CHOOSE THE RIGHT ANTENNA FOR YOUR APPLICATION


Zebra's complete family of RFID antennas meets the needs of virtually any RFID application. Choose the antenna that is designed for your environment — carpeted, industrial or outdoors, delivers the right level of performance, meets mounting requirements and fits in your budget.

GENERAL PURPOSE

AN200: GENERAL PURPOSE ANTENNA FOR INDOOR OR OUTDOOR APPLICATION


Get the convenience of a versatile antenna that can be utilized throughout your enterprise, from the warehouse floor and production line to outside the dock door. Able to withstand extreme heat and cold as well as moisture and vibration, the AN200 is ideal for nearly any application, including retail, manufacturing, wholesale distribution, healthcare, government and more.
This all-purpose antenna can be used in standard RFID applications with power levels up to one watt, as well as custom high-power applications requiring up to 20 watts. The antenna is traditionally used in pairs, with right and left hand polarization.

AN440: LARGE AREA COVERAGE FOR HIGH-CAPACITY, HIGH THROUGHPUT ENVIRONMENTS


Need to keep track of thousands of assets? High product density and heavy traffic across a large area? Get the capacity and range you demand for reliable RFID tag reading with the AN440 high-performance RFID area antenna. A good-looking, rugged general-purpose area antenna, the AN440 is designed to perform exceptionally in all environments, customer-facing or industrial, indoors and out.
The AN440 RFID Antenna gives you a wide read field and high-speed RF signal conversion, so data capture is fast and accurate, even in expansive, high-demand environments. The AN440 is easy to mount on ceilings and walls, and its rugged white housing is at home in both customer-facing and industrial settings. So you can achieve superior read zones around stockroom shelves, warehouse doorways and dock platforms – anywhere boxes and pallets are moving into and out of your facility. Your workflow keeps flowing, your inventory count stays accurate and your productivity can reach new heights.

AN480: WIDE BAND ANTENNA FOR WORLDWIDE USE


The AN480 single port antenna offers maximum performance and flexibility. The low axial ratio is nearly 50 percent lower than typical competitive devices, delivering a more uniform gain — and better performance. The wide frequency range enables this antenna to be utilized in worldwide deployments, providing cost-efficiencies and a simplified RFID infrastructure. The AN480 can be installed throughout the enterprise in manufacturing and warehouse floor environments, or any dock door receiving application. As with all Zebra antennas, the AN480 uses Zebra's standard mounting bracket — mounting the antenna for the first time or upgrading an existing Zebra antenna with the AN480 is fast and easy.

SLIM LINE

AN600 SERIES: SLIM LINE, ULTRA-LOW PROFILE ANTENNA


When your application calls for a “picture-frame” aesthetic antenna deployment, look to the newest ultra-low profile members of the Zebra family – the AN610 and AN620 Slimline Antennas. The AN610 and AN620 feature a simple, integrated mounting system that lets them stand just under one-half inch (12mm) from horizontal or vertical mounting surfaces. Space-saving and stylish, the outer housing is designed to be sleek and discreet enough to be at home in any business setting but rugged enough for indoor industrial environments. A perfect complement to the FX7400 RFID reader, the AN600 series antennas are ideally suited for use in wall mount, doorways, under counter, above counter as an RFID pad, on shelves, POS or end-cap displays like jewelry counter applications.

COMPACT

AN700 SERIES: COMPACT ANTENNAS FOR CUSTOMER FACING ENVIRONMENTS


The AN700 Series antennas offer all the features required for carpeted and customer-facing environments. A perfect complement to Zebra's FX7400 RFID Reader, the AN700 Series antennas are extremely compact, offering the aesthetics required for the most discreet installation in the most space constrained areas — for example, under the point of sale (POS) counter. The integrated mounting bracket enables easy installation in minutes. The AN710 is designed for inside the four walls. The rugged AN720 is designed to withstand exposure to rain, snow and extreme temperatures — ideal for the receiving dock doors or outdoor shopping areas.

The antenna frequency specification and label is a characteristic trait of the antenna’s peak frequency response. The RFID reader, when professionally installed and selected for a country of operation, dictates the actual frequency of transmission/reception to ensure regulatory compliance for operation in a designated country. The actual frequency specification of the antenna is not material to regulatory compliance.

The AN200 will perform reasonably well in EU frequency in most applications.
