The iANT216 is part of Extronics’ iANT2xx range of simple apparatus antennas. It is a rugged omni directional antenna with dual band functionality.
The iANT216 antennas have been assessed by Extronics engineers as meeting the international intrinsic safety standards for simple apparatus. This means they are safe to use in hazardous areas when connected to a suitable certified wireless device with an intrinsically safe RF output, such as the iWAP107 or other solutions using the iSOLATE501.
The iANT216 antennas cannot be used in the hazardous area when connected to an RF source that is not intrinsically safe.
The iANT216M antenna can be easily mounted directly onto a female N-Type chassis connector. The iANT216F has a female N type connector and comes with a stainless steel L-bracket for remote mounting.
The iANT216 antennas are optimised for use in WLAN installations in the 2.4GHz/5.8GHz spectrum for IEEE802.11 b/g/n/ac wireless networks or 2.4GHz/5.8GHz wireless mesh Ethernet networks. The dual band functionality ensures users can install the latest hardware which utilises both the 2.4 and 5.8GHz frequencies at the same time, or change their wireless device operating frequency without the need to replace antennas.
The iANT216 antennas can be used both indoors and outdoors. They are made from durable UV-resistant glass fibre with good thermal shock resistance. Rated to IP67 and with a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, the iANT216 antennas are suitable for most applications.
