Ultra-thin translucent ceiling-mount DAS omni-directional antenna is optimized for easy installation

April 26, 2016
Pulse Electronics says its new Clarity solid-ceiling adapter "makes installation amazingly simple."

Pulse Electronics has added the Clarity White Antenna to its existing Clarity family of DAS, ultra-thin, ceiling-mount, omni-directional antennas. "An extension of the translucent Clarity antenna family, the white antenna offers a lower cost, yet high performance antenna that fits the aesthetic requirements of many buildings and public places," states a company press release. "It can be installed with Pulse's new solid-ceiling adapter which makes antenna installation amazingly simple, even in hard-pan ceilings without easy installation access."

The new Clarity White family covers cellular bands 608-2700MHz. Like all antennas in Pulse Electronics' PIMinator line of DAS antennas, the new antenna's PIM performance is billed as exceptional, with a rating better than -155dBc at 2x20 watts (2x43dBm). These antennas meet global wireless carrier requirements, including AT&T and Verizon Wireless. The ultra-thin antenna extends just 0.33 inches (8.4mm) below the ceiling. The antenna is 9.41 inches (239mm) in diameter, so it's hardly noticeable, notes the company. The antenna blends in with a ceiling so is ideal for providing wireless network access in hotels, convention centers, formal spaces, older buildings with low ceilings, and shallow spaces. Notably, the antenna's new installation adapter (part number: 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," notes Pulse. "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."

The Clarity White family consists of six variants plus a reflector, bringing to 12 the number of variants in the Clarity family. Parts include the: 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.

"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," comments Olivier Robin, general manager for Pulse Electronics Wireless Infrastructure business unit. "The white antenna continues the beauty of the Clarity transparent family and offers an additional choice at a reasonable price."

Samples of the Clarity White antennas are currently available. Production time is 4-6 weeks. For more information see the Clarity-White datasheet at http://productfinder.pulseeng.com/products/datasheets/L173.pdf, and the installation adapter at http://productfinder.pulseeng.com/products/datasheets/DASCLINSERT.pdf.

The full Pulse family of DAS antennas will be on display at the DAS Congress, May 16th - 18th, 2016, at the Aria Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada.
