The SLS RFID 4th Generation smartPORTAL™ is designed to be installed in harsh industrial environments. Each antenna enclosure is constructed with extruded aluminum and is anchored to the concrete floor. Each enclosure includes two Wave® Antennas. The enclosures include antenna back planes to direct signal into the designed read zone and eliminates adjacent dock-door reads.
The smartPORTAL™ is truly plug-and-play; all required components to RFID-enable a dock door are in place. The SLS smartPORTAL™ can be entirely powered using Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) including RFID reader, light stack and photo eye; no AC voltage is required thus reducing infrastructure cost and complexity.
Our Wave® Antennas used in the smartPORTAL™ are unique in covering all three tag orientations within a user defined zone up to a 10x10x10 foot zone. Our antenna design creates a wide-angle lens effect which covers all three polarizations at once and are designed to work in high fading and multipath environments to provide superior UHF zone coverage.
