2.4GHz Transmit and Receive amplifier RT-2400-2



Bild RT-2400

Single component of the complete system described above. Used in cases where antenna, cables and WiFi card is already in use.

This booster is used to extend the range of wireless-LAN connections. It amplifies both directions, the received signal as well as the transmitted signal. The low-noise receive booster raises the received signal by about 13db (typ.) which is sufficient to compensate for cable losses.
The power supply (12VDC) of the booster is done over the coaxial cable (remote supply). A DC injector (aka Bias-T) to inject the 12VDC into the cable is supplied, an additional 12VDC power supply is required (not included). WiMo offers power supplies like MFJ-4103 or any other 12VDC power supply for this use.
The booster has a weatherproof case which is installed to the mast directly below the antenna, the required stainless steel hardware is included. All connectors are N female.




Attention! Important notice!
Depending on the input level this amplifier can emit up to one (1) W HF power. Alone or in conjunction with high-gain antennas the effective radiated power (EIRP) can exceed the max. allowed power in your country. In Germany and most other EU countries max. EIRP is 100mW is allowed.

The CE certification is valid only in conjunction with the other components described in the entire system above.

2.4GHz Receive amplifier RB-2400



    When is an receive amplifier adequate?
  • When received signal level is not sufficient
  • When no larger antenna can be used
  • When very long cable runs (>15m) must be used
    Notes
  • Mount the receive booster as close to the antenna as possible.
  • Use a short low-loss coax cable to connect the antenna to the booster.
  • Use a coax cable from the booster to your WLAN device.
  • Install a lightning arrestor before the receive booster



RB-2400

You can extend the reach of your wireless-LAN not only by raising the output power, but also by increasing the sensitivity of your system. This is the purpose of the receive booster RB-2400. This booster has an excellent low noise figure (2.4 dB typ.) and supplies sufficient amplification to work with longer cable runs to the WLAN device.
To achieve best results the mount the receive booster as close to the antenna as possible and use a good low-loss cable (Ecoflex-10, Aircom+ or Ecoflex-15) to connect the antenna to the booster. The booster is weatherproof and can be mounted directly to the mast, all required hardware is included (stainless steel). The losses ofthe cable from booster to the WLAN device are negligible because the booster yields enough amplification.
With a point-to-point link the distance is greatly enhanced, once due to the better noise figure of the receiver (compared to a usual WLAN card), further due to the compensation for cable losses.
The power supply of the booster is done over the coax cable (remote feed). A DC-injector (Bias Tee) to feed the rerquired 12V DC to the coax is supplied, a small 12V power supply is required (not included), e.g. our switching power supply SPS-8041 or any other 12V DC supply.
All connectors N female.

5GHz Receive amplifier RB-5600



The RB-5600 receive booster improves the signal to noise ratio (SNR) of a wireless-LAN connection by about 6dB. That results usually in twice the distance available at the same data rate. Most installations require the use of a longer coax cable between antenna an WiFi device. The considerable cable losses on 5GHz can be compensated by using such a receive booster close to the antenna.

Product includes power supply and DC injector for remote supply over the coax cable.

  • Technical Data
  • Frequency 5470 - 5725 MHz
  • Gain 22 dB
  • Noise figure 2.5 dB
  • Insertion loss 3 dB
  • Supply voltage 12 to 14.5 V (over coax)
  • Power consumption: 150mA

5GHz Transmit/Receive BoosterRT-5600


The RT-5600 is a bi directional amplifier for the 5GHz band. It supports the Wifi standards 802.11a and 802.11h.
The RT-5600 produces 0.5 W output power at a typical transmit amplification of 15dB. With the solid construction including a large aluminium heat sink the amplifier is very well suited for mobile or stationary and permanent use at highest possible data rates.
The receive amplifier utilizes a modern PHEMT transistor and achieves a typical gain of 20 dB at an exceptionally low noise figure of only 2dB, a must for a high quality HF link. The maplifier is useable up to 5825MHZ. To protect against nearby transmitters the receive amp is equipped with a stripline filter. The emplifier has a solid weatherproof case, intended for direct installation close to the antenna. Power is supplied via the antenna cable and a DC injector.

Stainless steel mounting hardware and a DC injector is included.

WLAN System



Bild RT-2400-2 Set CE certified system for extended range, consisting of
  • Omni directional antenna with 5 dBi gain
  • Coaxial cable ECOFLEX-10, 1m long
  • RT-2400-1 WLAN-Booster with DC-Injektor
  • Coaxial cable ECOFLEX-10, 55m long
  • LUCENT ORINOCO Wavelan Card PC 24E-H-ET
This configuration ensures that the max. allowed radiated power (EIRP) of 100mW is not exceeded.

The included booster RT-2400-1 amplifies both directions, the received signal as well as the transmitted signal. The low-noise receive booster raises the received signal by about 13db (typ.) which is sufficient to compensate for cable losses.
The power supply (12VDC) of the booster is done over the coaxial cable (remote supply). A DC injector (aka Bias-T) to inject the 12VDC into the cable is supplied, an additional 12VDC power supply is required (not included).

The booster has a weatherproof case which is installed to the mast directly below the antenna, the required stainless steel hardware is included. All connectors are N female.

If you already own the appropiate antenna, cables and WiFi card you can use the booster alone (see below). In this case you are solely responsible for assuring the max. allowed power output of the entire system.

Lightning protection



Lightning protections (surge arrestors) should be used with any larger antenna installation, expecially if the antenna is mounted outside the building in a high location. But also antennas with less visible installation points can be subject to very high overvoltages, should a lightning strike nearby.


See here for surge arrestors.
