PCTEL Introduces the BMLPV5000 5G NR FR1 Low Profile Antenna for Industrial IOT and Smart Cities.

The PCTEL BMLPV5000 supports the high-speed requirements of complex RF communication systems required for 5G FR1 network deployments in smart city applications, including machine-to-machine communication, transportation network infrastructure, smart energy networks, and small cells installations. IP67-rated, it is housed in a rugged and compact radome, making it ideal for indoor or outdoor applications requiring a discrete antenna solution.

The BMLPV5000 is the latest in the extremely successful MLPV Series. It is a Low Profile Antenna that operates from 600 MHz to 6 GHz. This multi-band antenna provides 2.6 dBi gain from 689-960 MHz, 1 dBi gain from 1710-2170 MHz, 2.3 dBi gain from 3300-4200 MHz, and 3.1 dBi gain from 4900-5985 MHz. It can handle up to 150 W of power, features vertical/linear polarization, and has a VSWR of less than 3:1.

It measures 8.59 x 3.63 cm (3.38 H x 1.43 OD in) and is recommended to use with high-frequency cables. It has two recommended high efficiency mount options; either MLFML195C permanent mount or GMLFML195C magnetic mount, for optimal performance.
