The 4.4-5.0GHz Barracuda ISM Indoor/Outdoor antenna is designed to provide long distance coverage for Public Safety applications. Omni-directional 7dBi gain ensures constant reception and transmission. The UV resistant coating with fiberglass housing makes this antenna suitable to be mounted in robust outdoor environments. Many module manufacturers specify peak gain limits for any antennas that are to be connected to that module. Those peak gain limits are based on free-space conditions. In practice, the peak gain of an antenna tested in free-space can degrade by at least 1 or 2dBi when put inside a device. So ideally you should go for a slightly higher peak gain antenna than mentioned on the module specification to compensate for this effect, giving you better performance. Upon testing of any of our antennas with your device and a selection of appropriate layout, integration technique, or cable, Taoglas can make sure any of our antennas’ peak gain will be below the peak gain limits. Taoglas can then issue a specification and/or report for the selected antenna in your device that will clearly show it complying with the peak gain limits, so you can be assured you are meeting regulatory requirements for that module.
