New HUBER+SUHNER antenna harnesses 5G and Wi-Fi 6E for industrial applications
As Industry 4.0 evolves and data flows continue to grow rapidly, industrial applications can harness the power of 5G and Wi-Fi 6E like never before with the new HUBER+SUHNER SENCITY® OMNI-M antenna.
Addressing the move towards interconnectivity, automation, machine learning and real-time data to create smart factories, this new omni-directional antenna enables fast and reliable data transmission via 5G and Wi-Fi 6E networks to support automated production and operations.
“Industrial applications are dealing with an ever-increasing amount of data and the open exchange of that data is critical to process automation and safe, efficient and reliable operations,” said Cristina Olimpieri, Product Manager Antennas at HUBER+SUHNER.
“The 5G communication standard represents a significant opportunity to create smart factories but to fully take advantage of 5G and Wi-Fi 6E networks, products which support the low latency and high capacity they provide are also required. The SENCITY® OMNI-M antenna meets this need, ensuring process automation based on real-time analytics.” Providing the highest multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) configuration currently available on the market, the SENCITY® OMNI-M antenna offers unparalleled performance. It can be individually configured to support 5G up to 4x4 MIMO, Wi-Fi 6E up to 8x8 MIMO, and all GNSS (GPS) bands in one antenna housing.
The SENCITY® OMNI-M low-profile antenna is the most compact of its kind. It is mounted via a single hole, making it easy to install. “Designed for heavy network usage and delivering solid reliability, the SENCITY OMNI-M antenna provides ultrawide bandwidth within a compact and robust single antenna housing, matching in the low band of 600MHz to long-distance applications,” said Olimpieri Cristina. “This ensures industrial applications can harness the promise of 5G and ready themselves for the fourth industrial revolution.”
