The iANT218 is part of Extronics’ iANT2xx range of simple apparatus antennas.
The iANT218 has been assessed by Extronics engineers as meeting the international intrinsic safety standards for simple apparatus. This means it’s 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 iANT218 antenna cannot be used in the hazardous area when connected to an RF source that is not intrinsically safe.
NOTE: The iANT218 contains aluminium, and so is not suitable for use in Group I, Zone 0, or Ga environments.
The iANT218 can be used both indoors and outdoors. It’s made from durable UV-resistant ploycarbonate with good thermal shock resistance. Rated to IP67 and with a temperature range of -40°C to +70°C, the iANT218 is suitable for most applications.
The iANT218 offers a gain of up to 5dBi. The directional pattern is ideally suited for use in enterprise class wireless networking applications that require both 2.4 and 5GHz coverage in a single package.
