Mobile Antenna Gain – Part 1

When choosing a mobile antenna, is more gain better? Maybe, though practically, radiation efficiency and radiation pattern are probably more important. But this is about antenna gain. Let’s start with ISED regulations in SRSP-500 6.3 Radiated Power Limits 6.3.1 Mobile Systems Normally, the maximum power for base stations shall be 125 watts Effective Radiated Power (ERP) and 30 watts ERP for mobile stations. However, in all cases, the ERP shall be limited to that which […]

Low Profile Antennas on Electrical/SCADA Cabinets

Finding the best antenna and mounting arrangement for wireless / radio linked SCADA installation can take a bit of out of the box thinking, literally. While many installations required high gain directional antennas, often plant systems or small industrial complex systems either don’t need high gain antennas or physical limitations preclude them. For instance, a plant with primarily hardwired PLCs and sensor/control points may need to connect to a network of remote I/O, or environmental […]
