Antenova Ltd, a manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things located in Hatfield, UK, has launched Robusta part no. SR4G031, a new antenna for metal surfaces. The antenna operates in the 1559-1609 MHz bands and is designed for tracking metal objects and smart city applications. 

Antenova’s REFLECTOR family is designed to answer the challenge of operating on a metal surface or housing, where it can be extremely difficult for an antenna to operate. The REFLECTOR antennas use a patented new technology where there are two layers, one electrically isolated from the other to provide RF shielding to the second layer. This allows the antenna to radiate effectively in the direction pointing away from the base material, according to the company.

The Robusta antenna has two key features that make it ideal for discreet tracking. It is extremely low profile so it can be mounted onto a metal object such as a bicycle frame, possibly concealed under a label. Being able to operate directly on a metal surface, it can be used on bicycles, motor cycles, vehicles, containers or other property that needs to be tracked and located accurately.

The Robusta antenna is also a good choice for smart lighting and smart meters in Smart City applications, where it can be fixed to metal fittings.

The antenna is manufactured from rigid FR4 material and measures 23 x 16 x 1.7 millimeters high, and comes with 100 millimeters or 150 millimeters cable and IPEX MHF connector and an adhesive pad for easy integration into a device.

Like Antenova’s other antennas, this antenna is designed for easy integration and the company is working to help its customers integrate antennas into their designs faster and more easily.
