The Taoglas FW.45 is a flexible whip antenna for outdoor use. It features excellent efficiency (>70%) and peak gain (>1 dBi) at 450 to 470 MHz on a 30×30 cm ground plane. Common applications are smart metering, gateways, wireless monitoring, and mesh networks. The FW.45 has an excellent omnidirectional radiation pattern, ensuring wide coverage. The antenna's 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 FW.45 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. This antenna comes with an SMA (M) connector.
