The WCO-169 is a 169 MHz through-hole mount antenna suitable for indoor or long term outdoor mounting via a N-Female bulkhead connector
The WCO-169 is a 169 MHz through-hole mount antenna suitable for indoor or long term outdoor mounting via a N-Female bulkhead connector onto a metal enclosure. With its UV-resistant and flame retardant sheath, the WCO-169 is a compact and discreet solution for licence-free metering applications.
When mounted via a 16mm diameter hole, the o-ring in the base of the connector forms a watertight seal against the enclosure and the locking nut and washer from underneath ensure that the antenna can be easily removed. This tamper-resistant deployment is particularly attractive in domestic environments where the terminal is openly accessible.
This antenna will typically need tuning the customer’s device or terminal and requires that a groundplane for the antenna is available to ensure correct functionality.
The WCO-169 169 MHz through-hole mount antenna is also available on a L-bracket for wall mounting. Visit the WCO-169-WMB page for more details.
