Westbury, NY (Wednesday, July 31, 2013) – Electro Industries/GaugeTech (EIG) announces the release of the ANT18769, a remote, mounted wireless (WiFi) antenna to extend the range of its Shark 100S/Shark 200S submeters with WiFi, and its MP200 high-density multi-circuit metering system with the WiFi option. The WiFi antenna has a magnetic base for easy installation and comes with a 2000mm coaxial cable for remote connection.
The remote antenna’s benefits to the WiFi power meters include:
Mounting for better line of site reception.
Ability to mount the WiFi power meters in an enclosure but still take advantage of radio based communication.
Being able to place the antenna in an optimal location, e.g., near a window in the case of a power meter installed in a basement.
The remote antenna further enhances the capabilities of the EIG power meters with WiFi communication.
