Automotive Antenna for LoRa and Sigfox
The 5dBi ISPC.86A an automotive antenna for LoRa and Sigfox. It is designed primarily for compact fixed wireless applications in Europe for the 865MHz to 870MHz frequency range where extra coverage range is required. The antenna functions best when the backside is placed on a metal panel. When placed on a reference 30cm square ground-plane, the antenna has an excellent directional hemispherical radiation pattern up to 5dBi on the zenith and an efficiency of 65%. Even without a ground-plane underneath the antenna achieves 1dBi and efficiency of 40~50%, with an omnidirectional pattern. This ceramic patch antenna with RG178 and MMCX male right angle connector is a great solution for the following typical applications:
- RFID Readers
- Short range 868MHz mesh networks
- Automotive ISM Applications
Cable type, length, and connector can be customized. Mechanical customization can also be done for a minimum order quantity.
