Courtesy of Taoglas : High Performing 5dBi 2.4GHz Rubber Duck Dipole Antenna
The GW.22 is a dipole antenna designed to provide up to 5dB of gain to 2.4GHz applications such as Bluetooth, BLE, Thread, Wi-Fi, WLAN and ZigBee.
The IP67 rated enclosure makes it suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. The flexible IK07 rated TPEE enclosure is impact resistant and durable and has the added benefit of UV resistance, allowing it to meet the needs of demanding outdoor applications. It has an omnidirectional radiation pattern and excellent efficiency of up to 70%.
The GW.22 has up to 5dBi Peak making it a cost-effective, high-performing choice for any indoor or outdoor application operating at 2.4GHz. Many module manufacturers specify peak gain limits for any antennas that are to be connected to that module. Those peak gain limits are based on free-space conditions. In practice, the peak gain of an antenna tested in free-space can degrade by at least 1 or 2dBi when installed. So ideally you should go for a slightly higher peak gain antenna than mentioned on the module specification to compensate for this effect, giving you better performance.
Upon testing of any of our antennas with your device and a selection of appropriate layout, integration technique, or cable, Taoglas can make sure any of our antennas’ peak gain will be below the peak gain limits. Taoglas can then issue a specification and/or report for the selected antenna in your device that will clearly show it complying with the peak gain limits, so you can be assured you are meeting regulatory requirements for that module. Choosing a Taoglas antenna with a higher peak gain than what is specified by the module manufacturer and enlisting our help will ensure you are getting the best performance possible without exceeding the peak gain limits.
