Meander - A Decorated History

RFI designed and released its first Cellular Meander collinear in 2004 to suit the growing 2G GSM cellular markets.

The CD7000 Series. The Meander Evolution Continues

As cellular technologies have evolved, RFI has been at the forefront of designing and manufacturing antenna for 3G and now most recent 4G LTE networks. RFI’s success lies in the use of their patented Meander radiating elements. These Meander circuits are coupled together to deliver extraordinary consistency in gain, coverage pattern and bandwidth. The result is a unique antenna able to operate across all mobile phone networks globally, housed in the one unit. The latest in this evolution is the 7000 Series which include a range of mobile, fixed telemetry and base antennas.

Fixed Telemetry and Base Antennas

The CD7200 antenna utilizes the same patented Meander radiating elements found in the CD7100 Series mobile antennas

  • The CD7200 Series fixed telementry antennas are mounted via a 1⁄2/13mm threaded stud and are ideal for installation on electrical enclosures, ATM’s, vending machines or fixed mobile signage, especially when high gain is required.

LTE Transit Antenna

The TLA4100/4200 transit antenna is designed specifically for rail, light rail and bus applications and other similarly demanding transit or stationary applications. With a VSWR less than 2.5:1 covering 698-2700 MHz, the TLA4100/4200 operate in all cellular bands globally plus the 2.4 & 5.8 GHz ISM bands. In addition the TLA4200 incorporates an active GPS antenna for asset tracking and AVL applications. Designed utilizing a high impact, UV stabilized low Flame, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) radome, the TLA4100/4200 is IP68 rated to fully protect against the ingress of dust and water.
