Antenova antennas suit ISM and cellular frequencies
October 26, 2017
Antenova is introducing two antennas for the ISM and cellular frequencies. They are designed to be used on the exterior of a product, and are built to an ergonomic blade design to blend well into the outside of the design.
The first antenna, the Draco SREL036, is a terminal antenna for 4G, 3G and 2G applications, covering the LTE, HSPA+, WCDMA, CDMA, GSM, GPRS, DCS1800 and PCS1900 bands. It is suitable for use in routers, industrial devices, remote devices and smart meter applications.
The second antenna, the Pacifica SREI038, is a terminal antenna for 433MHz ISM applications, and is for remote monitoring, industrial devices, remote technology, smart meters, medical devices and home automation.
They are both made to a dipole design and come in three physical variants – swivel, fly lead and a fixed 90? design. This means they can provide a wireless connection in numerous situations, whether indoors or outdoors.
The version of the antennas with the fly lead has an SMA plug and a cable of 1 to 2m, and is for situations where the antenna needs to be placed away from its device to transmit effectively; for example, this antenna could be used to provide a connection to a smart meter installed in a basement or metal enclosure where there is no radio signal.
The 90? fixed antenna and the version with the fly lead are dust-proof and water resistant, rated to IPC68, which means they can be used in a wide variety of situations, indoors and outdoors, and in all weathers.
Like all of Antenova’s antennas, Draco and Pacifica are designed for easy integration to a device – the UK company has designed them to work with various ground plane sizes or in free space.
