This Terrablast antenna showcases a completely new class of lightweight and robust antenna for drones and automotive, spurred on by Taoglas’ advances in material science. This Terrablast WTSP.2400 2.4GHz Patch Antenna is a revolutionary new antenna developed to meet the needs of UAV and Automotive industries. The right-hand circular polarized design is useful for constantly moving mobile applications where the orientation to the transmitter or receiver changes, ensuring a drop of only approx. 3dB from maximum performance compared to potential drops of 60dB or more if using a linear polarized solution. This increases the reliability of the wireless connection substantially. This patent-pending antenna uses a new class of Taoglas polymer dielectric material which makes it more than 30% lighter than traditional ceramic antenna technologies.
Compared to using a traditional ceramic patch antenna of the same size, this Terrablast patch antenna weighs just 5.6g compared to an equivalent ceramic patch of 8.5g. The Terrablast material has ultra-impact resistant characteristics designed to withstand drops, falls and impacts making it ideal for applications such as UAV’s, where the antenna’s mechanical robustness following potential impacts is critical.
This antenna works well without modifications in most environments but can be tuned and further optimized to different ground-planes and enclosures if required. Custom antenna modifications, such as pin length modifications, are subject to possible NRE and minimum order quantity.
All Terrablast antennas undergo rigorous temperature, vibration and impact tests and exceed the highest ISO16750 standards for Road Vehicles—Environmental Conditions and Electrical testing for Electrical and Electronic equipment. Note the antenna is not suitable for SMD reflow processes. Recommendations for soldering
are in Section 7.
