Times-7: What Makes the A5010 the Antenna of Choice?

Versatile Antenna for Industrial RFID Applications!

Antennas take energy from an RFID reader and transmit it in RF waves to RFID tags. RFID Readers are the "brains" of an RFID system, making RFID antennas the hands because they send RF waves to the tags. Every antenna has distinguishing characteristics, which makes selecting the right one essential. Our A5010 antenna has a high IP67 rating and is a great high gain antenna.

Are You Looking for a Small, Robust Antenna?

The A5010 antenna is the latest and greatest IP67 rated Circularly Polarized panel antenna on the RFID market. It's 10 x 10 inches and is less than 0.55 inches thick, which allows it to be placed in a large variety of locations. In addition, the unit's performance is excellent, offering 8.5 dBic of gain within the frequency of 902-928 Mhz.

It is available for both FCC and ETSI bandwidths and is fitted with a fixed, side entry SMA-Female connector. The A5010 is a low-cost, small form-factor RFID antenna that is versatile enough to meet the needs of virtually any industrial RFID application.

What are my Mounting and Cable Options with an A5010 Antenna?

The A5010 was designed to support either flush or VESA mount. To accommodate both approaches, versions with either flush or studded backplates are supported. Flush mounting can be adjusted by attaching screws or bolts through the corner holes in the housing or by using double-sided industrial tape on the backplate.

The 100 mm VESA spacing supports standard VESA brackets that are available from a wide range of suppliers. To install an A5010, please ensure that only finger tightness is used for the SMA connector. The use of tools to tighten the connector will apply excessive force and will damage the connector. Avoid any load or bending strength from the cable on the connector.

All RFID applications and systems are different, so it is essential to get advice when you are unsure which antenna is best for you. For example, the A5010 is best when you are after an extended read range in challenging environments. Still uncertain if this antenna is the right fit for your application?
