Product Overview



The antenna should be mounted permanently and securely on a mounting panel in accordance with all installation instructions.





For best results, point the antenna towards the center of the coverage area. A line-of-sight path between the antenna and active floor locations work best. Although signals in these bands penetrate interior walls with little attenuation, reinforced block walls, banks of metal cabinets, or steel shelving may attenuate signals or cause multipath, a condition where reflected signals interfere wit the primary signal path. Avoid mounting next to a column or vertical support that could a "shadow zone" of reduced coverage.




The antenna radiates a circularly polarized signal in a diretional pattern. Securely mount the antenna to a metal plate using the appropriate size nuts and locking hardware.

    Cannot Obtain Cable to Connect to Cottonwood RFID Board

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Jun 2014

    I contacted LinkSprite and explained that I needed to connect the 8 dBi antenna to the Cottonwood Long Range UHF RFID reader UART (ISO18000-6C EPC G2) and then ordered the antenna and adapter cable. The adapter cable does not connect to either the 8 dBi antenna or the Cottonwood, so I have a RFID radio board and an antenna that cannot be used together. When I received the Cottonwood it would not communicate through the UART. After submitting a ticket I was told that newer revisions of Cottonwood are set to 9600 baud, not 115200 as the documentation states. Perhaps the products may actually work, but I now regret purchasing LinkSprite products because of the poor documentation and service. These problems have cost me much more time and money than the price of the products.
