Highest Efficiency, Dipole, UWB, Terminal 4G LTE Antenna
The hinged Apex II TG.35 Wideband Dipole Antenna has been designed to cover all Cellular, ISM and Wi-Fi working frequencies in the 600-6000MHz spectrum. Evolved from the already highly successful Apex TG.30, this second generation has the highest wide-band efficiency in its range of any terminal antenna on the market today. The Apex II has been primarily designed for use with 4G LTE modules and devices that require the highest possible efficiency and peak gain to deliver best in class throughput on all major cellular (2G/3G/4G) bands worldwide for access points, terminals and routers. This also includes CAT-M1 and NB-IoT and the recently introduced 600MHz Extended LTE Band 71. High efficiency is vital for applications such as high-speed video and real-time streaming, or high capacity MIMO networks on public transportation.
This attractive slim-line antenna is ground plane independent, meaning it does not need to be connected to the ground-plane of a device to radiate efficiently, on the other hand neither is it seriously detuned by connecting to a ground-plane, thus avoiding a problem notorious to smaller antennas. It comes with an SMA(M) connector and swivel mechanism that allows the antenna part to be rotated to fit in tight environments. The 90° hinge structure has been improved and strengthened so that the antenna in a 90° position would not fall down to 180° in vibration environment.
The Apex II is backward compatible with 3G and 2G cellular applications such as HSPA, GSM, GPRS, UMTS, Wi-Fi and even has GPS included for Assisted GPS and/or E911 applications. In summary the Apex II is the ideal solution for any device requiring high, reliable performance. It will meet most type approval or carrier certification requirements from an efficiency standpoint. The antenna also makes an excellent reference antenna for test purposes. It has been designed as an omni-directional antenna and the radiation patterns prove this, being stable across all bands.
