LOCFIELD® Freeform Antenna

An innovative Antenna technology for UHF RFID, wireless communication and energizing of sensor networks.

Stimulating engineering creativity—exciting new features enable flexible and precise designs of RFID read zones and custom tailored solutions.

The LOCFIELD® antenna is a specific type of coaxial cable antenna. It can be manufactured in various diameters and lengths. The electromagnetic field follows the cable irrespective how complex its path may be. This leads to unique new features and opens up an almost unlimited spectrum of new possibilities:

  • 3D shapes of almost arbitrary form

  • Variable lengths in the range from ~30 cm to ~10 m and more

  • Installation in metal enclosures or even onto metal surfaces

  • Coherent read read zones along the antenna path

  • Read range precisely adjustable in the range from 1 cm to ~1.5 m, simply by variation of reader power

  • Fast and simple installation, e.g. like mounting a cable

 

Rapid deployment of challenging solutions is now possible

A LOCFIELD® UHF RFID antenna is perfect for inventorying metal cabintes

Deploying UHF RFID based EAS- or door-portals for access or trespass surveillance is straight forward.

With the freeform LOCFIELD® antenna smart shelves can be individually configured in a few minutes
