Low Profile Heavy Duty WiFi Antenna for Fixed M2M
Itasca, IL, December 8, 2015 – Mobile Mark released the new HD4-2400, a heavy duty WiFi antenna designed for Fixed M2M applications. This omni-directional antenna operates in the frequency range of 2400-2485 MHz, with a peak gain of 4 dBi.
The HD4-2400 is a low profile antenna that is ideal for providing WiFi M2M capability in environments where the antenna is regularly subjected to physical wear and tear. Impact from a car tire passing overhead or damage caused by an animal in an agricultural setting are examples of durability tests that this antenna is designed to handle.
“The HD4-2400 provides a great solution for 2.4 GHz WiFi support contained in a very durable small-sized radome” said Tam Chau, Antenna Design Engineer at Mobile Mark. “It can be surface mounted in a variety of different fixed settings to support WiFi M2M networks, or other systems using the 2.4 GHz band, such as Bluetooth.”
Measuring only .52” (1.3 cm) high and 2.75” (6.98 cm) in diameter, the HD4-2400 is a compact antenna that can easily be mounted to almost any surface. There is a 5/8-24 x .50 threaded stud at the base of the antenna where it is mounted, and standard RF-195 cable with an SMA plug is routed through for connection. The product comes standard with 3 feet (91.4 cm) of RF-195 cable, but custom cable lengths can always be ordered. This heavy duty WiFi antenna is enclosed in an overmolded radome made out of black UV stable polyamide, which provides a durable housing that is also UV resistant.
The HD4-2400 is ground plane independent, meaning there is no ground plane requirement for proper operation. The heavy duty WiFi antenna has a 120° vertical beamwidth and a 360° horizontal beamwidth, giving this product effective capability for omni-directional WiFi coverage.
A welcome new addition to Mobile Mark’s extensive line of heavy duty WiFi antennas, the HD4-2400 is able to deliver fantastic results for 2.4 WiFi networks in a space-saving yet durable package.
