Innovative Antenna System Delivers Ultimate System Flexibility

St. Louis, Missouri, USA – February 2, 2009 – Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of customized, performance-critical components for wireless systems and other advanced electronics applications, today announced its new reduced-size HD RooTenna® enclosure.    

The new integrated unit is designed to accommodate smaller-sized equipment requirements for broadband wireless access (BWA) suppliers and carriers who deploy industrial WiFi / WLAN / WiMax / LTE systems, mesh networks, Wi-PoP base stations, and/or client antennas using Point-to-Point and WISP applications.

These RoHS-compliant wide-band antennas offer spectral flexibility and operate within 900-928 MHz and 2400-2700 MHz band coverage and include Laird Technologies’ patented RJ45-ECS field replaceable feed-through Ethernet connector, as well as UV-resistant radomes made of ASA plastic and stainless steel hardware.  Seven different options of antenna connectors are available to adapt to any user’s equipment.

The metallic die-cast enclosure is available as a stand-alone unit with an integrated low-gain antenna, a detachable high-gain panel antenna or an aluminum box with no antenna.  All models have a removable and customizable user-mounting plate inside for installing electronics, as well as a hinged cover for easy maintenance with an IP-67 water and dust seal rating.  The HD RooTenna is available in either pole-mount or wall-mount versions, with or without a heavy duty tilt bracket.  There are 11 engineered knockouts (nine for N connectors and two for sized cable) eliminate the need for drilling.
