The FW.86 is a flexible 868MHz whip antenna with a SMA type (M) connector for
outdoor use. It features excellent efficiency (>70%) and high peak gain (>2.82
dBi) at 868MHz on a 30*30cm ground plane.
The antenna was developed for low power radio networks (LORA / LPWAN),
monitoring systems, and smart metering.
The FW.86 has an excellent omnidirectional radiation pattern, ensuring wide
coverage. The antennas high efficiency means that it allows your radio to
consume less power than with a lower efficiency antenna when transferring data.
It also means a better signal strength and better sensitivity in areas of low signal
levels. The antenna performs at its best while attached to a ground plane with
dimensions of at least 30x30 cm. For an environment where there is no
ground-plane available we recommend to use the terminal antenna the TI.18 or
the outdoors fiberglass omni antenna the OMB.868.
