With product tracking a major issue, ifm electronic has introduced the new UHF RFID system. Using the 865-870 MHz band (there is also a 902-928 MHz variant for the North American market), the new system offers flexibility on a standard platform.

Flexibility is enhanced by the selection of antennae available. For the European range there are five.

The more compact ultra-low and low range will read tags in close proximity without seeing adjacent tags, making them the most selective.

A mid-range antenna will pick up data from a tag up to 2m away, while the long range options can even read a tag at 7m.
