Overview

The DCE series die cast aluminum enclosures from Laird are an innovative antenna system which gives the operator ultimate system flexibility. The die-cast enclosure is available as a stand-alone enclosure, with an integrated low-gain antenna, or with a detachable high-gain panel antenna. Antennas are wide band for spectral flexibility. Radomes are UV resistant ASA plastic. Hardware is stainless steel.

 

The antenna systems come with a pigtail cable with choice of connectors to adapt to any available radio equipment. There is a removable and customizable user mounting plate inside for mounting electronics.

 

The antenna models come standard with Laird patented RJ45-ECS field replaceable ethernet connector feedthru. The die-cast enclosure can be pole or wall mounted. A heavy duty tilt bracket is available for those installations requiring up or downtilt. Eleven (11) engineered knockouts are provided; 9 sized for N connectors and 2 sized for a cable feedthru.
