Times-7 A1163 True NearField Antenna (FCC/ETSI)

The Times-7 A1163 True NearField Antenna 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 A1163 antenna offers reliable tag reads within a very constricted read zone. Integrated mounting holes on the rear side are provided, which can be drilled through for using mounting screws. Additionally, the A1163 is provided with an optional self-adhesive rubber feet kit to stop the antenna from slipping.
