RFID antennas

Reliable identification - in any situation

Your Benefits

  • Optimally aligned antenna characteristics prevent faulty readings, therefore ensuring high process stability
  • Reliable operation thanks to rugged design - even under rough industrial environments
  • Low-cost extension of the detection range due to the connection of several external antennas to an RFU63x
  • Large ambient temperature range enables reliable use even under extreme weather conditions
  • Omni-directional reading of transponders thanks to circular antenna polarization


Reliable identification - in any situation

Industry-compliant RFID antennas from SICK are available for both the HF and UHF frequency ranges. The large range of sizes offers the right antenna for every application and installation situation. The rugged design was developed specially for the challenging application conditions in industrial environments and outdoor areas. Depending on the antenna and transponders, read ranges of up to 300 mm (HF) or 10 m (UHF) can be achieved. The RFH630 (HF) and RFU63x (UHF) RFID read/write devices from SICK can be used for antenna operation. The RFU63x offers facilities for connecting for several antennas. This means several reading points can be realized and challenging reading situations can be solved from various angles using transponder detection.
