The Shockwave TLS.30.1F11 is a mechanically robust, waterproof, external antenna operating at the 433MHz band with an N type female 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 51% efficiency and -1.1 dBi peak gain at ISM 433MHz on a 30×30 cm ground plane. Stable radiation patterns over low angles provides 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.30 antenna is IP67 waterproof and IP69K resistant against high-pressure water jets in commercial cleaning environments, which makes the antenna ideal for ISM 433MHz applications in harsh outdoor environments.
