Leading antenna and scanning receiver solutions provider PCTEL, Inc. introduces the PCTEL Bluewave high-performance log periodic antenna with full coverage of the 136-174MHz VHF frequency band for use with wideband radio technology.
Bluewave log periodic antennas are ideal for deployment in public safety, smart grid, railroad, SCADA and other mission critical applications that demand reliable performance.
PCTEL’s LPA136174-6NF antenna has a rugged, no-tune design featuring a solid element construction with robust materials. Long-term reliability is ensured with premium coatings and finishes on the antenna.
The log periodic antenna provides 8.1 dBi gain and consistent radiation pattern performance across the specified frequency range. The wideband feature of the new design allows system planners and integrators to use a single directional antenna in the deployment of interoperable public safety networks.
Jeff Miller, PCTEL’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing explains that the new antenna showcases PCTEL’s commitment towards developing innovative antenna products that simplify wireless network design challenges for their customers.
He adds that PCTEL will continue to work closely with their public safety, industrial wireless and railroad customers to design solutions that meet their evolving requirements.
PCTEL displayed the new wideband antennas as well as other antenna and wireless connectivity solutions at this year’s ENTELEC Conference and Expo in Houston, TX as well as at the Railway Systems Suppliers 52nd Annual C&S Exhibition in Cincinnati, OH.
