The modular FlexiRay UHF antennas, designed by Barco, differentiate by its slim design, its unique UHF field distribution pattern, their thin profile, a well-defined reading zone and a quick and simple installation. By developing a version in a metal case (FlexiRay SFR) and an ultra-thin version for embedded applications (FlexiRay SF), both in different lengths, the realisation of individual IT solutions is possible. The reading range of up to 4 meters depends on the type of antenna, the power of the used reader, the cable length and the characteristics of the transponder.
