The FW.43 is a flexible 433MHz whip antenna with a SMA type (M) connector for
outdoor use. It features excellent efficiency (>60%) and peak gain (>0 dBi) at
433MHz on a 30x30 cm ground plane.
Common applications are wireless sensor monitoring, smart metering, remote
asset monitoring, and security systems.
The FW.43 has an excellent omnidirectional radiation pattern, ensuring wide
coverage. The antenna’s 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
The FW.43 whip is made of a flexible inner steel core covered by PE so it is
extremely resistant to abrasion and maintains its original shape and RF
performance even after shock. This rugged design and IP67 waterproof rating on
the housing ensure high reliability.
This antenna comes with SMA(M) connector as standard. Other custom variants
can be provided subject to NRE and MOQ. Contact your regional Taoglas office for
