Kathrein SmartShelf Antennas KRAI
The intelligent SMSH SmartShelf antenna is an extremely thin and lightweight RFID flat antenna optimized for integration in Kanban, shelf or PoS applications.
In the industrial sector, this means that the warehouse management and ordering processes can be fully automated.
The smart-shelf antennas have FAKRA connectors, known from the automotive industry. These robust and vibration-resistant connectors are coded and lock in place with a click.
With these FAKRA connectors, the smart-shelf antennas are connected in seconds, which makes installation in large rollout projects considerably easier and thus reduces installation costs.
Another advantage, especially in large installations, is the cascading feature of the smart-shelf antennas, supported by the Kathrein @KRAI RFID antenna interface. With this feature, up to 32 smart-shelf antennas can be cascaded and controlled centrally via only one reader.
