RFID Readers & Antennas

Intermec fully delivers on the promise of scalable Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems, offering a complete suite of Intermec RFID readers, RFID antennas, and services backed by a decade of experience in RFID technology and industry‐leading partners.

Intermec supports the latest EPCglobal and ISO passive UHF air‐interface protocols, and is certified for use in countries across the globe. With Intermec’s easy‐to‐use Basic Reader Interface (BRI), customers and partners can easily integrate with or deploy and manage readers on common network infrastructures. In addition, Intermec supports the EPCglobal Low Level Reader Protocol (LLRP) standard for seamless integration with business solutions such as IBM® WebSphere® RFID, and Microsoft® BizTalk® RFID.

Lowry Solutions is a Global Systems Integrator of complete technology solutions for diverse application requirements, integrating RFID and barcode technology to increase efficiency, accuracy, and productivity. Contact Lowry’s team of RFID technology experts to learn more about Intermec’s Handheld RFID Readers, Fixed RFID Readers, and RFID Antennas.


Handheld RFID Readers

Intermec handheld RFID readers allow users to take the technology to the point of work — whether it’s on the shop floor, the store floor, or the receiving dock. These devices are ideal for use in the field for asset tracking, field service applications, and use by mobile workers.


Fixed RFID Readers

Intermec fixed RFID readers meet the highest industry and deployment standards. From reading pallets as they move through portals, to cartons on high‐speed conveyor belts, Intermec’s fixed readers are rugged, easy to configure, and provide control of peripheral devices and sensors for effective, accurate RFID supply chain management.

Intermec RFID fixed readers offer best‐in‐class read performance and include support for Intermec’s exclusive Advanced RFID Extensions (ARX). These devices allow for greater accuracy reading tags over readers utilizing less versatile commodity chipsets. Packaged in a small, lightweight, durable enclosure, Intermec fixed RFID readers are suited for nearly any environment, such as industrial, warehouse, and manufacturing operations.


RFID Antennas

Intermec RFID antennas are specifically designed for fixed applications, such as vehicle mount applications, where shock and vibration can far exceed average industry specifications. Intermec RFID antennas provide the vital link between reader and tag that moves data back and forth.

RFID antenna solutions include:

  • A circularly polarized patch antenna designed to increase signal reception in environments where there is a presence of multipath and high scattering
  • A left‐hand circular polarized panel antenna appropriate for use in indoor, FCC-regulated environments. It can be used to support stationary RFID applications requiring long‐read range
  • 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. This solution precisely compartmentalizes the Antenna Cells and RFID reader into areas of the load backrest that don’t obstruct the operator’s vision and are protected from damage
