The ultra slim FlexiRay SF-110X model is the newest of the thin antenna Barco’s product range, available for both ETSI and FCC frequencies. The antenna dimensions are just 155 x 100 x 2 mm for ETSI version and 110 x 100 x 2 mm for FCC version. Thus enables to create RFID reading zones wherever short range, small and thin esthetic antennas are required, the application requires small & invisible embedded antennas or simply wherever lacking enough space to deploy standard conventional antennas.
Even with small form factor, if necessary the antenna can achieve range more than 2 m (tested with Alien and Impinj reader 30 dBm, 4m RG-58 cable, Alien Squiggle tag). Thus the SF-110X can be very good esthetic and cost effective option for desktop, access control, embedded kiosks and smart rack applications in retail, libraries, call and data centers, government, army & DoD, office and other commercial environments.
Antenna can be optionally equipped with robust all-metal enclosure and provided as rugged antenna model, FlexiRay™ SFR-110X, designed for industrial and manufacturing applications. Robust all-metal construction was specially developed to be used in demanding industrial environments. Thus the SFR-110X antenna can be used for product traceability and manufacturing applications.

Proper antenna parameters and design are necessary prerequisite for success in majority of RFID UHF applications. Our aim is to provide our partners full slim line antenna range to have a complete set of antennas and flexible solution for RFID UHF deployments," clarified Tomas Kubicek, Marketing & Business Development Manager, Barco.
