Wireless connectivity has become essential in various industries, but building a long-lasting, reliable wireless network that provides good coverage requires reliable products that adhere to specific requirements. Depending on the actual installation position and operation mode, requirements include specific antenna parameters and mechanical properties such as water tightness, salt water and spray resistance, shock and vibration resistance.
These considerations apply not only to the wireless infrastructure, but also to machines connected to the network. Since machines are able to connect to different networks, antenna requirements increase, specifically for bandwidth and bands, which may include frequencies for Wi-Fi, cellular (2G, 3G, 4G, 5G), GNSS (GPS), Tetra, LPWA (low-power wide-area networks), and others.
Antenna cabling normally has a focus on easy installation, flexibility, low losses and fulfilling environmental requirements, including water tightness, oil and radiation resistance.
Lightning protectors are also available from the HUBER+SUHNER portfolio, allowing for additional protection of the active equipment. This way, the whole analog path from the access point’s antenna port to the antenna to be covered with HUBER+SUHNER products.
HUBER+SUHNER is offering a wide range of unobstrusive and easy to install wideband antennas for distributed antenna systems.
HUBER+SUHNER develops and produces robust, small form factor antennas for various industrial applications.
HUBER+SUHNER is offering various antennas for trains and buses that transmit signals perfectly within the vehicle and along the track.
HUBER+SUHNER QMA and QN connectors have a quick-lock coupling mechanism. QMA and QN are easy to mate and allow a high packaging density because no tools are needed.
Gas discharge tube (GDT) protectors
HUBER+SUHNER gas discharge tube (GDT) technology based protectors are generally designed as coaxial feed-through devices for 50 or 75 ohm systems. GDT technology based protectors feature DC/AC continuity for remote powering and large bandwidth.
Quarter-wave shorting stub protectors
HUBER+SUHNER protectors based on quarter-wave technology feature excellent protection performance with very good RF specification. For specific applications protectors with internal DC-block are available.
