RFI SMD8-90 806 to 960 MHz Side Mounted Dipole Antenna

Product Code



Design Type

Application Category

Base Station

RF Category

The SMD8-90 side mount dipole is an extremely broad bandwidth antenna recommended for local area coverage or short haul RF link applications. The antenna is internally DC grounded for lightning protection and the reduction of precipitation static noise.

SMD8-90 can be operated as a unity gain base station antenna with high power handling, extremely durable for hostile industrial environments. The antenna has high radiation efficiency and excellent VSWR. Forward gain can be increased with mounting to provide semi-directional radiation.

Specifications below are provided with quarter wave mounting.

  • All welded construction for maximum and reliable performance
  • Covers 868 and 915 MHz ISM bands
  • Covers cellular bands 806 to 960 MHz
  • Narrow beamwidth & high front to back ratios
  • Alodine finish providing an excellent conductive surface for earthing
  • Short Durathene cable tail with N Female connector
