View Technologies Issues Pair of Smart Antennas

View Technologies has made commercially available the Echo 300 and Echo 302 smart antennas for capturing real-time data for items incorporating RAIN RFID (Passive UHF) tags in retail, manufacturing and logistics.

The two antennas feature a reader capable of both Power over Ethernet (POE+) and AC power. The Echo 300 is designed for wide-area, open and high-ceiling environments, while the Echo 302 is meant for environments with lower ceilings. The equipment can be installed with a single cable for both power and network per antenna. The bidirectional, electronically steerable phased arrays can achieve up to a 150-foot operating range with standard passive UHF RFID tags. According to View Technologies, they can locate tags with high levels of accuracy – three feet or better in ideal environments, with either a single or several smart antennas. The Echo smart antennas use the InView Software Platform, built to enable third-party applications to run more efficiently and accurately. It offers location-based data to locate, track and act on real-time data from items incorporating RAIN RFID (Passive UHF) tags in retail, manufacturing and logistics.
