The FW.86 is a flexible 868MHz whip antenna with an RP-N type (M) connector for
outdoor use. It features excellent efficiency (>95%) and high peak gain (>4.5
dBi) at 868MHz on a 30x30 cm ground plane.
The antenna was specifically developed for monitoring systems, such as weather
monitoring, motion/vibration sensors, and pollutants monitoring.
The FW.86 has an excellent omni-directional 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 strength of signal, 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 TI.18 or OMB.868.
