L-com has launched a new series of 900 MHz Omni antennas designed to address wireless LAN, SCADA, and 900 MHz cellular band applications.
L-com’s UP-series antennas are lightweight, low-profile, high-performance, Omni-directional antennas designed for point to point and point to multi-point networks.
These antennas feature an integral N-female-type connector and a slim, 20mm diameter, UV-stable, fiberglass radome for added durability.
Additionally, these antennas are designed with a sealed, aluminum end cap and drain holes at the base to help prevent condensation build-up inside the antenna, which helps ensure reliable performance.
Designed for applications where standard patch cables would fail, these exclusive ultra-flexible cable assemblies are rated to 10 million flex-cycles at 1.82" (46.4mm) for continuous motion and automation applications.
The major benefit of using an antenna array over a single Omni directional antenna is that the antenna array provides radiation patterns that a single Omni antenna would not. In most cases, antenna arrays provide greater coverage than a single Omni antenna could.
