The Shockwave TLS.90.205111 is a mechanically robust, waterproof, external antenna operating at 868MHz and 915MHz with 2 meter of low loss TGC-200 and SMA(M) connector. It has been designed to be used on a Ground Plane.
Typical applications include:
- Public safety
- Smart meters
- Mesh networks
The antenna has greater than 60% efficiency and 1.58dBi peak gain at 868MHz 64% efficiency and 1.9dBi peak gain at ISM 915MHz on a 30×30 cm ground plane. Stable radiation patterns over low angles provide a consistent gain in the horizontal plane, meaning that it is especially suitable for mesh networks or hot spots.
A unique indent tab on the base of the antenna allows a wrench to be used to solidly lock the antenna on top of its mounting location while tightening up the nut beneath the metal panel. Waterproof O-rings around the bottom base prevent water from leaking under the antenna. The TLS.90 antenna is IP67 waterproof and IP69K resistant against high-pressure water jets in commercial cleaning environments, which makes the antenna ideal for 868 & 915MHz applications in harsh outdoor environments.
