It’s ideal for wireless applications performed on warehouse or manufacturing floors used for shipping and receiving, inventory control, and logistics management. With a cylindrical form factor and high gain, the antenna can be installed in open-air or high ceiling environments. The MegaSphere comes with multiple mounting options, including a beam clamp mount and a ceiling grid clip mount.

Offering a maximum input power of 50W, the MegaSphere features vertical polarization with a peak gain of 6 dBi and an impedance of 50 Ω. It operates and stores at a temperature range of -40°C to 70°C, and is housed in a durable, impact resistant PVC housing material.
