The Barracuda OMB.868.B12F21 is a fiberglass omnidirectional outdoor antenna, operating in the 868MHz ISM band and is designed to offer long-distance coverage. The antenna is designed for applications such as metering, industrial & environmental monitoring, remote asset monitoring and mesh network applications. The 868MHz band is one of the most widely used license-free ISM bands. Typical applications are in SigFox, LoRa and LPWA networks.
With a 12dBi peak gain, the OMB.868.B12F21 omnidirectional antenna radiates uniformly in the azimuth. This collinear design characteristic provides the best performance, giving optimized coverage and therefore longer range in the horizontal plane over 360 degrees, thus minimizing the number of nodes needed for a mesh 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 can be connected directly to the access point or telemetry unit or can be mounted on the wall or device surface via the N-type connector and a pole-mount and wall-mount bracket is included.
