


A6034: (12x30 inches) /a6034-70809-30x12-inch-circularly-polarized-slimline-rfid-antenna-fcc.html

A6034 SlimLine Antenna 

A6034S: (15x15 inches) /a6034s-71003-15x15-inch-circularly-polarized-slimline-rfid-antenna-fcc.html



These models offer 9 dBic of gain (vs. 10 dBic)  but they do have very good propagation, and typically are your best choice to replace the Intermec models.
