ID SERIES OUTDOOR INDUSTRIAL DIPOLE ANTENNA
Designed for outdoor, rough efficiency means more radiated
environments, the ID Series antenna power and longer-range operation. An
is constructed to survive in extreme integrated mounting bracket simplifies
temperature ranges and under harsh UV installation, shortening time and
conditions. It is tested and certified for lowering costs. The ID Series antenna is
IP67 exposure using UL (f1) compatible a cost-effective solution for challenging
materials. This robust antenna is an applications with increased reliability
integrated solution, combining both and fewer points of failure. Available

FEATURES

The ID Series, ½-wave center-fed Industrial Dipole antenna is a weatherized design with industrial and outdoor applications in mind,
such as outdoor meters, solar panel controls and other sensor monitoring and control systems requiring a low cost - but rugged -
solution. The plastic and cable are rated for a wide temperature range and UV exposure for long term reliability.

Two standard cable lengths of 1m and 2m allow the antenna to be remote mounted in a position to achieve the best RF performance.
An integrated flange makes mounting the antenna simple.

ID Series antennas attach via a standard SMA or Part 15 compliant RP-SMA connector. Custom colors, cable lengths and connectors are
available for volume OEM customers.
