RF Low Loss Cables

With the widest porfolio of antennas available across the UK and European markets, we are best placed to be able supply your project with the exact antenna that fits the technical specification. Coupled with custom RF coaxial cable terminations in-house, we can provide a comprehensive service based around quality, customisation and innovation.

Notwithstanding the above, we have our own range of EAD antennas that augment our offering so there are fewer voids in our portfolio than other suppliers.

We only show highlights of our outstanding antenna portfolio on our website. You can visit the manufacturers’ websites for full antenna catalogues or call us for further direction.

To discuss your specific antenna requirement, please feel free to contact us.

Compact wall-mount antennas

Compact wall-mount antennas can address many applications

Compact wall-mount antennas based on EAD’s popular WCO product range offer flexible and discreet waterproof, outdoor antenna solutions for access to VHF, UHF, cellular and WiFi networks. Built on a common platform with a robust UV-resistant, weatherproof sheath, the WCO-XXX-WMB antennas offer effective RF performance coupled with a reliable long-lasting mechanical design.

This antenna is terminated in a N-Female connector and is mounted onto a stainless steel L-bracket. The WCO-XXX-WMB compact wall-mount antennas can be bundled with BWL195, RF240 and RF400 low loss cables to offer a customised solution for your application.

Variants of the WCO WMB antennas include:

WCO-169-WMB – 169 MHz wall-mount omni antenna for 169 MHz unlicensed frequency band applications

WCO-433-WMB – 433 MHz wall-mount omni antenna designed for 433 MHz ISM unlicensed bands

WCO-450-WMB – 450-470 MHz wall-mount omni antenna ideal for LTE 450 or 459 MHz applications

WCO-868-WMB- 868 MHz wall-mount omni for 868 MHz ISM bands

WCO-915-WMB – 902-928 MHz wall-mount omni antenna for 915 MHz ISM bands.

WCO-2400-WMB – 2.4 GHz wall-mount omni antenna for WiFi applications

Other VHF, UHF or frequency specific versions can be designed on request subject to minimum order quantities.

The WCO-433-WMB can be purchased online via the Connex webshop.

Compact Omni Antenna UHF

Waterproof Compact Omni Antenna UHF options

The Waterproof Compact Omni Antenna UHF range from EAD is based on a modular platform of components. This modular approach allows us to build a full range of antennas at various frequencies and connectors.

The main standard components are an injection-moulded UV-resistant Luran sheath, a connector barrel and an antenna element.

UHF frequencies that we can address with the WCO UHF include:

380 MHz
430 MHz
433 MHz
450 MHz
459 MHz
868 MHz

Please contact us if you need a different frequency between 300 and 900 MHz and we’ll do our best to assist you.

The common connector options are:

N-Male Plug
N-Female Panel-Mount w/O-Ring – for through-hole mount
TNC-Male Plug Straight
TNC-Female Panel-Mount w/O-Ring for through-hole mount
TNC-Male Plug Right Angle
SMA and RP-SMA options are also available.

 

The WCO antennas are usually terminal or metal enclosure mount. However there are two other mounting options:

WCO with Magnetic Mount

Compact Omni Antenna UHF

WCO with L-Bracket for wall-mounting

The Waterproof Compact Omni Antenna UHF products offer excellent build quality, durability and RF performance and can be tailored to your application. At UHF frequencies, they do require a ground plane to radiate effectively.

Applications for these antennas include:

Outdoor Telemetry
Wireless Security
TETRA communications
LTE access (using LTE 450 services where available)

For more information, availability and quotations. Please contact us or your local representative.

The WCO-433-WMB can be purchased via the Connex Website.

Magnetic Low Profile UHF Antenna

New Magnetic Low Profile UHF Antenna arrives at EAD

A new magnetic low profile UHF antenna, the LP-MAG-450, has been introduced by EAD. Based on our WCO (waterproof compact omni) platform, this antenna offers a robust, durable solution for fixed and mobile applications.

Supplied with a solid magnetic mount and a UV-Resistant Luran sheath, this antenna is low profile which helps to reduce impacts and knocks associated with long UHF whip antennas. The connector at the end of the cable of this magnetic low profile UHF antenna can be customised to allow connectivity to a wide range of radios. Connector types on offer include SMA, N, BNC, TNC, RP-SMA and FME.

The modular nature of this product means we can offer a similar solution at 169 MHz, 433 MHz, 868 MHz and 915 MHz. Other frequencies in the VHF and UHF band are also possible.

For more information, please visit the product page or contact EAD or a local EAD distributor.
