Product Description

The RAKwireless 5dBi Fiberglass Antenna is a high-quality outdoor antenna designed for optimal performance in the 863-870MHz/902-928MHz frequency bands. This antenna is specifically tailored to enhance the range and coverage of outdoor installations, making it ideal for LoRaWAN® networks in urban outskirts or less densely populated areas. Its robust construction and IP67 rating ensure it is weatherproof and can withstand harsh outdoor conditions.

Product Features

  • Frequency Bands: Supports both 863-870MHz and 902-928MHz, covering a wide range of LoRaWAN® applications.
  • Gain: 5.0 dBi, providing an excellent balance of range and coverage.
  • VSWR: ≤1.63 for 863-870MHz and ≤1.47 for 902-928MHz, indicating low signal reflection and efficient transmission.
  • Beamwidth: 360 degrees, offering omnidirectional coverage.
  • Impedance: 50 Ohms, ensuring compatibility with standard communication equipment.
  • Polarization: Vertical, which is ideal for most communication scenarios.
  • Radome Body: Made from durable fiberglass.
  • Connector Type: N-Type Male, offering secure and reliable connections.
  • Antenna Dimensions: φ27.0mm x 480.0mm, compact and easy to install.
  • Operating Temperature: Functional between -40°C and +75°C, suitable for a wide range of environmental conditions.
  • Storage Temperatures: -40°C to +85°C, ensuring the antenna’s integrity during storage.

Product Inclusions

  • 1pc Antenna: The package includes one high-quality 5dBi Fiberglass Antenna.

Usage and Applications

This antenna is particularly effective when deployed in high-altitude spots within the outskirts of an urban area or in rural settings. Its mid-range dBi rating makes it ideal for covering areas that are near but not too close to the deployment site. It's a great fit for use with Helium hotspots, such as the RAK Hotspot V2 or MNTD Hotspot, where it can reach a significant number of witnesses in the vicinity. The antenna is also directly mountable on the enclosure of Gateway models like RAK7240, RAK7249, and RAK7289, and is compatible with various outdoor enclosures and accessories.

Additional Information

  • The antenna's coverage resembles a doughnut shape, providing better and more stable coverage for devices that are not in immediate proximity.
  • It is recommended to use a combination of antennas with varying dBi for achieving optimal overall coverage and minimizing blind spots.
  • Suitable for regions following the LoRa frequency specifications of EU868, IN865, RU864, US915, AU915, KR920, and AS923.

The RAKwireless 5dBi Fiberglass Antenna is an essential component for establishing robust and efficient outdoor LoRaWAN® networks, offering durability, versatility, and superior performance​.
