Antenna with magnetic core

The main difference between Ferroxtag and standard High Frequency (13.56 MHz) tags is the antenna. The magnetic core of the Ferroxtag attracts the magnetic field generated by the reader, thus making it suitable for operation in difficult RF environments, such as liquids and metals.

The magnetic core enables the possibility to minimize the size of the antenna, but also makes it possible to achieve very long reading ranges with a reasonably big antenna dimensions.

And finally, the sensitive reading direction is parallel to the item where the tag is attached to. This means that reflection on metals is not a problem, the tag will be activated even when the tag is directly attached to the metallic surface.
