Industrial Wi-Fi antennas

11 October 2017 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Poynting announced the release of a new industrial Wi-Fi and WiMax antenna range. These dual frequency antenna products were specifically designed for use in systems that require higher reliability in Wi-Fi transmission during crucial situations, for instance industrial factory automation, warehouses, school and university campuses or any other cluttered RF environments. They can be used with the latest dual band Wi-Fi modems, as well as legacy Wi-Fi equipment.

The range consist of three products that all cover the 2,4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi frequency bands. The first two products (product codes WLAN-60 and WLAN-61) are directional antennas, with gains of 13 to 18 dBi and 9 to 11 dBi respectively. Both of these directional antennas are housed in enclosures with space to integrate customer electronics if required. The WLAN-61 is a directional 4x4 MiMo antenna with four SMA connectors.

The 4x4 MiMo product provides four differently polarised antennas in one enclosure, meaning it can be used in a 2x2, 3x3 and 4x4 antenna configuration. This antenna is designed for installations where 4x4 (four independent streams), multiplexing time-space technologies are required. This antenna is ideal to use with the latest technology dual band 802.11ac MiMo W-Fi modems.

An omnidirectional SiSo antenna (product code OMNI-296) completes the range, with an impressive gain of between 6 and 7,5 dBi over the frequency range.

Additional to the Wi-Fi bands, the WLAN-60 and OMNI-296 antennas also cover the 3,5 GHz WiMAX band.
