New 868 MHz and 915 MHz 1/2 Wave Terminal omni antennas

EAD has introduced two new ISM-band omni antennas for 868 MHz and 915 MHz. The BKR868 and BKR915 are 1/2 wave, groundplane independent antennas designed for terminal mount via a multi-position SMA or  RP-SMA connector respectively.

BKR868 1/2 Wave Dipole Antenna

 With an overall length of approximately 220mm and a gain of 2 dBi, the BKR868 and BKR915
are handy solutions for ISM frequency band applications where there is no groundplane available for a 1/4 wave antenna or where a little more performance from the antenna is required.

Both antennas are shipping with immediate effect.
