Terminal Screw Mount Antenna for FirstNet with up to 77% Efficiency

The Shockwave Response FNS.01.30WW111 is a terminal mount antenna with up to 77% efficiency for FirstNet Applications. It is a permanent mount, waterproof, external antenna operating at the FirstNet, band 14 range. It has an?N type male connector and has been designed to be used on a Ground Plane. It can be used in mobile and fixed applications for FirstNet such as:

  • Public safety
  • Utilities and Smart Cities
  • Fleet Management

FirstNet is a dedicated communications tool for First Responders in the US. It is an isolated network to provide faster critical information and data-sharing between First Responders and their agencies. New FirstNet devices are being deployed to allow for the multitude of services and applications which will be using the network for the following mission-critical applications:

  • Computer-aided dispatch (vehicle location)
  • EMS Electronic Patient Care Reporting
  • Vehicle Mounted RMS/ Citations/ Scanners
  • Video Streaming

This antenna has superior performance over wide-bands compared to traditional whip antennas. Up to 77% efficiency and with a minimum 2.2dBi peak gain over all cellular bands result when mounted on a 30×30 cm ground plane. Stable radiation patterns over low angles provide consistent gain in the horizontal plane, meaning that it is especially suitable for cellular applications.

A unique indent tab on the base of the antenna allows a wrench to be used to solidly lock the antenna on top of its mounting location while tightening up the nut beneath the metal panel. Waterproof O-rings around the bottom base prevent water from leaking under the antenna.

The FNS.01.30WW111 antenna is IP67 waterproof and IP69K resistant against high-pressure water jets in commercial cleaning environments, which makes the antenna ideal for FirstNet applications either in indoor or in harsh outdoor environments.
