Small antenna – great success

Times-7 celebrated the antenna’s launch success and invited local suppliers and other key stakeholders to the official opening of the new production line. The guests learned about the history of this fast-growing company, gained exciting insights of the design goals and processes of the A5020 and were guided through the purpose-built A5020 manufacturing facility.


A5020 – exceeding expectations

The new high-tech production line for the A5020 was officially opened by the Member of Parliament for Hutt South, Chris Bishop. He performed the “first tag read” of the new antenna to demonstrate its capabilities. When Chris held up his tag, it was read from around ten meters – a stunning result for a 150mm2 footprint antenna.
