Taoglas, provider of IoT and M2M antenna solutions, has launched the Engager Logarithmic Periodic Dipole Antenna (LPDA) series in booth No. 4849 at CTIA Super Mobility 2016.

The wide-band directional antenna series offers high gain at multiple frequencies, including all cellular 2G/3G and 4G LTE bands globally for all carriers and networks, the company says in a news release.

In areas of low signal strength, the higher gain can help a device get connectivity when a standard Omni directional antenna would not.

“These wonderful looking Engager’s eliminate the need for Yagi’s,” Dermot O’Shea, Taoglas joint CEO, says. “The Yagi’s are also directional and high gain but are limited to a narrow bandwidth or single frequency. That means if you installed an antenna for a base station belonging to a certain carrier at a certain time, that frequency or base station equipment can be changed over time, meaning you have to go back on site and change the antenna. That scenario can happen over and over again but with the Engager series it’s a one time installation and future proofs the site’s connectivity for many years.”

The Engager series launches at CTIA Super Mobility 2016, which is being held Sept. 6-9 in Las Vegas, Nevada, with four variants, and more planned:

  • LPDA.01; 698-3900MHz, 334*278*34¬†millimeter, 7dBi gain.
  • LPDA.03; 600-3000MHz, 629*517*43 millimeter, 8dBi gain.
  • LPDA.05; 698-6000MHz, 629*517*43 millimeter, 8dBi gain.
  • LPDA.06; 400-6000MHz, 942*488*43 millimeter, 9dBi gain.

All are available in wall or pole mount options. The wall mount option consists of a two-part bracket, allowing it to be tilted and rotated and pointed in the required direction of the base station. The pole-mount bracket is delivered with u-bolts and clamps and, when secured on the pole, also allows a 30-degree tilt above or below horizontal.

“Taoglas engineering continue to not only innovate but exhibit the never give up attitude. To achieve such wide bandwidths, while maintaining high performance, makes us all very proud of the Engager series,” O’Shea says.
