Antenna Similar to Alien’s ALR8696-C

Posted by Michael Crudele on

Recently a client approached us about the Alien part # ALR8696-C. They were developing new software and need an antenna that utilized LHCP (left-hand circular polarization), which part # ALR8696-C does not. In response, I have come up with two suggestions, both of which come in LH and RH circular polarizations.   Suggestion 1 RCPL-902-09-SNF: This antenna measures in at 10 x 10 inches and features a gain of 9 dBic, a fixed N-Female connector, and an IP rating of 67.   Suggestion 2 RCPL-902-8-RTM-8: This antenna is the industry standard for passive UHF VHF RFID installations. It measures in...

Recently, a client reached out to us to question whether or not we sell/ stock the Times-7 Universal Mounting Plate 71757 for A5010 and A5020’s.

Posted by Michael Crudele on

Recently, a client approached us about a 10” antenna that could be used in the EU area, so we have a few suggestions…   10 x 10-inch Flush Mount, R8658-LPF-SSF: A circularly polarized ETSI outdoor RFID antenna from RFMAX that measures in at 10 x 10 inches.
