LTE & GPS Antenna part of a Smart Grid system sized just right for Utility Cabinets & NEMA boxes
Itasca, IL – January 15th, 2016 – Mobile Mark’s new blade-style antenna for Smart Grids combines two Cellular LTE elements and one GPS element in a slim, compact radome. The antenna is designed to be mounted on Utility Cabinets or NEMA boxes.
The LTB301 Antenna’s slim footprint measures only 1 ½ inches deep by 7 ½ inches long, and less than 4 inches tall (19 cm x 3.8 cm x 10 cm). It is attached through a single mounting hole that accommodates all three cable connections. A special gasket preserves the IP67 water ingress rating when properly mounted.
The antennas radomes are aesthetically pleasing and rugged enough to meet tough conditions. The grey ASA material is UV resistant and was selected to blend well with most cabinets.
The blade style antennas for utility cabinets and NEMA boxes are ground-plane independent and designed to perform on either a fiberglass or metal box.
Using our new slim line package, the LTB301 is a Multiband 4G/LTE 2x MIMO antenna with dual LTE (649-960 MHz and 1710-2700 MHz) in addition to GPS at 1575 MHz. This particular model comes with SMA plugs and two 18 inch RF-195 Cables, as well as one 18 inch RG-174 cable for GPS. The LTB can also be configured without GPS.
Mobile Mark antennas are tested and designed to ensure that they are able to withstand accidental or even intentional damage. “This Smart Grid antenna was designed for Utility Cabinets and NEMA boxes, it can be mounted in any setting where a slim profile is desired,” said Jerry Posluszny, Mobile Mark’s Director of Engineering. “It offers outstanding electrical performance as well as a unique mechanical package, it is an excellent addition to the Mobile Mark line of antennas.”
The new LTB301 will be on display at DistribuTECH Conference & Exhibition, February 9th – 11th, 2016, booth #961.
