Functional principle Transponder Positioning with Antenne HG G-98870
Functional Principle

The transponder antenna HG G-98870 determines the longitudinal position of a vehicle or crane by continuously detection of passive transponders installed on or in the ground (depending on the type) under the antenna.

When a transponder is crossed, the antenna induces a supply voltage into the transponder and receives the unique transponder code in response. At the same time, the position of the transponder relative to the center of the antenna field is measured.

Using the transponder position data stored in the antenna processor (transponder list), the absolute longitudinal position of the antenna is determined and output via the bus interface.
