Antennas for Low-Power, Low-Bandwidth Wireless Networks
Many times and in different scenarios, industrial networks focus on long-range applications. Large facilities with high data requirements force designers into that mode of thinking even when this kind of approach may not be needed. However, there are plenty of reasons to incorporate shorter range or smaller data solutions for specific purposes such as when sending small bits of data at regular intervals. We are of course referring to Bluetooth and ZigBee systems that offer low-power ways to provide niche communication options for network segments or sections. When you consider the possibilities with Parsec, Antaira and SENA antennas, you’ll realize there is a whole dimension of networking design that is overlooked in these massive networks.
Lower Power, Long Range with Low Range Antennas
As we have moved away from a disconnected communications system and toward a world of constant connectivity, the Internet of Things (IoT) has become second nature to us. Large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) networks often rely on Wi-Fi, LoRA, or SIGFOX systems to maintain data streams such as network traffic, sensor data and so on. They are great for the small amount of power they require, but you’ll need the right intermediaries to keep communication from facing disruption. Antaira’s DAT5-R low range antenna was designed for this exact purpose. It can handle standard communication protocols from many devices. It’s built tough enough for outdoor work and robust enough for vital systems. Additionally, it can be installed upright or with a 90 degree bend making it more customizable.
Bluetooth and ZigBee are often ignored for their shorter ranges, but they are the low-powered choice for many automated functions. For example, Zigbee has made its mark on smart home applications such as smart lighting, thermostats, and intelligent home energy monitoring or any other scenarios and technologies that require short-range, low-rate wireless data transfer. The SENA Networks PARANI-DAT5 can quarterback both technologies through a single 5 dBi antenna. Designed for standard applications, the DAT5 is easy to install and works in a plug-and-play fashion. Above all, this flexible and rugged low range antenna is incredibly affordable — enabling you to deploy Bluetooth and ZigBee in as many locations as you might need. Low-power, low-data networks also enable flexible and reliable communications when we are working with peer-to-peer technologies or mesh networks.
