1 Antennas
Note that several aspects, including physical placement, should to be considered with
both external antennas and the integral on-board antenna. While antenna placement is
relatively flexible with the standard antennas recommended for OEM use, it is
recommended to consult with Wireless Solution prior to making the final antenna
placement decision to ensure optimal performance.
It is common for most indoor products to use any of our RP-SMA cables, and ship
standard with an indoor 2dBi antenna. For products that have the potential to be used
outdoors, and are IP-65 or similarly rated, an N-type antenna cable is recommended as
this provides a waterproof seal between the connector and the casing. For products
that are not exposed directly to the elements, an N to RP-SMA adaptor along with a
standard 2dBi RP-SMA antenna is recommended, as customers can change later to an
IP-65 rated antenna if they require this. For products with direct, continuous exposure
to the elements, the solution described above, but with a 2dBi IP-65 antenna instead
of the indoor antenna and adaptor is recommended.
Further information on the range of Antenna that Wireless Solution offer can be found
on page 7.

1.1 Antenna Options
Most models of the W-DMX OEM TRX card are available with a connector for an
external antenna or with an on-board antenna. Refer to the order list in the OEM
Guide for a complete list of Order Codes and descriptions.
The connector and antenna locations are outlined in Figure 1. The options are
designated as follow:
X2 is a MCX female antenna connector (for use with MCX antenna cables).
A1 is an integral on-board chip antenna (on-board antenna option, refer to order
codes).

1.2 Antenna, Antenna cable and connector
A wide range of antennas and standard, as well as custom, antenna cables with
connectors and adaptors are available from Wireless Solution for applications that
utilize external antennas.
The W-DMX OEM TRX card features a high frequency MCX connector, X2 in
Figure 1, to which the internal antenna cable is plugged in. One end of the internal
antenna cable is furnished with a MCX connector and the other end is furnished with
a RP-SMA or N chassis connector for attachment of the antenna, antenna with
adaptor, or external antenna cable.
The RP-SMA connector is only suitable for indoor use and is typically used in
relatively light duty applications. Temporary outdoor use is possible if the unit is
shielded from exposure to rain, water splashes, and other environmental factors.
The N connector is mandatory for permanent outdoor applications and also best suited
for heavy duty applications where mechanical damage of the connector during e.g.
transportation might be an issue. As an example, the W-DMX line of stand-alone
transmitters and receivers use the N connector for its durability and water resistance.
Note that, if the customer chooses to use an N-type cable, they will require an external
N to RP-SMA adaptor to utilize our standard indoor antennas.
Indoor antennas are rated up to IP43, and can be used outdoors in covered conditions,
provided provision has been made at the antenna connection to IP rate the fixture to
the appropriate rating.
You will find dimensional drawing for our standard cables later in this section.
Custom solutions are available on request from Wireless Solution if the standard
cables fail to satisfy the requirements for a particular application.
The W-DMX 2dBi 2.4GHz antenna has an operating range of 360 x 360 degrees. The
W-DMX Indoor and Outdoor Dualband antennas have gains of 2dBi and 4dBi at
2.4GHz and 5.8GHz respectively, and have an operating range of 360 x 360 degrees
in the 2.4GHz band, and 240 x 360 degrees in the 5.8GHz band.
Note that all units are metric.
