Taoglas FW.86.B.SMA.M (Meteor) ISM Band 868 MHz Flexible Whip Antenna with SMA (M)

The FW.86.B.SMA.M is a flexible 868 MHz whip antenna with an SMA type (M) connector for outdoor use. It features excellent efficiency (>70%) and high peak gain (>2.82 dBi) at 868 MHz on a 30x30 cm ground plane. The antenna was developed for low power radio networks (LORA / LPWAN), monitoring systems, and smart metering. The FW.86.B.SMA.M has an excellent omnidirectional radiation pattern, ensuring wide coverage. The high efficiency means that it allows your radio to consume less power than with a lower efficiency antenna when transferring data. It also means a better signal strength and better sensitivity in areas of low signal levels.

The antenna performs at its best while attached to a ground plane with dimensions of at least 30×30 cm. For an environment where there is no ground-plane available we recommend using the TI.18 or OMB.868.05.

The antenna's whip is made of a flexible inner steel core covered by PE so it is extremely resistant to abrasion and maintains its original shape and RF performance even after shock. This rugged design and IP65 rating on the housing ensure high reliability.
