RFID Antenna

Initially designed for boundary/threshold crossing applications, the ImpinjThreshold antenna has a very wide beam width to maximize zone coverage.Threshold antennas provide a consistent and continuous read zone when linearly distributed head-to-tail. At 46 x 9 x 2 cm, the Threshold antenna’s planar form factor fits readily onto fencing or other borders.

  • Strong far-field performance
  • Wide beam width to maximize zone coverage
  • Low profile form factor of 457 x 89 x 19 mm
  • Optimized performance for operation from 902–928 MHz

Electrical Specifications

All electrical characteristics are derived, measured, and tested with the antenna embedded within a polyurethane cable protector. These specifications are not guaranteed if the antenna is used outside of an Impinj-approved cable protector. The specifications are guaranteed at 915 MHz.
