iANT218 Directional Dual Band 3x3 MIMO Rugged Antenna

The iANT218 is part of Extronics’ iANT2xx range of simple apparatus antennas.

  • 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi antenna
  • Combined vertical and cross polarised elements
  • Assessed as simple apparatus
  • IP67 and rugged
  • Suitable for Groups II and III
  • -40°C to 70°C
Use in hazardous areas

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.

Indoor and outdoor use

The iANT218 can be used both indoors and outdoors. It’s made from durable UV-resistant ABS plastic with good thermal shock resistance. Rated to IP66 and with a temperature range of -40°C to +70°C, the iANT217 is suitable for most applications.

Gain and directionality

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.
