New MTXGTW will be presented in next SPS IPC Drives, Nuremberg 15-17 November, Matrix Stand 10-639.

The MTX-GTW gateway is an innovative & unlimited power gateway with a complete set of wireless and wired interfaces, powered by an ARM9 processor module with embedded Linux and Java VM. By providing an easy integration and powerful interfaces, it avoids further hardware components.

The MTX-GTW embeds an industrial Freescale i.MX28 (TQMa28) module ARM9@454MHz RAM@128MB FLASH@4GB EEPROM@32KB.

Plenty of interfaces: Ethernet, WiFi, USB OTG, RS232/RS485/RS422, CAN, GPIOs; it can be used in infinite M2M and IoT applications. Its internal mini-PCIe slot can accommodate any communication board you need: LTE & GPS, HSPA+ & GPS, GPRS, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 or Bluetooth Low Energy.

Internal GPS, Bluetooth and/or WiFi (b/g/n) modules can be optionally ordered.

Based on previous MTX-GATEWAY waterproof industrial terminal, MTX-GTW will allow save space, money but not performance.

Protect your drivers!

A standard GSM patch antenna emits RF power density back into the vehicle from the antenna. The new 2J440 can reduce this by 37% and there is no interference between the GSM & GPS signal.

Inside a vehicle this often causes the modem to operate at its highest power output levels and can amplify EMF power densities surrounding the driver.

This includes: Cars, Buses, Motor Homes taxis and any other place you find yourself inside & in close proximity to conductive walls that reflect microwave emissions.

Simply Put, Conductive surroundings act as concentrating reflectors "Like the inside of a microwave oven" When inside a metal enclosure, Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) gets trapped

inside the conductive walls creating what is scientifically called a "Faraday Cage", named after the person that discovered it, DR. Michael Faraday (1791-1867) known as the Inventor of Modern EMF (Electromagnetic Field) Principles.

The Faraday Cage Effect means that the electric charge on a conductor sits on the outer surface of it, demonstrating that radio waves cannot penetrate a Faraday cage via creating a charged reflective barrier blocking RF radiation.

Directional vs Omnidirectional Antenna?

This depends of what level of signal you need. The advantage of directional antennas is that they offer higher gain than omnidirectional antennas . The disadvantage is they are only good for static applications because you have to point the antenna towards your nearest base station which takes a little time to set up. The Omni antenna has less gain but you do not have to point the antenna in the right direction.

Our latest 4G/LTE high gain directional antenna is the LPM8270 which offers 8 dBi of gain. Providing you have at least some kind of weak signal on your application when you install the LPM then usually you will see a great leap in performance.

The LPM8270 is a directional MIMO ( sometimes referred to as diversity ).

It is a dual polarised panel antenna designed for 4G, 3G and GSM frequency bands. It has two radiating elements, one vertically polarised and one horizontally polarised, operating from 800-960, 1710-2170 and 2500-2700 MHz. Terminated with dual N-Female connectors on the back of the antenna, cable length and connectors for the adapter cables are customer specific. The LPM8270 is primarily designed for outdoor access applications using 4G with fall-back to 3G and GSM frequencies.

Visit to find your nearest tower. However use this resource carefully as some operators share towers and your local 4G mast may not necessarily be the one you are pointing the antenna at.


Radiocrafts announces narrowband RF modules for industrial market

Radiocrafts AS announced today a new radio module series for the industrial radio market. The RC17xxHP-RC232 module series provides narrowband radio performance combined with high output power for long range industrial applications.

The new module series covers all ISM bands below 1 GHz, including 169, 433 and 868 MHz, as well as some national bands used for application specific radio communication (444, 458, 465 MHz, etc.). The embedded RC232 radio protocol provide point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communication over an encrypted data link, and is very easy to use.

The narrowband modules operate in bandwidths down to 12.5 kHz, with temperature stabilized crystal oscillators to ensure reliable operation over the full industrial temperature range, -40 to +85 degrees Celsius. The RF output power is configurable up to 500 mW.


New 4G/LTE Wideband Terminal Antenna

EAD has introduced a new 4G/LTE wideband terminal antenna. Covering frequencies fom 698-960 and 1710-2700 MHz, the WTR7270 covers all 4G, LTE, 3G, GSM and cellular bands in one antenna. From the same family as the popular PTR2100 antenna, the WTR7270 is terminated in a SMA-Male connector.


Are you looking for antenna options for 915 MHz? We hope this helps..

Choosing the right antenna for your application can be confusing. We thought this might make it easier for people working on 915 MHz (or the 900 MHz band).

We have picked out a number of diverse external antennas that engineers may wish to consider.

1/4 Wave Whip Antenna

A terminal-mount short 1/4 wave moulded whip antenna (it needs a ground plane) with Reverse polarity SMA or standard SMA (TNC, BNC are also possible). Suitable for most applications.

1/4 Wave Whip Antenna with Flying Lead

Like the one above, this is a 915 MHz 1/4 Wave whip antenna and has stud at the bottom for permanent mounting. The cable is RG174 and the length and choice of connector is up to you.

Stub Antenna

A 1/4 wave helical stubby antenna 55mm long. The connector can be SMA or RP-SMA and can be straight or right angle. This antenna also needs a ground plane of at least 65mm in diameter.

Swivel Dipole Antenna

A 1/2 wave dipole antenna. The antenna can lock in vertical or horizontal positions or at 45 degrees if required. This antenna is does not need a ground plane and is ideal for terminal applications.

Waterproof Compact Omni Antenna

For outdoor applications. Where a rugged, weatherproof dipole-like antenna is needed that does not require a ground plane.

Available with a variety of connectors with straight and right angle options, these antennas a Flame retardant, with a UV-resistant sheath with versions at 915 MHz for mounting onto metal or plastic.

A through hole (stud mount) version is also available based on a N-Female Panel mount connector (with O-Ring for IP69).

Outdoor Wall-Mount Omni Antenna

A wall-mounted version of the above compact Omni is also available. It has an N-Female connector and comes supplied with a stainless steel bracket. The cable can be specified to order and depends on the length of run, that’s when you would need to talk to us. The cable needs an N-Male to connect to the antenna the other end can be specified by the customer.



Don’t leave the antenna selection until last, it can be the most important part of a successful product.

No matter where you are in the development Dextronix can provide the necessary support and test services required to deliver high performing antenna solutions with reliable and predictable performance tuned to your application.
