New 2.4 GHz Compact Wall-Mount Omni antenna introduced

EAD is pleased to introduce a new 2.4 GHz Compact Wall-Mount omni antenna based on the popular WCO antenna platform.

WCO-2400-WMB antenna

The WCO-2400-WMB is a durable and compact 2.4 GHz omni antenna designed for WLAN, WiFI, Zigbee and Bluetooth applications. Supplied with a wall-mount bracket, it is ideal for outdoor wall-mounting applications thanks to its UV-resistant and flame retardent sheath. The antenna is terminated in a N-Female connector and can be fed by jumper cables terminating in a N-Plug. The gain of the antenna is 2.5 dBi when mounted on the wall-bracket and the VSWR is better than 2:1 at centre frequency.

More information on this antenna, can be found here.

New connector options increase versatility of WCO antenna

EAD is pleased to announce a number of new connector options for the WCO (Waterproof Compact Omni Antenna).

In addition, to the original connectors in the range which were N-Male, N-Female BLK (through-hole), TNC-Male Straight, SMA-Male Straight and SMA-Male Right Angle as can be see in the image below:

EAD has added TNC-Male Right Angle, RP-TNC Right Angle, SMA-Male Straight and SMA-Male Right Angle.

We can also offer a WCO antenna on a bracket option for wall-mount applications. See the following image:

433MHz Wall-Mount Compact Omni Antenna introduced by EAD

EAD is pleased to announce the introduction of a 433 MHz Wall-Mount version of the WCO (waterproof compact omni) antenna.

Mounted on a right-angled bracket, the WCO-433-WM is a fully waterproof and robust ISM-band antenna for wall-mounting both outdoors and indoors. Terminated in a N-Female connector, the WCO-433-WM allows for RF cables to be customised to the application.

Other UHF frequencies in the 380-512 MHz band are possible including TETRA and 459 MHz.

The WCO-433-WMB will be commercially launched towards the end of Q2 2012. In the meantime, if you have a specific application please contact us.

GLONASS Stubby antenna released by EAD

EAD is pleased to announce that a GLONASS version of the GPS-Stubby antenna has been released. Currently only available as an evaluation unit, the GLONASS-Stubby is a unique external GLONASS antenna for direct terminal mounting via either a SMA-Male straight or SMA-Male right-angle connector.

For more information on the GLONASS-Stubby, please contact EAD.

EAD introduces active GPS Stubby antenna

EAD is pleased to introduce an innovative new antenna for GPS applications. The GPS-Stubby is an active GPS stub antenna designed for mobile terminals requiring an external GPS antenna. Especially in applications where a traditional patch antenna with a cable is unsuitable or where the cable will get in the way, the GPS-Stubby provides a cost-effective and compact alternative.

With effective gain of approx 26 dB thanks to an integrated LNA, the GPS-Stubby operates in compact dimensions of 67mm in height and 18.5mm in diameter. It is housed in a robust sheath and can be supplied with a SMA-Male straight or SMA-Male right angle connector.

For more information, please visit the product page here and download the specification sheet. Alternatively please contact us with your questions. We can be e-mailed at sales@ead-ltd.com.

EAD enhances Compact Omni and adds new connector options

EAD has enhanced our new WCO (waterproof compact omni) antenna by improving the RF performance and adding more connector options.

The new Antenna Element is fully groundplane independent so the antenna can be mounted either on metal or non-metal surfaces without impacting performance.

A SMA-Male straight connector is now available for the WCO.

A SMA-Male right angle connector is now available for the WCO.

The WCO provides a compact omni-directional antenna solution to outdoor pentaband (cellular/GSM/3G) applications where a robust, waterproof and UL-rated antenna is required for metering, security, CCTV and telemetry terminals, gateways and routers.

For more information please contact EAD or one of our distributors.

EAD introduces PTR7210 LTE & Pentaband terminal antenna

EAD has today launched a Pentaband Cellular/GSM/3G and LTE (700 MHz) terminal dipole antenna ideally suited to multiband gateways, router, modems and terminals. The PTR7210 is part of the EAD’s expanding PTR range of products (next to follow is the PTR2450 for 2.4/5 GHz frequency bands) and is terminated in a SMA-Male connector. It is housed in a robust sheath and the SMA is a multiposition connector offering flexibility of installation.

The PTR7210 is available to order with immediate effect.

New Waterproof Compact Omni antenna for outdoor applications

EAD is pleased to introduce the WCO (Waterproof Compact Omni), Initially availble as a pentaband cellular, GSM, 3G (824-960/1710-2170 MHz) antenna, the WCO is terminated in a N-Female connector designed for through hole mount onto a metal enclosure making it ideal for outdoor telemetry and metering. The sheath of the antenna is made out of flame retardent, UV-resistant ABS to withstand the elements.

The WCO range will soon be broadened as N-Male and TNC-Male connectors will be available. In addition, frequency support for 2.4 GHz.

Here is a link to the WCO product page.

New 169 MHz Helical antenna for metering

EAD is pleased to introduce a new VHF helical antenna operating at 169 MHz and primarily designed for the harmonised frequency band for metering in Europe.

The H169-SMA is a 1/4 wave moulded helical antenna housed in a durable sheath and terminated with a SMA-Male connector. The H169-SMA measures approximately 140mm in overall length (including the connector) and has a maximum diameter of 13.5mm.

Whilst SMA is the standard connector, the H169 antenna could be terminated in other connectors including BNC, TNC and RP-SMA.
The H169-SMA datasheet will shortly be available on our website at www.ead-ltd.com.
