The OMB.868.B08F21 is a fibreglass omnidirectional outdoor antenna, operating in 868 MHz ISM band. The antenna has an 8 dBi high peak gain, providing the largest coverage area for Low Power Radio (UNB Sigfox, LoRa) and mesh networks. Typical applications are in IoT, metering, industrial/environmental monitoring and remote asset monitoring.

The OMB.868 operates at 868 MHz, one of the most widely used license free ISM bands, with a 8 dBi peak gain. The omnidirectional antenna collinear dipole design means it radiates uniformly in the azimuth with a high gain, providing coverage over long distances, thus minimising the amount of cells or nodes needed in a network.

The UV resistant fibreglass housing enables the OMB antenna to be weathered in all kinds of harsh environments, making it more robust and safer than traditional whip antennas. It has been designed to withstand high wind load. The integrated aluminium mounting bracket is perfect for directly mounting the antenna onto a pole or a wall. The connector is industry standard N Female. Other frequencies, connector arrangements, and gains are available.

  • Finely tuned for 868 MHz ISM
  • Fibreglass design for harsh outdoor environments
