NEW! This Directional Patch antenna has a 6 dBi gain and operates at 433 MHz 50 ohms. It has been designed for optimal RF receiving performance with the L-RX Series Wavetrend readers for optimal range. The AN320 patch antenna is typically used for its unique directional properties. Its reception field is of a hemispheric nature with a larger than 12 dB front to back ratio.
The AN320 can be mounted on a flat surface (mounting plate is included) at a remote location from the reader (preferably less than 10 meters) with minimal cable losses providing that high quality cable is used.
The antenna can also be mounted inside a dry wall construction, behind wood panelling, glass or other non-RF shielding materials. The antenna can be painted with non-metallic paint.
The antenna is housed in a plastic mould that is UV resistant and can be used outdoors.
Applications of this antenna are best suited to applications where a directional RF reception field is required, i.e. Access control
systems, Vehicle yard management, Parking control systems, Container monitoring, etc.
Dimensions: 7 IN x 9 IN x 2.00 IN Deep
