RF Elements Array Sector 2-14 2Ghz 17 dBi Antenna




RF elements® Array Sector antennas are optimized for high performance in unlicensed frequency bands. They offer excellent RF performance, colocation capability, easy installation, and cost-efficiency. The side lobes of Array Sector antennas are suppressed using BackShield™, our patented, frequency selective surface attenuating azimuth side lobes and back lobe, integrated into the antenna body. The gain of Array Sector 2-17 is stable in both, horizontal and vertical polarizations, offering reliable performance regardless of which channel you use. The antenna is light and made of high-quality non-corrosive materials for long-lasting performance.

  • Stable Gain Across The Band 
    • The gain of Array Sector antennas remains very stable across the whole useful frequency band.
    • VSWR values are excellent across the whole useful spectrum for maximum power delivered from a radio to the antenna.
  • Best in Class Performance 
    • Gain stability across spectrum
      • RF elements® Array Sector Antenna has optimized gain performance in the whole useful bandwidth.
      • Thanks to stable gain, the antenna delivers excellent performance in 2 GHz unlicensed band.
    • BackShieldTM for cluster deployments
      • Array Sector Antenna has integrated BackShieldTM - our patented frequency-selective surfaces suppressing azimuthal side lobes and back radiation, improving its co-location capability.
    • Light & Compact
      • Array Sector Antenna is made of high grade aluminium that makes it compact, light, and extremely durable.
  • Optimized For Co-Location 
    • BackShieldTM is our patented frequency selective surface suppressing back radiation and sidelobes in azimuthal plane by mitigating parasitic surface waves.
    • BackshieldTM improves co-location capability of Array Sector Antenna in dense cluster deployments.
  • BackShieldTM 
    • To suppress back radiation and side lobes in azimuth plane, we integrated our patented BackShieldTM directly into antenna body.
    • BackShieldTM is a frequency-selective surface on which the antenna PCB is attached, so you do not need to spend more money for aftermarket accessory shields.
  • Wide Platform Compatibility 
    • Array Sector Antenna bracket is compatible with radios of major brands in the WISP industry that have coaxial connectors at the output (check datasheet for a complete list).
    • Detachable radio cover protests the SMA connectors from weather influences, a standard introduced by RF elements®.
  • Hardware with Anti-Seize Coating 
    • The black-colored surface treatment based on polymer tribological dry coating with sub-microscopic lubricant particles protects the bracket hardware from seizing extending the life-time of the whole bracket.
