Barracuda 868MHz 10dBi Omnidirectional Outdoor Antenna

The Barracuda OMB.868.A10F21 is a fiberglass omni-directional outdoor antenna, operating in the 868 MHz ISM band. The antenna has a 10dBi high peak gain, providing a large coverage area for Low Power Radio (Sigfox, LPWA, LoRa) and mesh networks.

The Barracuda has been designed with the new Helium network in mind, the Barracuda series are perfect antennas for use in conjunction with Helium Gateways and Devices used for cryptocurrency mining. Using the new OMB.868.A10F21 with high 10dBi gain allows for a stronger connection allowing miners to support a larger network area thus earning more cryptocurrency.

Typical applications are in IoT, metering, industrial/environmental monitoring and remote asset monitoring.

The OMB.868 operates at 868MHz, one of the most widely used license free ISM bands, with a 10dBi peak gain. The omni-directional antenna uses an advanced collinear dipole design, meaning it radiates uniformly in the azimuth with a high gain, providing coverage over long distances, thus minimizing the amount of cells or nodes needed in a network.

The UV resistant fiberglass housing enables the OMB antenna to be utilized in all kinds of harsh environments, making it more robust and safer than traditional whip antennas. It has been designed to withstand high wind load. The integrated aluminium mounting bracket is perfect for directly mounting the antenna onto a pole or a wall.

The connector is industry standard N-type female. The connector can be customized subject to MOQ. Other frequencies and gains are available such as 915MHz also for Helium mining, Wideband Cellular, 410MHz and more. For further information please contact your regional Taoglas customer support team.
