Waterproof Medium Gain Antenna
The Buccaneer Antenna from Bulgin Components is said to be a completely waterproof medium gain antenna developed for the 2.4 GHz to 2.5 GHz frequency band. According to the company, integrating the antenna with its waterproof connector can reduce the total number of connectors in the RF chain, reducing insertion losses, effectively increasing the total system gain. Designed to the same style as Bulgin's SMB Buccaneer, the sealed antenna has an integrated SMB connector with an overall diameter of just 19 mm and the mating panel connector has a panel fixing hole of 16 mm diameter. Rated at IP68, the PX0407 provides protection from harsh environments, and all electrical connections are gold plated to ensure system performance and reliability is maintained. The panel connector, PX0414, with an SMB jack, is terminated with RG-174 cable in 0.5m, 1.0m or 1.5m lengths for fast assembly to the panel, and it only requires termination into the equipment. Typical application areas are base stations and outdoor hotspot installations, specifically for wireless LAN, GSM, Bluetooth, Zigbee, instrumentation and telemetry equipment.
