Expanding its Clarity family of DAS, ultra-thin, ceiling-mount, omni-directional antennas, Pulse Electronics has introduced the Clarity White Antenna. The white antenna offers a lower cost, yet high performance antenna that fits the aesthetic requirements of many buildings and public places. It can be installed with Pulse's solid-ceiling adapter which makes antenna installation amazingly simple, even in hard-pan ceilings without easy access.
The Clarity White family covers 608-2700MHz cellular bands. Like all antennas in Pulse Electronics' PIMinator line of DAS antennas, the PIM performance is exceptional, with a rating better than -155dBc at 2x20W (2x43dBm). These antennas meet global wireless carrier requirements, including AT&T and Verizon Wireless.
The ultra-thin antenna extends just 8.4mm (0.33") below the ceiling. The antenna is 239mm (9.41") in diameter, so it's hardly noticeable. Blending in with the ceiling, the antenna is suited for providing wireless network access in hotels, convention centres, formal spaces, older buildings with low ceilings and shallow spaces.
Pulse's new installation adapter, DASCLINSERT, eliminates the problem of trying to install an antenna in ceilings where there is limited access above the antenna for installation. This is not a problem in drop-ceilings, but in areas with extensive industrial design and where visual appeal is important, there's usually not enough room. The DASCLINSERT adapter implements a blind-hole installation and can be installed in a ceiling with a simple 1/8th turn-and-lock rotation. The installation adapter does not induce PIM and doesn't affect the low profile installation of the Clarity family.
Olivier Robin, General Manager, Wireless Infrastructure business unit, Pulse Electronics, commented: "Folks really love our Clarity translucent antennas, the way they look, their excellent performance, and how cleverly they can be installed with the installation adapter. The white antenna continues the beauty of the Clarity transparent family and offers an additional choice at a reasonable price."
The Clarity White family consists of six variants plus a reflector: DASUTWC500NF and DASUTWCR500NF with N female connector; the DASUTWC500MD and DASUTWCR500MD with 4.1-9.5 mini-DIN connector; and the DASUTWC5004310 and DASUTWCR5004310 with 4.3-10 connector, either with or without an energy director.
