Introducing the A5020 LX & A5020 MR

Announcing a new era of SlimLine™, compact, durable and aesthetically-pleasing RAIN (UHF) RFID antennas.  

Times-7 is delighted to launch the newest members of the industry-leading A5020 family of RAIN (UHF) RFID antennas. 

This extends the A5020 family to a total of 4 models (each with ETSI and FCC variants where applicable), all of which take advantage of Times-7s SlimLine™ design and performance characteristics. 

A5020 LX Linear Extreme 

The new A5020 LX antenna is now IP69K rated.  It can operate in extreme environmental conditions, including temperatures as low as -90°C (-130°F), and wherever high-pressure water cleaning is required.  While all A5020 antennas are high performing, slim and rugged with an IP68 rating, the A5020LX is designed for more demanding environments.  This linear polarized antenna also has an effective read range of >6 meters. 

A5020 MR Medium Range 

The new A5020 MR antenna has been designed and engineered based on input from our customers.  While retaining the richness of the A5020 feature set, the A5020 MR has been tuned to read specifically in the medium range of up to 1.5 meters.  It is the go-to antenna for applications like cabinets, shelving and conveyors where stray reads are a significant risk to productivity and accuracy. 

The A5020 Family – Building A Legacy 

Innovation is in the DNA of Times-7, and the A5020 product range reflects an unwavering pursuit of high performing, reliable antennas.  

In creating the A5020 range, the goal was to create a product and build on a legacy of reliability, performance, and innovation. When first proposed as a smaller companion to the A5010, we wanted to improve on two key factors: Extending environmental performance with a fully encapsulated plastic housing and transforming antenna aesthetics so the antenna would look smart in customer-facing environments such as retail. 

Since launching, the A5020 has received incredibly positive feedback, often referred to by customers as “the best RAIN antenna on the market.” Shipping volumes are high and accelerating due to the A5020’s continuing adoption as one of the key go-to standards for OEMs, resellers and systems integrators wanting reliable, durable and compact RAIN (UHF) RFID antennas.
