The antennas also feature an IK10 impact resistance rating to protect it against severe vibration and impacts. Making the antennas ideal for industrial IoT/M2M and mining applications.

It complies with CE, EN, CSA, RoHS and IEC Standards and is rated for temperatures of -40°C to +80°C and will survive winds of up to 190 km/h. The antenna can be mounted on a wall, pole or side of a cabinet using the included 304 Stainless steel mounting bracket. It can also be surface mounted using the supplied adhesive disk. This makes the antenna ideal to use in the following applications:

  • Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Poor data signal reception (indoor or outdoor)
  • High-end industrial grade router applications
  • Improves reception for mobile IoT equipment

If you are looking for a rugged, but aesthetically pleasing antenna that will improve slow access point data transmission connection and increase system transmission reliability, the new Poynting Rhyno OMNI-700 antenna series is the solution for you.
