Glass-mount antenna revamp spurs renewed demand
14 November 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Webb Industries has reported a growing demand for its upgraded Glass-Mount mobile antennas. This is according to Webb chief engineer, Terry Reuss, who says that sales have been excellent since the latest version was brought to market.

The Glass-Mount antenna was first produced by Webb more than 15 years ago, when it was very popular for cellphone car kits as it could be attached to the windscreen, obviating the need to drill holes in the vehicle. “By extending the offering to the public mobile radio (PMR) market there is newfound demand for the Glass-Mount antenna, which is proving particularly popular in the mining environment where it is being fitted to a wide range of mining vehicles,” Reuss says.

From a technical perspective the Glass-Mounts are VHF, half-wave, end-fed antennas with the radio signal transmitted through the glass to the antenna. Bandwidth is 10 MHz, rated power is 30 W and the radiation pattern is omnidirectional. The roughly 350 mm long whip is easily adjustable to the vertical position and is removable when required.

Reuss says that because of the resurgent demand for the Glass-Mount, Webb is now looking at extending the range to include other frequencies as well.
