These are our first ever MIMO Wi-Fi omni-directional marine antennas that will provide stable Wi-Fi connectivity while out at sea.
Ensuring that passengers and crew members can connect simultaneously, from various locations of the water vessel, without experiencing significant slowdowns or disconnections is of utmost importance, especially in modern maritime environments.
The OMNI-494 features cross-polarized antennas, with high gain vertical and low gain horizontal omnidirectional antennas. The high-gain antennas have a peak gain of 9.8dBi, while the low-gain antennas have a peak gain of 5dBi, providing MIMO performance with improved throughput.
The OMNI-498 features high-gain vertical omni-directional antennas with a peak gain of 9.8dBi also providing MIMO performance with improved throughput.
The two MIMO Wi-Fi antennas are shown in the table below:
Both antennas are purpose-built for harsh maritime environments against dust and water ingress, making them ideal for the most severe storms at sea. The antenna radome is fully saltwater protected and thus can be used in highly corrosive environments, thanks to the UV-stable ASA radome material.
Both antennas offer a standard 1”-14TPI marine adaptor (BRKT-40 in the box). It also includes a 316-grade stainless steel L-bracket as standard, for pole mount applications.
The OMNI-494 and OMNI-498 antennas are intended to supplement and expand the range of marine Wi-Fi antennas, offering more options to our customers especially when using a MIMO-capable access point. With their MIMO technology, the antennas ensure enhanced performance, improved reliability, and seamless connectivity for vessels of all sizes, and other maritime applications. Stay connected wherever your journey takes you with our new MIMO Wi-Fi antennas.
