Times-7: A5060 Circular High Gain RFID Antenna

An exciting new addition to the SlimLine range of multi-purpose antennas, the A5060 is a circular polarized high gain antenna with an ultra-low profile, offering a read range of up to 10 m / 33 ft.

The A5060 is designed with a multi-element array to avoid distortion for maximum readability in a highly reflective and densely populated tag environment. This makes the A5060 ideal for industrial portal applications.

Its standard physical size (600 mm x 300 mm / 2’ x 1’) allows the A5060 to be readily mounted behind ceiling tiles, in cabinets or to cover large bench tops. The A5060 can be either flush mounted using the six integrated mounting holes or VESA mounted using the Times-7 Mounting Plate.

Times-7: True NearField RFID Antenna Family

Presenting the Times-7 New True NearField Antenna Family: A1115, A1130, A1163

The new True NearField Antenna Series is explicitly designed for applications, which require “near zone only” tag detection or involve metals, liquid and other challenging materials.

With hardly any far-field components and no surface dead spots, the Times-7 True NearField antennas provide reliable tag reads within a very constricted read zone.

Thanks to the unique antenna design the True NearField antenna series offers three dimensions. From a compact 150 x 150 mm to a large 300 x 600 mm footprint. Furthermore, they are available in black or white.

All three antennas provide integrated mounting holes on the rear side, which can be drilled through for using mounting screws. In addition, each antenna is provided with an optional self-adhesive rubber feet kit to stop the antenna from slipping.

  • Radome Material: Fire retardant ABS (available in black and white, see order information
  • Environmental Rating: IP54
  • Operating Temperature: 0 to +50 °C / -30 to +50 °C
  • Storage Temperature: +32 to +122 °F / -22 to +122 °F
  • Frequency Range: 865 – 867 MHz, 902 – 928 MHz
