Alien 8697

Low VSWR/Axial Ratio Antenna

The Alien Technology ALR-8697 is a high-performance, worldwide, circular-polarized antenna for use in demanding applications. Both the ALR-8697 and ALR-8698 antenna utilize the same form-factor but offer different gain. The ALR-8697 is a 8.5dBic gain antenna for use with the the ALR-F800 and ALR-9680 readers.

The Alien Technologies ALR-8697 antenna is a circularly polarized panel antenna that provides reception and transmission of signals in the 865-928 MHz frequency band. The design methodology achieves maximum efficiency and performance across the entire frequency band and tag orientations.

Both VSWR and axial ratios are both excellent and allow the user to achieve the maximum performance for an antenna of this type. The antenna is housed in a heavy duty radome enclosure that can be directly wall mounted via standard VESA mounting techniques.

Both the ALR-8697 and ALR-8698 antenna have exactly the same footprint so can be interchanged if needed and both have the same inset reverse TNC connector that helps to protect it from knocks and damage.
