The IP54 rating and the 10.5 dBiC gain specification make this antenna highly suitable for industrial applications. A densely packed asset with numerous tags can be identified accurately with almost no effort. A standalone portal can be realized with four Times-7 A5060 antennas, with one antenna overhead and the other three on the sides, mounted offset to one another. All possible tag orientations will be captured due to the A5060`s circular polarization and A5060 antenna`s locations. The antennas on the sides are offset such that the antennas do not face each other and induce maximum coverage within the portal. Almost all assets can be tracked with greater accuracy using our Times-7 A5060 antenna.
There are two recommended options for mounting the antennas, as shown in the picture:
Fig. 1: The vertical configuration is recommended for high-density asset tracking (such as palletized boxes, trolleys of laundry goods, etc.) where you will need a greater RF zone to efficiently read all the tagged items. The RF beam is intentionally spilled in and out of the portal.
Fig. 2: The horizontal configuration is recommended to avoid stray reads due to the RF spill. The read zone/area is restricted within the width of the portal. Assets that are not densely packed can be read efficiently using this configuration.
