The Shockwave TLS.20.1F11 is a mechanically robust, waterproof, external antenna operating at 450-470MHz with 1 meter of low loss CFD/TGC-200 and SMA(M) connector. It has been designed to be used on a Ground Plane.
Common applications are, for instance:
- Public safety
- Smart meters
- Mesh networks
The antenna has greater than 41% efficiency and -1.38 dBi peak gain within the application band 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 mesh networks or hot spots. 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, where an N type female connector juts out from a metal panel. Waterproof O-rings around the bottom base prevent water from leaking under the antenna. The TLS.20 antenna is IP67 waterproof resistant against high-pressure water jets in commercial cleaning environments, which makes the antenna ideal for 450-470MHz applications in harsh outdoor environments.
