The Echo-N is a true UHF RFID nearfield antenna for the European frequency range of 868 MHz. The antenna has no real far-field which minimizes false reads due to unplanned reflections. Even when operating several systems in the vicinity of each other disturbances are minimal.
The dimensions of the compact housing are 102 x 85 x 25 mm (plus the antenna connector at the bottom). This connector used is a robust R-TNC connector. The housing is IP65 (water and dustproof).
In the back, the housing is closed by a solid aluminum plane which shields the antenna against unwanted influences from the surrounding environment. The plane has riveted threads that can be used to mount the antenna with the matching mount.
