Proven by nearly 10,000 installations, our patented wave® Antenna brings a new level of performance, ease of use, installation, and aesthetics to RFID Portal users.

So What is so Different about a Plug and Play Portal?

Our superior newave portals require no adjustment during or after installation. Literally just plug the portal into your reader on site and you are ready to go! System Integrators tell us our plug & play portals are up to five times faster to install than a typical patch portal, these are the first truly plug&play portals available.

How do we do it?

Newave uniquely embeds two wave antennas in a composite material that can be enclosed in any one of a variety of structures that best fit the facility’s needs. Because the wave antenna can be embedded it stays precisely in alignment even in a rugged environment. Wave embedded antennas provide controlled reads with a desired narrow illumination path of approximately 100°. This becomes ideal for any exit and entrance application since there may be tags in close proximity that are not passing through the exit or entry and these tags will not be read. Patch Antenna Portals cannot make any of these claims.
