The WCO (Waterproof Compact Omni) platform from EAD is a range of antenna products designed for permanent outdoor deployment. With a UV-resistant and Flame-Retardant ABS sheath, the WCO antennas are suitable for terminal-mounting, permanent- or bracket-mount deployments. The WCO series offers these connector types: N-Female bulkhead, SMA-Male, N-Male, and TNC-Male. 


Cellular/GSM/3G

Supporting Pentaband Cellular, GSM and 3G frequencies, this is a robust antenna solution for M2M (Machine to Machine) applications requiring wireless connectivity to multiple cellular-based frequencies. Antennas are terminated in N-Male, SMA-Male Straight or Right Angle,  TNC-Male for terminal mount or N-Female Bulkhead for permanent, panel mount applications including Telemetry, Telematics  Military etc. EAD also  has 4G LTE700 MHz/Pentaband version in development. 


2.4GHz

This range is specially designed for outdoor applications where customers are looking for durable and weatherproof antennas. Covering 2.4GHz frequency range for wireless technologies such as WLAN, Bluetooth , ZigBee, WCO antennas can be a good solution for wide range of devices including routers, gateways, access devices etc. Connector and cable configurations are available on request. 


ISM

The antenna design can be customized to different frequencies in the 169-433-868 MHz ISM Band range. Since New 169 MHz ISM-band has generated an interest for metering applications in Europe, we are seeing an increase in demand for these antennas. Durable construction of these antennas makes them ideal for outdoor deployments for a variety of ISM-band applications including security and telemetry.
