The Waterproof Compact Omni Antenna UHF range from EAD is based on a modular platform of components. This modular approach allows us to build a full range of antennas at various frequencies and connectors.

The main standard components are an injection-moulded UV-resistant Luran sheath, a connector barrel and an antenna element.

UHF frequencies that we can address with the WCO UHF include:

380 MHz
430 MHz
433 MHz
450 MHz
459 MHz
868 MHz

Please contact us if you need a different frequency between 300 and 900 MHz and we’ll do our best to assist you.


The common connector options are:

N-Male Plug
N-Female Panel-Mount w/O-Ring – for through-hole mount
TNC-Male Plug Straight
TNC-Female Panel-Mount w/O-Ring for through-hole mount
TNC-Male Plug Right Angle
SMA and RP-SMA options are also available.


 


The WCO antennas are usually terminal or metal enclosure mount. However there are two other mounting options:

WCO with Magnetic Mount


Compact Omni Antenna UHF


WCO with L-Bracket for wall-mounting



The Waterproof Compact Omni Antenna UHF products offer excellent build quality, durability and RF performance and can be tailored to your application. At UHF frequencies, they do require a ground plane to radiate effectively.

Applications for these antennas include:

Outdoor Telemetry
Wireless Security
TETRA communications
LTE access (using LTE 450 services where available)

For more information, availability and quotations. Please contact us or your local representative.
