Flexible 433MHz Whip Antenna
The FW.43 is a flexible 433MHz whip antenna with an SMA type (M) connector for outdoor use. It features excellent efficiency (>60%) and peak gain (>0 dBi) at 433MHz on a 30×30 cm ground plane. Common applications are wireless sensor monitoring, smart metering, remote asset monitoring, and security systems. The FW.43 has an excellent omnidirectional radiation pattern, ensuring wide coverage. The antenna’s high efficiency means that it allows your radio to consume less power than with a lower efficiency antenna when transferring data. It also means a better signal strength and better sensitivity in areas of low signal levels.
The antenna performs at its best while attached to a ground plane with dimensions of at least 30×30 cm The FW.43 whip is made of a flexible inner steel core covered by PE so it is extremely resistant to abrasion and maintains its original shape and RF performance even after shock. This rugged design and IP65 waterproof rating on the housing ensure high reliability. This antenna comes with SMA(M) connector as standard. Other custom variants can be provided subject to NRE and MOQ. Contact your regional Taoglas office for details.
