RFID Antenna

The Wave® Antenna is the first and only antenna specifically designed to be used for item-level RFID solutions. Patch antennas radiate a single beam in a given direction, but the Wave® antenna uses multiple beams to read tags in any position. (See the illustrations below.) Wave® antennas are the only ones that use a three-dimensional read pattern to eliminate fading.

Antenna Radiation Pattern

Wave® antennas are designed to uniformly illuminate a volume of space. When installed in pairs, the antennas complement each other and provide spatial, direction-of-arrival, and polarization diversities throughout the volume.
