The Taoglas ISA.05 adhesive mounted antenna is designed primarily for 915 MHz ISM Band compact wireless applications where it may or may not be attached to metal. When placed on a reference 300 mm square ground-plane, the antenna has an excellent directional hemispherical radiation pattern, high peak gain of 5 dBi at zenith, and an efficiency of 68%. Even without a ground-plane underneath, the antenna achieves 0 dBi and an efficiency of 45%.
The antenna is IP65 water-resistant and comes standard with a microcoaxial cable with 1.37 mm diameter and IPEX MHFHT connector. The Taoglas ISA.05 is an excellent solution for the following applications:
- Environments where there are lots of metal objects that it may be mounted to (such as near a car engine)
- RFID Readers
- Short range 915 MHz mesh networks
- ISM based IoT protocols such as LoRa and Sigfox.
Cable type, length, and connector can be customised. Mechanical customisation of the antenna can also be done for a minimum order quantity.
The model states a VSWR <6.0:1 for the entire 902 to 928 MHz band, however achieves <2.0:1 at 915 MHz. All specifications are taken using a 300 x 300 mm metal ground plane. Please consult product datasheet for free space performance.
