W868-FLY – 868 MHz captive mount whip antenna

The W868-FLY is a 868 MHz captive mount whip antenna based on a 1/4 wave groundplane dependent design for ISM band terminals

The W868-FLY is a 868 MHz captive mount whip antenna based on a 1/4 wave whip design requiring a groundplane operate optimally. Ideal for fixed and mobile 868 MHz ISM band terminals, the W868-FLY antenna is mounted via a threaded stud and held in place but a locking nut. This captive-mount mechanism ensures that the antenna cannot be easily detached from the terminal thereby discouraging wilful or accidental removal of the antenna from the application.

The W868-FLY is housed in a flexible injection-moulded sheath and typically is supplied with approximately 215mm RG174 cable and is not terminated with a connector. Connectors can be terminated if required, but ensuring that the connector is not larger in diameter than the mounting stud. Therefore connectors such as IPEX, U.FL, MMCX and MCX make good choices for this antenna.

For a SMA-Male based 1/4 wave 868 MHz whip antenna, you could consider the MW868 antenna.

A 915 MHz version is available subject to a minimum order quantity.
