Low frequency transponder systems are the method of choice in metallic and hydrous environments. To achieve high energy efficiency in mobile reader devices the antenna circuit is designed for a high quality factor. Metal in e.g. industrial and medical environments has a significant influence on such systems. An analysis of the influences of metal on the reader circuit impedance and the energy transfer function is presented. A smart approach to compensate the detuning of resonant circuits in mobile devices due to metallic environment is given. Finally applications in metallic environments from the current research are presented.
