07-09-2023 | Mouser Electronics | Passives

Mouser now stocks the Sunshade 5-in-1 antennas from Molex. Engineered for advanced commercial vehicles and wireless applications, the antennas combine LTE/5G full-band cellular, Wi-Fi and GNSS functionalities into a single compact solution while delivering reliable performance and extreme design flexibility.

The antennas are low-profile antennas with built-in cellular (LTE and 5G) MIMO *2, Wi-Fi (tri-band) *2, and GNSS features, making them excellent solutions for diverse and advanced applications. The cellular 5G frequency on these antennas ranges from 698MHz to 960MHz and 1,710MHz to 5GHz, while the Wi-Fi frequency comprises 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz. The GNSS frequency range is 1,561MHz to 1,602MHz RF. Power for the antennas is specified at 2W.

Constructed of high-quality plastic material and mated with SMA straight female cable plugs that facilitate adjustable cable lengths and are adaptable to FAKRA and HFM connectors, the improved design of the antennas is provided in two mounting styles for maximum flexibility. The 220573-1000 antenna has a bolt-nut for usage on a vehicle top or roof cabinet, while the 219264-0001 has adhesive on the backside for mounting on any surface type. All antennas are ROHS compliant and have an IP67 protection rating, making them waterproof and protecting them against contact with objects greater than 1mm in diameter.

The antennas measure a compact 95mm x 95mm x 38mm. The antennas perform excellently on metal and non-metal surfaces and have an operating temperature range of -40C to +85C. Target applications include commercial vehicles (i.e., networking, smart vehicles, telematics boxes and specialized vehicles), wireless infrastructure (IoT, advanced IIoT and IT) and telecommunications/networking infrastructures.
