- Specifically developed for forklift installations
- Enables fast and inexpensive installations
- Flexible and configurable to support changing application needs
- Available in both FCC and ETSI frequencies
With its unique, mostly metal design, the Intermec Antenna Cell is an RFID antenna specifically developed for forklift installations where shock and vibration can far exceed the specifications of antennas designed for fixed RFID reader applications. Complete with mounting hardware, Antenna Cells can be mounted with no drilling, cutting or welding which enables fast and inexpensive installations for a single forklift or fleet deployments. Antenna Cells are available in both FCC and ETSI frequencies.
Antenna Cells leverage another new product, the Adaptable Load Backrest (ALBR), developed in partnership with Cascade Corporation, the world’s leader in the design and manufacture of lift truck attachments. The Antenna Cells can be mounted into an ALBR in about a half hour, as opposed to spending a day of field engineering time to install RFID equipment onto a forklift the “old fashioned” way.
Antenna Cells mounted into ALBRs are flexible and configurable for quick and inexpensive reconfigurations to support changing application needs such as converting from pallet tag reading to case level reading. This modular approach enables Antenna Cells to be interchangeable for quick replacement of damaged parts lessening slow downs in a busy operation.
Antenna Cells are sold by Intermec Technologies and its distributors and partners. ALBRs are manufactured and sold by Cascade Corporation. They are built to order for specific forklift models.
