San Diego, California, July 7 2016 - Southwest Antennas is pleased to announce the release of a new small form factor panel antenna designed specifically for IEEE 802.11g/n Wi-Fi or other ISM applications in the 2.4 - 2.5 frequency band. The antenna is designed to handle up to 10 Watts of RF input power, has a maximum gain of 7.8 dBi, and is vertically polarized.
Measuring only half an inch thick, this antenna is ideal for use as a stand-alone solution for providing Wi-Fi / ISM band coverage within a building or other structure while remaining unobtrusive. The thin form factor also allows this product to be integrated into other products and enclosures, such as mobile Wi-Fi hotspots for construction sites, military bases, and rapid deployment ad-hoc networks. Three holes in the radome allow for secure mounting within an enclosure or directly to a wall or other structure.
Designed to meet the rugged standards all Southwest Antenna products are held to, this antenna features a robust Kydex radome available in either black or white, is MIL-STD 810 drop test compliant, and is environmentally sealed and suitable for outdoor use. Twelve inches of cable and a RP-SMA(m) RF connector come standard, other cable lengths and RF connectors are available upon request.
This product is available now from the Southwest Antennas website, authorized sales representatives, and distributors.
