OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-SRT/9626 Super Wideband Omni Gooseneck Antenna
Designed for use on Ground Robots, Unmanned Vehicles, Manpacks, Broadcast Cameras and Vehicles, the
wideband nature of these
antennas allows users to future proof their systems and give increased flexibility
when using software defined radios. These antennas can be used to replace several narrow-band antennas
reducing a system's 'antenna real estate' which is especially important on manned and un-manned vehicles.
Since one antenna can fulfill all needs across multiple bands, Radio suppliers and users can also benefit
by reducing inventory.
The OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-ST/9625 and OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-SRT/9626 are the latest additions range of spring and
gooseneck mount antenna range. These ultra-wideband antennas cover the frequency range 2.00 – 6.00 GHz
and offer almost 5dBi gain in the higher frequencies.
The Gooseneck itself has been specified to be stiff enough to remain where it has been bent even
under vibration, which is essential when being used on systems where shock and vibration may be present.
OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-ST/9625 and OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-SRT/9626 each
cover the frequency range 2.00 – 6.00 GHz and offer gain increasing with frequency from 1 dBi to
almost 5 dBi gain in the highest frequencies. The options have either a spinning TNC (9625) or
spinning RPTNC (9626) connector.
Like their counter-parts in the 'Universal' spring mount range, the OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-ST/9625 and OA2-2.1-5.9-GN-SRT/9626 are
been designed to withstand harsh environments. A rugged glass fibre radome and IP68 rated to 20 m
under water, means they are able to withstand heavy impacts as well as extreme weather conditions.
These ultra-wideband antennas will also be available in a range of options including spring mount
and direct connector mount so please contact us to discuss options.
