Looking to upgrade the antenna for your Helium HNT Hotspot or IoT Gateway? Look no further, these fiberglass antennas will help to boost your LoRa signal and increase your network coverage. 

Compatible with Helium OG hotspots, Nebra, RAK V2, Bobcat 300, SenseCAP M1, SyncroB.it, and other IoT compatible gateways. 

Fiberglass Antenna Highlights:

  •     RAK second generation high performance omnidirectional monopole
  •     Can be used in the US, Canada or Australia (915 Frequency)
  •     Frequency Range: 860 – 930
  •     Size: 800mm ± 10mm

This Kit Comes With:

  •     1x Antenna
  •     1x 12” Pigtail interface converter (N-Type Female to RP-SMA Male)
  •     2x Mounting brackets

If you are looking to connect your antenna to a distance longer than 12 inches you will need to purchase the proper cable. The recommended cable for longer distances is LMR-200 with RP-SMA male to N-Type Female connectors.

Note:  Hotspot Miner are not included in the Outdoor Enclosure Kit.
The provided PoE Injector and Splitter are not Gigabit (1000Mbps) Ethernet capable. They are 10/100Mbps devices, working only with 10/100Mbps ports on routers and switches.
In case you want to use a 1000Mbps switch or router to provision your hotspot, you need to source a Gigabit Ethernet capable PoE injector and splitter.

Lightning Arrestor

This is a surge protective device for securing transceivers against over-voltage and surge current induced by bolts of lightning. 

For the purpose of protecting the indoor equipment and circuitry connected to the LoRa gateway, you need to install an Ethernet Port Surge Protection Device (SPD).

We recommend installing a lightning arrestor on all N-type antenna terminals including LoRa, LTE, and 2.4G Wi-Fi antennas. Please refer to the technical manual for wire type and gauge recommendations.
