UK – 31st August 2017 - Antenova Ltd, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for
M2M and the Internet of Things, is to launch Robusta part no.
SR4G031, a new antenna for metal surfaces - at the GSMA MWC Americas show.
The antenna operates in the 1559-1609 MHz bands and is designed for tracking metal objects
and smart city applications.
Antenova takes antenna design a step forward with its REFLECTOR family, which answer to
the challenge of operating on a metal surface or housing, where it is extremely difficult
for an antenna to operate. The REFLECTOR antennas use a patented new technology where there
are two layers, one electrically isolated from the other, so as to provide RF shielding to
the second layer. This allows the antenna to radiate effectively in the direction pointing
away from the base material.
Robusta antenna has two key features that make it ideal for discreet tracking. It is extremely
low profile so it can be mounted onto a metal object such as a bicycle frame, maybe concealed
under a label. Being able to operate directly on a metal surface, it can be used on bicycles,
motor cycles, vehicles, containers or other property that needs to be tracked and located
The Robusta antenna is also a good choice for smart lighting and smart meters in Smart
City applications, where it can be fixed to metal fittings.
The antenna is manufactured from rigid FR4 material and measures 23mm x 16mm x 1.7mm high,
and comes with 100mm or 150mm cable and IPEX MHF connector and an adhesive pad for easy integration
into a device.
Like Antenova's other antennas, this antenna is designed for easy integration and the company
is working to help its customers integrate antennas into their designs faster and more easily
- there are a number of resources to help with this at the company's website. For more details,
