Short for ultra-wideband, UWB antennas are a type of radio technology known for their very low energy level - particularly when it comes to short-range, high-bandwidth applications. As the name implies, they're intended to transmit information across a broad bandwidth - that is greater than 500 MHz. This frequency range ensures that large volumes of information get to their intended location, all without causing interference with a narrowband transmission using the same spectrum.
All told, UWB antennas are used for a wide range of different purposes, including but not limited to:
One high-quality option in this category is the Taoglas PCUWB01 Ultra-Wideband Antenna. It is designed for European
and United States ultra-wideband applications in channels 1 to 15. In addition to being omnidirectional, it offers a variable frequency range of between 3 and 5 GHz and 6 and 10 GHz. It can be easily mounted on plastic and offers an IP67 rating. It's often used for applications that require a high degree of accuracy, with precision surveying being chief among them.
Another option worth considering is the Taoglas FCUWB01.01 Ultra Wideband Flex Adhesive Antenna. It's a durable and flexible option that is again suitable for applications in the United States and Europe. It is designed for channels 5 to 7 for use at between 6 and 8 GHz. One of the significant benefits of this particular model is the low power requirements of ultra-wideband technology. That leads to significantly increased battery life for the associated sensors and tags, which also translates to lower operating costs.
