Amphenol RF Introduces a New Range of External Antennas
Amphenol RF has added a new range of external antennas to their product portfolio as a direct complement to existing RF interfaces providing a complete solution from application to antenna. External antennas connect to familiar interfaces such as SMA, RP-SMA and N-Type and are available in single, dual, and wide-band configurations. These antennas are widely used in Bluetooth, wireless protocols, WLAN/WWAN, and IoT applications.
External antennas have a number of design options: straight and swivel whip-style, and panel and external mount cabled designs. They are constructed from common RF interface materials with plastic antenna casings and mechanical hinges and swivels. These antennas are often mounted on the outside of a device by means of an RF connector interface. They are made for indoor and outdoor use with robust designs available for harsher environments.
“Adding antennas to our portfolio of RF products is a natural progression of our business. We always say, ‘follow the signal,’ and now we’re able to offer engineers the ability to use Amphenol RF products from start to finish in their applications,” said Ron Orban, senior product manager responsible for the antenna expansion.
This type of antenna is available as either the monopole or dipole design and is typically used for higher power transmission and reception. They are well-suited for wireless routers and set-top boxes, industrial IoT devices, handheld remote control units and surveillance cameras. Waterproof IP67-rated options are also available along with custom solutions upon request.
