The FW.24 is a flexible 2.4GHz omni-directional whip antenna with an N type (M) connector for outdoor use. It features excellent efficiency (>75%) and high peak gain (>4 dBi) between 2400-2500MHz on a 30x30 cm ground plane. The antenna was specifically developed for applications in outdoor monitoring systems, such as weather monitoring, motion/vibration sensors, and pollutants monitoring. The FW.24 works in the 2.4GHz WiFi/Bluetooth/ISM band. It has excellent omni-directional radiation properties providing a wide coverage area in the azimuth. Its high efficiency means that it allows your radio to consume less power than with a lower efficiency antenna when transferring data, while also achieving better sensitivity of reception. The antenna performs at its best while attached to a ground plane with dimensions of at least 30x30 cm, though it can be used even without ground-plane. The whip is made of a flexible inner steel core covered by PE so it is extremely resistant to abrasion and springs back to its original shape if bent. The rugged design and its housing’s IP67 rating ensure it can withstand bad weather, environmental stress and physical shock in the field.
