Meshed Systems is a distributor specializing in RFID components by award-winning technical support.

This new generation of very flat circular polarized antennas will strengthen our market presence and offer our wide range of customers now another new opportunity for innovative solutions in the RFID area,"says Dipl. Ing. Dr. Michael E. Wernle, CEO of Meshed Systems GmbH.
The modular FlexiRay UHF antennas, designed by Barco, differentiate by its slim design, its unique UHF field distribution pattern, their thin profile, a well-defined reading zone and a quick and simple installation. By developing a version in a metal case (FlexiRay SFR) and an ultra-thin version for embedded applications (FlexiRay SF), both in different lengths, the realization of individual IT solutions is possible. The reading range of up to 4 meters depends on the type of antenna, the power of the used reader, the cable length and the characteristics of the transponder.
"With Meshed Systems we gain a partner with long term experience in RFID and benefit from the strong position in the German-speaking market," commented Tomas Kubicek, Marketing and Business Development Manager of Barco. "We are pleased to address with Meshed Systems important markets in the field of retail, logistics and transportation.”
Both types of antennas are already available for ETSI and FCC area at Meshed Systems.
