The Shockwave TLS.30.105111 is a mechanically robust, waterproof, external antenna operating at the 433MHz ISM band with 1 meter low loss CFD/TGC-200 cable and SMA(M) connector. It has been designed to be used on a Ground Plane.
Common applications are, for example:
- Mesh networks
- Indoor/outdoor asset monitoring
- Security systems
- Remote control systems
- Heavy-duty equipment/vehicle communication in harsh environments
The antenna has 56% efficiency and -0.54dBi peak gain at ISM 433MHz 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 while tightening up the nut beneath the metal panel. Waterproof O-rings around the bottom base prevent water from leaking under the antenna. The TLS.30 antenna is IP67 waterproof resistant against high-pressure water jets in commercial cleaning environments, which makes the antenna ideal for ISM 433MHz applications in harsh outdoor environments.
