Sticky and compact an­ten­nas for net­work mon­i­tor­ing

OffComm News - - PRODUCT NEWS -

Pulse Elec­tron­ics Cor­po­ra­tion has in­tro­duced an in­ter­nal dual- band flex­i­ble printed cir­cuit ( FPC) an­tenna to pro­vide con­nec­tiv­ity and data trans­mis­sion for In­ter­net of Things ap­pli­ca­tions in net­work mon­i­tor­ing. Serv­ing the wire­less and wire­line com­mu­ni­ca­tions, power man­age­ment, mil­i­tary/ aero­space, and au­to­mo­tive in­dus­tries, Pulse Elec­tron­ics’ dual- band an­ten­nas cover lower band WiFi fre­quen­cies 2.4- 2.5 GHz and up­per band fre­quen­cies 4.9- 5.9 GHz. The ‘ Plume Se­ries W3315B0100 WiFi’ is a compact an­tenna with a max­i­mum gain of 2dBi on the low band, and 5dBi on the up­per band, and more than 60% ef­fi­ciency across the bands. The flex­i­ble na­ture of the an­tenna’s con­struc­tion, low pro­file, and small form fac­tor make it eas­ily adapt­able to most in­dus­trial de­sign pa­ram­e­ters. A stan­dard IPEX/ U. FL­com­pli­ant coax con­nec­tor pigtail eas­ily con­nects to wire­less ra­dios and mod­ules for WiFi 802.11 as well as Zigbee, and Blue­tooth low en­ergy fre­quency bands, with an ad­he­sive back­ing for easy in­stal­la­tion. An­other sticky so­lu­tion en­tered the mar­ket­place re­cently, this time from Ane­tova. The man­u­fac­turer of an­ten­nas and RF an­tenna mod­ules for M2M and the IoT has re­vealed a new- style an­tenna, the Mon­tana. It’s de­signed to op­er­ate in the ISM bands of 863- 870MHz and 902928MHz and suits: re­mote sen­sors, mon­i­tor­ing equip­ment, smart me­ter­ing, med­i­cal devices, light­ing, se­cu­rity, and au­to­mo­tive ap­pli­ca­tions. Th­ese flex­i­ble FPC an­ten­nas are just .15mm thick and come sup­plied with a peel- back self- ad­he­sive area to fix them in­side small elec­tronic devices. Com­plete with a ca­ble and a con­nec­tor, each an­tenna weighs less than 0.5g.

The Plume Se­ries W3315B0100 dual- band flex­i­ble printed cir­cuit an­tenna is RoHS com­pli­ant and sup­ports IEEE stan­dards in­clud­ing 802.11n and 802.11ac.
