Laird Technologies Releases New ODH24-9-WB Horizontally Polarized Omnidirectional Antenna
Rugged Antenna Designed for Long Service in Extreme Environments
St. Louis, Missouri, USA – August 12, 2010 – Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the release of its new ODH24-9-WB horizontally polarized omnidirectional antenna.
The antenna operates in the 2400 to 2500 MHz band with a 9 dBi gain and horizontal polarization (HPOL). HPOL increases the range of the antenna over flat surfaces and minimizes vertically polarized (VPOL) signals produced by electrical and wireless devices by cancelling those VPOL signals out. The ODH24-9-WB is especially useful in build-up areas that have concentrated interference due to less radiated energy being absorbed by buildings or wirework.
“The ODH24-9-WB horizontally polarized antenna offers the user great rejection of interference if that interference is vertically polarized, as is the case in most WLAN systems,” said Quaid Rasheed, Laird Technologies BWA Antenna Product Manager. “The antenna is also weatherproof, and very rugged for use in extreme environments.”
The antenna system is constructed of a rugged aluminum and an ASA enclosure which provides great protection against the outdoor elements. An integrated 50 ohm passive feed comes standard with type N female connectors along with a rugged mounting bracket for vertical, upright orientation.
The ODH24-9-WB antenna is designed for 2.4 GHz ISM band applications, 802.11 wireless systems, point-to-multi-point systems, wireless broadband systems, and WLAN access points. For more information, please logon to www.lairdtech.com.
