Wireless/cellular connectivity

Efficient and service securing power transmission is a very important topic in today’s energy market. To achieve this, many controlling and measuring devices connected to a TCP/IP based network are required. Since these devices are often placed in locations where direct data cabling is not possible or expensive, a wireless connection is often the better choice.

Connection in this content can for example be a link to one of the widely available cellular networks (2G, 3G, 4G or 5G), to a proprietary Wi-Fi network, or to a LPWA (low-power wide-area) network.

Building such a connection with the requirement of high reliability, long life time and a minimum of required maintenance, increases requirements of the used antennas and passive components. Besides the electrical parameters (e.g. frequency bands), also other properties, as for example shock and vibration, or salt water resistance, must be considered.

Antenna cabling normally has a focus on easy installation, flexibility, low losses and fulfilling environmental requirements. The latter can include water tightness, oil-/ and radiation resistance. For protecting the active equipment, also lightning protectors are required in the transmission path.

HUBER+SUHNER provides a complete product portfolio of antennas, RF-coaxial cables, coaxial connectors and assemblies, and lightning protectors. The portfolio includes many industry specific products fulfilling the needs in the energy market.
