The Shockwave TL.10 NMO series is a new generation of antenna, one part number that is a highly efficient, high gain omni-directional permanent mount antenna designed for all common Cellular, Wi-Fi and ISM bands worldwide. It is specially designed for easy and cost effective vandal-proof and waterproof mounting requirements on meters, terminal boxes, and heavy equipment and vehicles. In installation the antenna connects to a NMO Mount connector jutting out from a metal panel. A unique indent tab on the base itself on the antenna allows a wrench to be used to solidly lock the antenna on top of its mounting location, thus preventing removal by hand later by vandals, but crucially allowing for replacement antenna to be installed by qualified personnel in the future without the need to open the device or box it is mounted on itself. A waterproof O-ring around the bottom outer edge prevents water leaking under the antenna.
